How Does the Earned Day System Work?

Hard work should be rewarded. Too many businesses compensate their employees based on the hours they put in. You could even compare this type of work to “time served”.

However we all know that not every hour is equal. No one can operate at 100% all of the time and some projects are smoother or more challenging than others. We created earned days as a way to reward employees for a job well done.

With EDS we quantify what a standard week should look like and set a schedule with this in mind. When projects are complete on time and to a customer’s satisfaction employees are rewarded with PTO. If for whatever reason a project isn’t completed as scheduled a discussion is had with management on “Why?”. We diagnose the issue and do our best not to let it happen again. If it’s a “controllable” variable our employees will lose their PTO for the week. This system creates accountability within our organization. The PTO can be used to take time off to handle personal affairs and spend time with the family. We believe balance in life is invaluable and rewarding our people with balance helps with focus on the job and results in better outcomes for customers.
