President: Base Rate Increase Adds To Total Compensation Package

 

President and COO, Rob Penner, addresses the company at Bison's Annual Awards Dinner.

Bison will make another major investment in our Company Drivers beginning January 3, 2016, increasing base rates across most of our fleet. Owner Operator increases will be announced in the first quarter.

The pay increase comes at a time when many companies in our industry are holding the line in an attempt to manage costs. We’re doing the opposite, raising pay to make sure we attract and retain the best Drivers in the industry and keep them productive.

More than just a simple pay raise, this base rate increase is another example of our commitment to providing an excellent total compensation package, ensuring our Drivers are able to maximize their earning potential at Bison.

Operation Peanut: Bison Helps Paralyzed Dog Find New Home

 

One of Peanut's sisters drew this picture of her newest family member after arriving in Winnipeg.

A year ago, Peanut, a small dachshund from London, Ontario, was paralyzed. His family couldn't afford the surgery, and they worked tirelessly to help him regain his mobility. He started to gain limited control of his hindquarters just four months ago. He can walk, just not very well. Now, however, the mom has got to go back to work after her one-year maternity leave. This means little Peanut would be left alone, crated all day, unable to move and exercise, which would be detrimental to his recovery.

So Peanut’s family put out a plea on Facebook, asking if anyone who understood his condition would be able to take Peanut and provide a loving and caring environment for him. The message went out across all of Canada.

Safe Driving Rewards Program Issues Over $25 Million To Drivers

As safety becomes increasingly prevalent in the transportation industry, safe driving rewards programs are becoming more and more common. With drivers looking for opportunities to increase their earnings, companies are offering significant financial rewards to drivers who have a proven track record of safety on the road.

As the industry leader in safety, Bison Transport's Safe Driving Rewards Program (SDRP) was one of the first of its kind and has proven to be one of the most successful rewards programs in the transportation space. Established in 2005, Bison's SDRP has issued over $25 million in financial rewards to its Drivers since its inception.

 

Roger has completed nearly three million consecutive safe driving miles.

"The Safe Driving Rewards Program gives us a monetary incentive to focus on safety, working our way up the bonus scale mile by mile, with a sense of pride," said Roger Maltman, a Bison Driver who is on pace to reach three million safe driving miles this year.
