Earn a 5-star rating and let your business shine. Do you ever wonder what a 5-star rating of a business really means? It depends upon who is awarding the stars! No matter the system or scale, consumers associate 5-stars with top quality. You can be a 5-star employer in Troup County by participating in programs that can help your business become an even greater place to work. As your participation grows, so does your star-rating.
Here is how to earn stars:
Maintain Active Membership in the Chamber
Top employers are members of the LaGrange-Troup County Chamber of Commerce and participate in our numerous programs, events and committees. Be sure to keep your membership dues current and attend at least one of our program or events during a calendar year.
Be a Partner in Education
A top quality workforce is our goal! Public and private educational institutions in Troup County need business involvement – contributions of time, expertise, and financial support. Participate as a Partner in Education to at least one public elementary, middle or high school, Hillside Montessori School, Lafayette Christian School and/or LaGrange Academy to earn your star.
Trade in Troup
Think local when purchasing goods and services for your business. Studies show 40 cents of every dollar spent locally has local benefits. These dollars finance our quality of life, making every local purchase a good investment in Troup County. To earn this star, your business will not only need to take the “Trade in Troup” pledge but will also encourage customers to shop in Troup County and will put in place purchasing practices to support local businesses.
Go Drug Free
Certified drug free workplaces in Georgia receive a state-mandated 7.5% discount on worker’s compensation insurance. It’s a simple, smart and profitable program. We’ll guide you through the process so you can earn this star. www.livedrugfree.org.
