Chambers Plan News: Business Assistance Services (BAS) - Have you tried it?
Your Chambers Plan provides services for both the business owner and their employees. Here's some information if you have not used this benefit offered to all companies taking part in the Chambers of Commerce Group Insurance Plan. If you've used it, let us know your experience!
THE CHAMBERS PLAN BAS IS A FREE SERVICE BUILT INTO EACH CHAMBERS PLAN EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PROGRAM. YOU WILL INCUR NO OUT-OF-POCKET EXPENSES WHEN ACCESSING THESE SERVICES, NOR ARE YOU REQUIRED TO SUBMIT ANY CLAIM FORMS.
MOST SMALL BUSINESSES CAN'T AFFORD TO HAVE A TEAM OF SPECIALISTS ON HAND TO HELP DEAL WITH UNEXPECTED PROBLEMS THAT REQUIRE AN EXPERT OPINION. THE CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE GROUP INSURANCE PLAN® BUSINESS ASSISTANCE SERVICE IS DESIGNED TO FILL THIS GAP. THIS CONFIDENTIAL SERVICE PROVIDES ACCESS TO PROFESSIONAL ACCOUNTING, COUNSELLING, LEGAL AND HUMAN RESOURCE EXPERTS WHO UNDERSTAND THE CHALLENGES SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS FACE.
FOR BUSINESS OWNERS
Provides up to six hours of Legal, Accounting and Specialized Human Resource services combined, per calendar year.
Legal Advice | When faced with a legal dilemma, this service provides practical and current interpretations of company, partnership, taxation and insolvency law, plus all relevant aspects of common and civil law.
Accounting Advice |When the numbers don’t add up, advice from a professional enables owners and managers to strengthen management and control functions through expert counsel.
Specialized Human Resource Services | When facing a technical human resource issue, from termination processes and overtime pay to legislative/labour law concerns, this service provides you answers confidentially, via telephone.
HUMAN RESOURCE COACHING
Confidential telephone coaching helps address a wide range of challenging people issues, including performance management, absenteeism, conflict and difficult behaviour.
When an employee is consistently absent from work, or underperforming, there is a strong probability a personal issue is the cause. Owners now have the resources available to help employees deal with situations affecting performance, through face-to-face counselling with a trained professional.
ACCESS IS SIMPLE
