Business Assistance Service
Providing Owners the Resources to Help Manage their Business More Efficiently
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 (BAS) 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. One-on-one consultation is often financially out of reach for many businesses, however through the Chambers Plan BAS, firms have access to expert advisors able to help their business grow.
The Chambers Plan BAS provides services for both the business owner and their employees.
For Business Owners
MANAGEMENT SERVICES – Provides up to nine 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 behavior.
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.
