Corporate Wellness Check Up


 

Due to recent market conditions and the resulting awareness of how they are impacting our clients, Aging Workforce Solutions  is enhancing the scope of services we deliver to our clients.  We have developed this questionnaire to help identify opportunities for greater efficiencies in a number of areas we believe will benefit the companies and employees with whom we work. Our experience has shown these to be areas where significant value can be obtained with proper planning.

Give yourself 5 points for every aspect of planning you and/or your colleagues have successfully addressed.

Tally your score at the end to see how prepared you and your company are to maximize the value of your company-today and in the future. We will be making the Corporate Wellness Check Up an interactive form shortly.  Until then, please copy and paste it into an email, and send it to us, or copy and paste it into a document, print and fax to 866-460-1947.

Scoring the Checkup

We have put this brief questionnaire together because of the value this process can bring to the business owners we serve.  We have recently enhanced our services in these areas because we recognize how important they are, and how BIG of a difference proactively addressing them can make in maximizing the current and future value of your company.

Evaluations of case studies have taught us the difference for our clients can literally be millions of dollars. 

 75-100:  Good job.  You have kept your eye on the ball and are well positioned to exit with and secure the maximum amount of revenue for you and your family, now and in the future, with minimal complications.

50-75:  You are a work in progress-don’t give up now!  You probably have a few loose ends that need to be tied up.  Budget some time and set goals for getting top priorities done asap.     

25-50:  The challenges of keeping the business productive are possibly keeping you from addressing these key issues. Do you have a strategy to get on top of your highest priorities regarding making your succession plan part of your success plan?

0-25:  You are in a danger zone.  It is time to slow down enough to assess your situation and break down tasks into manageable pieces.

Please complete the evaluation and supporting final questions and fax them back in to 866-460-1947, or scan and email to agingworkforcesolutions@gmail.com.

Considering my score:

o   I recognize I have challenges and wish to coordinate a risk free initial consultation to better evaluate how well my company is positioned regarding succession issues.

My two biggest concerns at this point are:

1.

2.

o   I would like a copy of the document preparation list

o   I would like copy of the estate planning preparation list   

o   I believe I am in a good space, and don’t wish to take advantage of a risk free introductory consultation to review my situation.

Aging Workforce Solutions thanks you for your participation.
