Treating drivers as partners and empowering them is a core belief at Bounce. We are co-creating Bounce along with our passionate and committed drivers. We think, strategize and work together to build the company. Bounce drivers are constantly helping each other. We are always working on new ideas and strategies that translate into profitable ride options for our drivers.
The reason why drivers help each other, consult with each other, and work on ideas/strategies/tactics together as partners is all related to the compensation plan. Because every driver has stock options, i.e., an ownership stake in the company, any driver’s success is every drivers’ success. It really mutes the competitive feelings and changes the equation from driver versus driver to “this is our company.” As one of our owner-driver puts it, “It’s not the ‘every man for himself’ culture here and that’s what I love about Bounce.
