Pride will reward an employee making a referral $250 when the referred applicant is employed and active for a 3-month period.
Since January 1, 1998, employees have been rewarded with shares of stock. At the beginning of each year an independent appraisal is conducted to determine the updated value of each share. The value has really grown due to the contributions from Pride and the performance level of the company. Employees must be vested with 5 years of service, with 1,000 hours of service worked in each year, to be eligible for the value of the shares.
Pride offers an Employee Assistance Plan which provides up to three free counseling sessions to all employees and their eligible dependents for issues such as marital conflict, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, personal loss, anger, time management and stress. Financial and legal consultation is also available.
Pride has established a scholarship program for all employees who are full-time and have completed 1 year of service. For your child to qualify, he/she must be a post-secondary applicant. Selection of winners is based on various factors such as GPA, goals, achievements, community involvement and letters of recommendation. $500 scholarships are awarded to chosen participants.
Pride recognizes those who reach service excellence at anniversary milestones. Employees that have 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30 years of service are rewarded with a gift and receive their anniversary date off. Employees achieving 10 or more years are honored at a yearly 10+ service event and receive the day after Thanksgiving off.
Pride provides hourly employees with a $50 gift card and two hours of scheduled PTO quarterly for meeting attendance award criteria.
Pride celebrates employees’ birthdays each month with a luncheon, client experience with a consumer advocate, team-building games, giveaways, and company updates/questions with the CEO. All employees receive a gift from Pride on the day of their birthday.
Pride's Birthday Express is published monthly to recognize birthdays and service anniversaries.
Pride rewards its employees with days off, gift cards, and free tickets to events including hockey games, minor league baseball games and other events.
