Investment for the Program

The regular annual license fee will be $597 and the fee for each employee to access each course will be $37.

These prices are unbelievably low compared to the costs associated with on-site training.

Just the travel costs associated with an on-site presentation would be thousands of dollars. That doesn’t account for the presenter fees which can be thousands more, especially if you need to repeat the presentations on multiple days to accommodate different crews.

And what about the time employees are off work and the overtime pay that may be required?

All this totals up to thousands of dollars that may be difficult to justify when budgets are challenged.

But if you think the post-launch prices are unbelievable...

Look at what we are offering
to the first 10 companies that register for the program.

The first 10 companies that register for the program will

Save 50% on the annual license fee.

That’s right. Your annual program license fee will only be $297.

And if you’re one of the first 10 companies to register the per employee access per course fee will only be $27.

That’s unbelievable! But there’s more!

If you are one of the first 10 companies to register for the program, you will have access to the Bulk Buying Program which offers
an additional 25 – 45% in savings on the employee course access fees.

What does this mean for you?

If one hundred employees accessed one course over a year your total investment would be $2294 (plus applicable taxes).

That is at least a 50% saving of what you would pay for only one day of on-site training.

And - No Stress, No Hassle trying to get employees into the room at the same time on the same day.

What would that be worth to you?

These incredible savings should be enough to make you jump at the
chance to be one of the first 10 companies to register for the program.

But if you want even more value, be one of the first 10 companies to register and

Launch pricing will be guaranteed for life.

That right! You will continue to receive these incredibly discounted prices for as long as you pay the annual license fee and remain actively registered in the program.

Why Are We Doing This?

A message from Carolyn Schur, Founder, Alert@Work Human Resource Services

Since 1996, I have been working with 24/7 companies across Canada and the US.

I know shiftworkers are desperately in need of health and safety education to help them Sleep Better and Feel Better and managers want to reduce absenteeism, injuries and health costs.

But I can’t tell you the number of times companies are prevented from providing this education and achieving their goals because they simply do not have the budget for on-site presentations. Or they cannot logistically manage on-site presentations for thousands of employees on different shifts or at different sites.

And sometimes when I am on-site, employees are simply too tired to benefit from the presentation.

But all these reasons notwithstanding, there is still a need for the health and safety education for shiftworkers.

So I decided to design a program that would not only make this education available to all employees, at their convenience, it would also be financially viable for companies big and small.

That’s why we’re doing this. So that all shiftworkers who need this information can get it and managers can reduce their stress and lighten their load.

Carolyn

Ps. I want to thank you for your confidence in the value and the benefits of this program. When you register, we will send you our Shiftwise Poster Set. This set includes 10, 11x17” posters suitable for posting in employee gathering spaces or featuring in other training sessions.

Register and pay the annual license fee and the posters will be on the way to you.
