Cost Saving Programs

The Partnership’s Member Benefit Programs are designed to provide immediate – and substantial – impacts on the bottom lines of Partnership member investors. At the same time, these programs can increase employee satisfaction and retention while reducing liability.  Taking advantage of these programs will also help you focus on what’s important to you: your business.

As a proud member of the Partnership, the Copy Store has taken advantage of the BNP’s networking, young professional and cost saving programs like HR Outsourcing through Alcott HR.  The BNP has been the source of solutions to many of our small to mid-size business challenges.  We couldn’t be more pleased with our engagement and membership.
