From the President
Keeping trained and talented employees is an issue for all businesses, and retention is perhaps more complicated for new hires and people in their 20s or 30s. Some businesses are getting creative in ways to keep these employees "sticky" and part of the team. For many in this age group, student loan repayment is a higher priority than contributions to 401(k) retirement plans. 

The $12 Billion Scam
A Public Service Announcement from the FBI
In partnership with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce urges you to review the resources shared here in efforts to keep yourself, your employees, and your business safe.

The Business E-mail Compromise (BEC)/E-mail Account Compromise (EAC) is a sophisticated scam targeting both businesses and individuals performing wire transfer payments. This scam continues to grow and evolve, targeting small, medium, and large business and personal transactions. Between December 2016 and May 2018, there was a 136% increase in identified global exposed losses. The scam has been reported in all 50 states and in 150 countries.

If you think your business has been a target of this scam, contact the Baltimore Field Office, which covers all of Delaware and Maryland, at 410-265-8080.
