Today I am using my 2005 Attendance Award Day off with Pay. I will get another one in the middle of January when we have the 2006 Attendance Awards at work. If you miss less than 4 hours of work for the year it accumulates into points (points=$$$$), cash and days off with pay. This year will be my sixth year of perfect attendance so I will get $300 cash, a day off with pay, and 200 points. I have my 200 points left over from last year and then some so I am accumulating a lot of points. When I want to cash them in I go to human resources and they give me a gift card to a store I would like to use the points (cash) for. 200 points equal $200. Pretty cool deal if you have perfect attendance – which isn’t a hard goal for me to accomplish.
I’m using the day to get my car inspected and pay for my tags. That’s why this post is so early in the morning – got to be at the Auto Service by 8:30 AM to get my inspection done.
