We save you money and help improve your business, it's as simple as that
The Business Improvement Group is a membership of likeminded small to medium sized business which aims to do what it says on the tin: help improve your business.
By becoming a member of BIG you get access to advice, assistance and major cost savings in running your business.
- Manage your business risks more effectively
- Receive independent insurance advice
- Access products and services at great value prices
- Build your business through low cost brand and marketing services
So how does it work?
By joining the Business Improvement Group’s membership you get the buying power of many businesses put together.
The result: you pay exceptionally competitive rates across a range of services, including insurance, maintenance, marketing and more.
Membership also includes a FREE assessment of your business’s Health & Safety, Fire Risk and insurance.
When you join you pay an annual membership charge – but, crucially, the savings you make will more than cover your annual fee. Take a look at our typical cost savings calculator to see how this works.
A unique fee basis
At BIG we have a unique incentive to save you money: for any service you receive, we take a percentage of what you’ve saved – not a percentage of the overall cost of the service.
This means you can be sure that we are working to find you the best deals (not quietly increasing charges so we get a bigger cut). This is a key part of our strategy: we will always walk the talk, so you can trust us to be working for your interests.
This contrasts dramatically with the usual fee / commission arrangement at other business support providers, where their incentive is to find the most expensive service for you, due to the commission being a percentage of the overall charge and not a percentage of the saving.
For example: a restaurant currently has its extraction system annually cleaned and maintained, and pays a local service engineer a fee of £300. BIG recommends a trusted associate member who charges a fee of £200, which creates a saving of £100. This cost saving is then split between the restaurant and BIG, so the restaurant receives a saving of £50.
The more we save, the better for both parties.
The BIG model
You will be assigned your own dedicated Account Manager who will conduct a full business improvement appraisal, covering the following:
- Health & Safety assessment
- Fire Risk assessment
- Business continuity planning (disaster recovery)
- Independent insurance appraisal
- Products and services costing appraisal
- Brand and marketing strategy
Your Account Manager will then set out a 12 month plan, by the end of which you will gain a full written Health and Safety policy, a Fire Risk assessment, disaster recovery plan, and access to full human resources specialists.
All this is included in your annual membership – and it’s already worth more than the annual fee you pay!
