JOLIET, Ill. — A new incentive program at North America Central/Illinois Central School Bus aims to increase safety and attendance among staff members.
The school bus contractor’s safety and attendance incentive program is open to drivers, mechanics and monitors nationwide, at all 54 of the company’s locations.
To qualify, a staff member must be free of preventable accidents and workers’ compensation claims and have perfect attendance for a given month. All such staff will have their name put in a drawing at the end of the month, and the winner at each location will receive a flat-screen TV.
February was the first month of the program, which will be ongoing.
“It is anticipated that the incentive will not only boost attendance and safety awareness, but will also serve as a morale booster throughout the company,” officials said in a statement.
North America Central/Illinois Central School Bus currently transports more than 200,000 children daily in its fleet of 3,400 buses.
