“One way we help our team members perform at their maximum, enjoy their work and enjoy their lives without stress, is by providing Marketplace Chaplains,” said Ray Huffines, who has a string of auto dealerships in the North Texas area.
“There are some situations we as dealers just aren’t the best able to deal with without expert advice,” he added. “Marketplace Chaplains come by the dealerships weekly to say, ‘Hello,’ speak with the team, and handle any personal needs or issues they have.”
One study by the Velasquez-Manoff Firm at Columbia University, New York, reported that stress-related issues cost corporate America $300 billion annually.
The presence of chaplains has reduced the foot traffic in and out of the HR Office,” said Peggy Maher-Daniels, Human Relations Director, for Burris Logistics in Elkton, Maryland.
Marketplace Chaplains currently work in dozens of types of businesses across 44 U.S. states, in 982 cities, along with 4 foreign countries and 1 commonwealth.
“The stresses documented by JWT and confirmed by innovative CEOs all over the country are the same ones that face each of us every day,” said Marketplace Chaplains’ President and COO Richard S. De Witt. “I am grateful these business leaders are addressing these issues by using Marketplace Chaplains.”
