A Special Opportunity for one Chamber Member Company

Save $1350 per Employee per Year

A healthier workplace and better quality of life for each employee is coming your way in “Preventing Sickness & Enjoying Well-Being”
The large not-for-profit Integrated Benefits Institute (full of PhD’s) http://ibiweb.org/ supported by major insurance companies, retailers and manufacturers conducted a study showing that the average employer loses $5400 per year per employee due to sickness. This does not include the cost of insurance premiums, administration, or loss of sales. It is comprised of sick days, days at work sick resulting in lower productivity, and long-term illness.

R3 Results, an educational film production company spun-off from R3 Consulting, which has coached 1-in-5 of the Fortune 50, is looking for a company to participate in its next film project “Preventing Sickness & Enjoying Well-Being.” The company should have a minimum of 50 employees. About a dozen volunteers from the company would take part in coaching that will reduce sickness at work, and address deep-rooted resistant problems and patterns. The goal is a 25% reduction of losses over the next year. There will be no charge to the company. For a company with 1000 employees this could mean a savings of $1,350,000 per year. For a company of 100 it would mean $135,000 per year and improved quality of life and employee appreciation. This is offered on a first come basis. If interested please immediately contact Ken Hantman for details at ken@r3results.com or 215-947-2338.

The Real Value of Joining a Local Chamber of Commerce

TEST

The Schapiro Group, an Atlanta-based market research firm, found positive attitudes among adults in 2012 have actually increased over the very favorable findings of the first study in 2007.

Advocates of chambers of commerce have long believed that when a company is active in its local chamber, it is doing the right thing not only for the community but for its own success as well. This project, commissioned by the American Chamber of Commerce Executives a a replication of its 2007 study of the same name, is designed to determine the real value to companies in terms of consumer outcomes of joining and being active in their local chamber of commerce.
