More, adjective: in greater quantity, amount, measure, degree, or number
If NPA had to sum up 2014 in one word, the word that comes to mind is more. Not more in the greedy, grabby sense, but more in the bigger and better sense. Which is good not only for us, but more importantly, for you – our current and prospective customers.
Following are just a few examples:
More Staff: We now weigh in at 20 hardworking, dedicated employees. Quite the jump from the early days, when it was just Norm and Michelle working out of a shoebox. New in 2014 was administrative assistant Katie Beadz.
More Clients: We are honored to add new folks to our client list every year, and in 2014 we welcomed Lake County. We are currently providing return-to-work services to over 25 school districts, cities and counties and look forward to “closing the deal” with an assortment of newcomers in early 2015.
More Injured Workers Brought Back to Work: We could put our Data Guru, Sarah Morris-Peterson, on the spot and ask for an exact number of workers we brought back to modified duty using the OURSystem® in 2014, and she could deliver – she’s that good. We’ll give her a slide since she’s still knee-deep in year-end reports, but we will say that all those pretty graphs she sends out every month underscore the program’s success. Those columns marked “Working” are almost too tall to fit on the page.
More Dollars Saved: NPA is in this business to help its clients save on workers’ comp costs. It’s why we do what we do, plain and simple. Some of our clients save a lot, some save not-quite-as-much, but all of our customers experience a reduction in costs.
More Dogs: Yes, you’re right. This category should have been at the top of the list. In addition to Bodie, Tucker, Louie, Shadow and Ruby, we’ve added Bandit, an adorable Black Labrador-Dachshund mix.
More Expertise: When people come to work at NPA, they stay. And stay, and stay. It’s a great place to work, and every last one of us enjoys helping people. All those years in the saddle add up to a veritable brain trust of expertise. So. Got a question? Puzzled by a problem? Run it by us. Chances are we’ve been-there-done-that and would be happy to help you out.
More Experience: 2015 marks – drumroll, please – NPA’s 30th Anniversary. To celebrate that milestone (and it will be a celebration — NPA is always up for a party), Norm will be sharing “pearls of wisdom” throughout the year on this blog. Let him know if you have a topic you’d like him to discuss, at http://firstname.lastname@example.org.
More Opportunities: As we begin our 30th year, we are so excited to not only mine the past, but also to look ahead and keep searching – for new ideas, more effective work systems, innovations in technology, you name it. Most of all, we look forward to more opportunities to spend time with you, our current and prospective clients. Best wishes to all for a great 2015!
