Trucking, Logistics, Supply Chain

The war for good talent is cutthroat.

A tight labor market for drivers, shippers/receivers, and qualified logistics professionals has created real problems across the supply chain.  We can help. 

Low labor, an aging workforce, along with supply-chain pressures, have led to creative (and expensive) solutions

"We honestly have no idea how many signing bonuses walk out the door early.  If we're going to have a truck on the dock, we'll just throw a (signing bonus) at the problem until it gets filled."

You might already be issuing signing bonuses.

Here's why you need Benefi: 

You might already be issuing signing/retention bonuses. 

You don't track signing/retention bonuses well.

It's a pain to administer your bonuses on an excel sheet.  It's time consuming for your admin staff, and if they're being honest, it's easy to forget if someone has left the organization. 


This means hundreds of thousands of dollars of unearned bonuses walks out the door every year. 

You're not in the business of lending

If your team is honest, they'd rather not spend valuable time managing, tracking, and trying to collect on outstanding debts owed by ex-drivers.  There's a lot of other time-sensitive tasks they'd rather focus on

You're letting money walk out the door. 

Even in situations where your team remembers to ask for a signing bonus back if an employee leaves early, you have no recourse if the ex-employee decides not to repay the obligation. 

It's generally not worth it to pursue these debts in small claims court individually - but collectively, these losses can be substantial. 

You're noncompliant

For an industry that is increasingly scrutinized for taxes related to owner-operators, firms need to conform tightly to tax and regulatory requirements.


If you want to be able to deduct signing bonuses from other wages owing to the departing employee, you will need to document the bonus as forgivable “loan” to comply with Employment Standards restrictions on deductions from wages. Chances are you aren't doing this, due to the complexities of managing this process.
