Belle Tire will award an incentive to employees who get vaccinated against COVID-19. We will pay $25 per vaccine visit to all employees who choose to get immunized. Our employees have been working in our stores throughout the pandemic to help our customers keep their tires and vehicles in good condition and on the road so that they can get the food, medication, supplies and medical treatment they need. That’s why we want to encourage our employees to get vaccinated and protect themselves.
While Belle Tire is offering employees an incentive to get immunized, we are not mandating that employees get the vaccine. Belle Tire’s more than 2,300 employees at 127 locations in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio who choose to be immunized can get the vaccine based at locations of their choice based on the guidelines in their states and communities, as well as vaccine availability.
For nearly a century, Belle Tire has been committed to doing what’s right for our employees, their families and our customers. By providing employees with a monetary incentive for each vaccine visit, we are ensuring they don’t have to choose between earning a living and getting this vital vaccine. It’s just one more way for us to take care of our team.
At the start of the pandemic in 2020, Belle Tire locations were designated essential businesses and remained open to ensure their communities had access to essential tire and vehicle maintenance services. To further protect customers and employees, we launched a 100% contact-free customer experience, which includes stay-in-your-vehicle service and touch-free transactions.
