Privately-held transportation and logistics services provider, Dupré Logistics announced a new incentive plan totaling approximately $1 million in bonus payouts to eligible drivers in its Energy Distribution Services division. This incentive was specifically implemented to extend appreciation to drivers for performance excellence.
“We wanted our drivers to know that they are our most valuable asset, and we are committed to maintaining the “Ideal Place to Work” for them.” said Tony Becnel, Director of Operations Energy Distribution Services at Dupré Logistics. Our goal is to continually recruit and retain the best drivers within the industry.”
Structured to highlight driver longevity and commitment to customers, the incentive serves as a fresh approach to maintaining employee satisfaction while supporting the company’s goal in maintaining itself as an “Ideal Place to Work.”
“Many companies have bonus programs that are dispersed yearly and have a low percentage at paying out. We feel that Dupré’s new bonus structure is unique to the industry in that it was designed to be awarded more frequently and to reward 99% of Dupré drivers with added compensation in addition to our current driver wage increases.”
“In recent months it has become evident that recruiting and retaining the best drivers in the industry would require a different approach,” said Doug Roberie, Dupré Logistics Vice President. “Traditionally, we have provided normal annual wage increases for our drivers, but in today’s market it requires more. We wanted to put a check in our drivers’ hands to show our appreciation for their commitment to Dupré and our customers.”
