At Cliff Viessman, Inc. drivers who work hard and perform at the highest levels do not go unnoticed nor uncompensated!!
This year we have been working hard to develop a new full-time driver incentive program that will benefit not only our drivers, but also the company and the environment. Working with our Partners at PeopleNet, we have developed a Professional Driving Bonus that measures several factors within our driver’s control. With our new program, drivers who operate in a professional manner have the potential to more than double previous bonuses received under our old program. Starting bonus amounts are first dependent on miles driven.
PeopleNet provides us with reporting criteria that we can pull directly from the their system as well as factors in other company areas. A few of the criteria and factors include:
- Engine Over RPM %
- Long Idle Time
- Pre/Post Inspections
- Driver Hours of Service Violations
- Company Safety Training
- Safety Incidents that include accidents, citations, roadside inspection findings
Drivers are provided a “how am I doing” report on a weekly basis and bonuses are paid out monthly.
Cliff Viessman, Inc. is proud of, and eager to reward, the professional drivers on the road representing our company in safe, efficient, and respectable manner!
