The Earned Day System (EDS) is founded on a very simple principle: The happier your employees are in life, the better work they’ll produce on the job. We believe everyone deserves a healthy work-life balance and the ability to earn a secure living. Data shows that helping your employees doesn’t just benefit them; it unlocks their potential and breathes new life into your business.
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.
From small startups to established businesses, the Earned Day System has the potential to be transformative. By fostering excellence and work-life balance, organizations across industries are enhancing their value while improving the lives of their employees. But don’t take our word for it – see what employees and businesses have to say.
“Knowing that I have extra paid time off when I need it is a fantastic motivator that keeps me feeling positive about my work.”
“I absolutely love the security of being paid when I take time off to be with my family.”
“The fact that the company offers the Earned Day System makes me want to stay here long-term. It gives me a sense of comfort, knowing that the company cares about its employees’ well-being.”
“Having the assurance of being protected when the weather doesn’t cooperate or when I’m not feeling well is incredibly valuable to me.”
