Member company focuses on employee wellness, and wins big
While the business community outlook has ebbed and flowed the past few years, there are businesses that are growing in Greater Cincinnati. Member company Best Upon Request is a certified minority and women business enterprise offering on-site concierge services to organizations nationwide. Concierge services are a viable and highly utilized employee benefit, and in healthcare, an innovative approach to holistic, patient-focused care.

Research indicates that job satisfaction and employee retention can be achieved by those companies who provide a work-life balance to their employees. According to a recent MetLife Annual Employee Benefits Trends Study, 82% of their employees stated that work-life balance programs would improve their productivity. Best Upon Request provides the solution to employee health and wellness and job satisfaction.
Considering their focus on employee health and wellness, it's no wonder that they have received some attention. In 2009, the American Hospital Association awarded its exclusive endorsement to their concierge services. Best Upon Request won the 2009 Better Business Bureau's Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics and ranked 47th on the 2010 Hispanic Business magazine's Fastest-Growing Companies list.
Most recently this member has received the Larry Albice Entrepreneurial Award, a spotlight in CincyChic, and additional coverage in More Magazine.
Best Upon Request is also a Portfolio Company of the Chamber's Minority Business Accelerator which works to accelerate the development of minority businesses and to strengthen and expand the regional minority entrepreneurial community.
The Chamber congratulates this member company on its recent accolades and is excited to continue working with them to help continue to grow their business.
