Financial Reserves for the Flock
According to a Wall Street Journal article, Pitt Ohio, a Pittsburgh trucking company, learned from a University of Pittsburgh survey that drivers who reported financial stress had more accidents.
To improve their safety record and their driver’s lives Pitt Ohio established a goal of every employee having a $1,000 emergency fund. Each employee who saved $19 a week for 6 months received $56 from the company.
Pitt Ohio’s safety record dramatically improved and 50% of their employees have participated in the voluntary program.
1 Peter 5:2 says, “Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing.”
God calls us to shepherd our people well. Sometimes being a good shepherd even comes with gain for the business.
