Member Benefits

 

Accident Fund

SAVE 5% Up-Front on Workers’ Compensation Dividend

To help reward small business owners for encouraging safety in the workplace, we created our workers’ compensation Group Programs. Accident Fund and the Battle Creek Area Chamber have partnered to bring this Group Program exclusively to Chamber members in good standing.

As a Group member, you can save money and still get great workers’ compensation insurance for your employees. When you belong to an Accident Fund Group Program, your business can expect the following benefits:

  • 5% up-front savings on your workers’ compensation premium
  • Opportunity for dividend payments based on group’s loss history*
  • No minimum premium to qualify
  • Convenient billing options
  • Free access to Accident Fund’s Loss Prevention Toolbox™

Since 2004, Accident Fund Insurance Company of America has paid participating Battle Creek Area Chamber members dividends in excess of $735,000.

*Dividends are payable 15 months after Group expiration and require approval by Accident Fund's Board of Directors and, therefore, can never be guaranteed.

Knowledge is Power.
Do You Know What You Don’t Know?

For a business, trusting an employee means giving them access to the lifeblood of a company including the goods it sells, the production equipment it uses, the cash that flows through it, the proprietary ideas, and the reputation on which it rises or falls.

Being that knowledge is power, we’ve teamed  up with Grand Slam Investigation’s experienced private investigators to help you take every precaution to ensure that new hires are exactly who they represent themselves to be. Your first line of defense is a comprehensive, professional background check. Through your Chamber membership, the following background check packages are available:

  • Bronze Package: National Criminal Database and a Michigan I-Chat for $34.00
  • Silver Package: National Criminal Database, Michigan I-Chat, and Driving Records for $49.50
  • Gold Package: National Criminal Database, Michigan I-Chat, Driving Records and Employee Credit Check for $59.50 (One time on-site inspection is required for this search)

Other packages can be created to fit your business needs upon request. Signing up is as easy as visiting https://grandslaminvestigations.com/bcac.

HelpNet – Here for YOU and YOUR Family

Our decision to add HelpNet’s Employee Assistance Program (EAPs) into your membership benefits portfolio was easy as EAPs save jobs, careers, and even lives. They build a healthier, more productive workforce – the foundation for your organization’s success.

An EAP helps employers because it makes for happier employees. Employees have a confidential place to go with their personal problems, and a place to deal with stressors – from drug abuse to legal problems – so that they don’t carry over into the workplace.

How does an EAP work? It’s as simple as an employee under stress calling for immediate assistance from a professional counselor on topics like:

  • Workplace personality conflicts
  • Drug addiction
  • Mental health issues
  • Health and caregiving issues
  • Legal and family advice
  • Financial counseling

Grief assistance

Include HelpNet into your employee benefits package with customizable solutions and the goal to enhance employee performance and productivity.

About HelpNet

Since 1989, more than 400 companies have invested in effective EAPs and related services from HelpNet. We’re a national company based in Battle Creek, Michigan and are part of the nationally recognized Bronson Healthcare Group. For more information, please visit bronsonhealth.com.
