Sign On Bonuses (Sheboygan County Only)
April 1, 2023 – March 31, 2024
Family Connections is the recipient of Sheboygan County ARPA funds and will use these funds in a variety of ways to support those interested in joining the field of early care and education as child care teachers or family providers.
A one-time sign on bonus will be paid to all permanent full-time and part-time staff hired on or after April 1, 2023, as a Thank You from the community and to provide a small incentive to them for the hard work and dedication they have to the field of Early Childhood education. Bonuses will be paid quarterly over a year beginning with the third quarter of 2023 and ending with the second quarter of 2024.
Each bonus will be based on the employment status of the staff hired (Part time 20 hours or less or Full time 20 hours or more). Bonuses will be paid quarterly in the following way:
Staff who work up to 280 hours in the quarter will be paid a one-year bonus of $500, broken down quarterly to $125.00 per quarter worked.
Staff who work 280 or more hours in the quarter will be paid a one-year bonus of $1,000, broken down quarterly to $250.00 per quarter worked.
Sign on bonuses are non-transferable, the idea of these bonuses is to retain staff at the current center they are hired at to reduce the amount of turnover, hopefully aiding in more accessibility.
Employees who leave your center for employment with another regulated child care center will no longer be eligible to receive the sign on bonus. Family Connections will keep a database of all individuals who are paid bonuses each month and will deny any payments made to individuals who switched centers unless those centers are within the same business.
