PPD Painting Offers Up To 7 Weeks Of Paid Time Off To Employees

In an unprecedented move for the commercial painting industry, Precision Painting & Decorating (PPD Painting) is deviating from standard PTO (paid time off) procedures by rolling out a new bonus plan that provides up to 7 weeks of paid time off.

The new policy includes up to 5 bonus weeks of PTO to employees who qualify in addition to the standard two weeks already provided with all Commercial Painting Jobs at PPD Painting.

This incentive-based bonus plan is available to all regular hourly employees in the Chicago and Cincinnati offices.

Recognizing the Need

Companies across the country are navigating the ripple effects of the pandemic, including how to retain employees. Fully recognizing the stress and tension inherent to the rollercoaster of COVID-19, especially for individuals working trades like commercial painting jobs, PPD Painting’s decision to offer the benefit of more paid personal time off was easy.

PPD encourages a healthy balance between business and family time. In these trying times it’s important to motivate our workforce and help them feel appreciated.

“We have always supported a positive work-life balance at PPD Painting. The commercial painting trade is demanding and doesn’t always afford flexibility, so this bonus program is an opportunity to provide our team with the flexibility and personal time they deserve.”

PPD Painting co-founder Aaron Moore

Up To 7 Weeks Of Paid Time Off

Under PPD Painting’s generous bonus PTO plan, eligible employees who complete approximately 500 hours of work per quarter will receive one week of Bonus PTO. When an employee hits all four quarterly targets in a calendar year (i.e. 2,000 hours), they receive four weeks of PTO plus an additional week that can be used in the following calendar year.

Add this to PPD Painting’s current 2 weeks of PTO and employees have the opportunity to receive a total of 7 weeks of paid time off in a single calendar year.

In addition, under the new plan, if an employee completes a job under the set budgeted number of hours, the hours* saved accumulate towards their quarterly goal. (*This number is determined by the % of hours worked towards the project when multiple workers are involved.)

“The commercial painting industry experiences a seasonal slowdown from January to March every year,” Aaron explains. “This new program can help alleviate that for PPD Painting employees who work hard and meet quarterly quotas will experience the slow season stress-free and hopefully enjoy time doing what they love most – besides painting, of course!”

The crew was very professional and courteous.

Kim Baker

Bruno is doing a good job in his new roll as project manager and Sal is the best painter that leads the crews for Phonak work projects. I get them started and they take it from there with very little monitoring on my part. I also like the partial billing, the organizing of my paints and if possible a year end report on what we spent on patching and painting would be great.

Mike Moore

Excellent workmanship, I didn't have to check your work. Paul and Alfonso were polite, and conscientious and treated my house as if it was their own.

Rick Orna

Answered their phone promptly. Paint job was a perfect match. My customer was very pleased.


Paul is an excellent painter. He was very tidy and easy to work with. Paul did a great job matching the color of our front stain and his work is professional. Paul was on time and good at communicating. I would definitely recommend Precision Painting to a friend.

You guys do great work, are reasonably priced, and stand behind your work and all your people are good to work with. I will mention that on the last few jobs I noticed a very slight slip in the finished quality, things like drips or missed spots. No big deal but something I don't expect from you guys.
