Get Started

How do you help your employees win?

First by helping them cope with constraints and baggage like on-going family problems, finances, stress, illness, grief, care of aging parents, rebellious teenagers, conflicts with co-workers and many other personal problems they bring to work each day. Sometimes life throws everyone a curve ball and the sudden crisis event can also paralyze and immobilize people.

Our Chaplains, who visit over 3,600 worksites weekly, are finding more and more employees have no real relationships of trust and confidence. Remember: When your people Win, you Win! Why not explore how we help hundreds of thousands of employees Win in life every day? It could mean the difference of a Win, Draw or Loss next year in your company!

The Biltmore had grown from a small family operation to over 1,800 employees. We began asking ourselves ‘how do we keep the ‘smallness’, and how do we assure that someone notices if our people are having a bad day?’ The EAP, still in place, was excellent, but people weren’t calling. That’s when we brought in Marketplace Chaplains.

We love our chaplains. They are here for us at all the highs and lows in our lives. I had a chaplain who left her family at the dinner table to go to the hospital and meet with a family that had just lost a child. Our chaplains have performed celebrations and funerals for our employees and as an HR professional, it is comforting to know that when I have an employee in the middle of an illness or tragedy, whether themselves or a family member, our Chaplain Care Team will assist them however they are needed.

The goal is love! In my opinion, one of the best ways to love your employees is to engage the services of Marketplace Chaplains and begin a “care” program to tangibly demonstrate God’s love to them. Of course, this is in addition to your regular practices of being patient, kind, not dishonoring, not self-seeking, not getting angry, protecting and trusting.

Aligning with Marketplace Chaplains is one of the MOST critical ways any believer in business can lead with love. In fact, two of my top retainer clients partner with Marketplace Chaplains to serve their employees and their families – another testimony to how truly great Christian leaders walk their talk.

Why an EAP is Not Enough

This is an actual update from a Chaplain Team Leader

About 12:30 a.m., I received a call from Rick, the GM at “ABC Company.” He stated he had an employee who was very depressed and thought she was possibly suicidal. Since they found her crying in the bathroom, they first called the medical hot line they received from their insurance company/EAP and the only help they received was to set an appointment a couple of weeks from now with a counselor. “Rick felt she needed help right now. When he called me, we were able to respond immediately.”

ROI

What is the potential Return on Investment for a Personal and Proactive Associate Care Service?

Absenteeism costs your company $789 per employee per year. 78% of absences are due to personal problems equaling a $615 charge to your bottom line. When a resourceful and caring “ABC Company Cares” Chaplain Team helps resolve only 10% of those problems, you would save $61.50 per associate annually.

Turnover costs your bottom line 2.5x’s per a full-time associate’s salary. A productive $55,000 a year, experienced manager leaving your company costs you $137,500. Department of Labor statistics show that 46% of the people that leave a company voluntarily do so because they don’t feel valued. Chaplains regularly help dissatisfied associates work through their problems, feel valued and remain on the job. When an “ABC Company Cares” Chaplain Team prevents one manager from leaving, the savings would far exceed any program cost.

Fraud costs your company an average of $4500 per associate annually, Journal of Acct. April 2003, (inventory, time, tools, raw materials, office supplies, long-distance usage, etc.). Behind the personal financial distress motive of fraud is the existence of an “unsharable need.” Chaplains provide that outlet which allows people to share their problems confidentially when they are in a bind. When an “ABC Company Cares” Chaplain Team prevents 1% of in-house fraud, your savings would be $45 per employee annually.

A Savings of $106.50 would be realized per Employee annually in regards to only 2 of the 10 Benefits a Chaplain Team will provide.
