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!”
