JAE Ingeniería y Desarrollo, a company from Logroño, La Rioja (Spain), clearly knows how to take care of the workers who make themselves responsible for the environment: even one week of vacation can be earned by them for riding the bicycle to their work every day.
The importance of the workers’ motivation has been heard by a lot of companies and, each one looks for the best way to award the employees. This week we have found the company who, in our point of view, has won the first place: JAE Ingeniería y Desarrollo has thought up a system in which, for every day that you go to work with a non-motorized vehicle you accumulate 10 minutes of vacation and in this way until you have reached one week.
In conclusion, a great system to thank all the people who are concerned about the environment, about the city and about the tranquility of a lot of people, because, in the end, what is more tranquil, quick and less polluting than a bicycle?
This initiative is similar to the other one that the French government announced last October, which has not yet been put into practice, but which is planning to pay 0,25 cents for each kilometer ridden to work.
It seems that the bicycle is going to continuously win more allies and maybe we, using it, will be able to earn some paid vacation, but, of course, on bicycle.
