Innovative corporate strategic provider Marketplace Chaplains has expanded into Alaska with its unique corporate care and concern service to several companies.
Alaska, known by many local residents as the “Last Frontier,” is the 44th state which Marketplace Chaplains has brought their service to, including companies like Hilcorp Energy Company, which has multiple locations there, along with the U.S. mainland.
Hilcorp employees love the Chaplains. They look forward to seeing them and know if they need someone to talk to about anything they can always contact a Chaplain. When we told the Alaskan employees about the Chaplain program they were very excited. They started asking right away when we would have them in place. I think it’s very exciting to be able to offer such an amazing benefit to our employees,” said Janis K. Sanders Human Resources Manager at Hilcorp Energy.
Recently, Marketplace Chaplains recruited a half dozen male and female, ethnically diverse chaplains and conducted start-up meeting a various HilCorp facilities.
“We have found individuals need to have care and concern everywhere and we are thrilled to be able to provide them now to Alaskan companies,” Marketplace Chaplains’ executive Brian Horner, who recently returned from a week long client start-up and chaplain training visit, said.
“Having this service ensures me the company is genuinely concerned for my personal well-being. The Marketplace Chaplains are a welcome yet unexpected reminder that there are still folks in the world that care and are willing to listen. Just a couple minutes out of someone’s busy day can often make all the difference,” added Lori Nelson Director of External Affairs, Hilcorp Energy Alaska.
