Your Help Is Needed: Take Digital Technology Trends Survey

The Shakopee Chamber of Commerce is conducting a special project in partnership with the Minnesota Chamber’s Grow MN! program to identify a.) how digital technologies are impacting business recovery and growth performance, and b.) what type of resources Minnesota could offer to help small-to-medium sized businesses better compete in the digital economy. We think this is an important component of Minnesota’s short term recovery and long term economic growth.
We are asking for your help by completing this survey that will provide critical insights on this topic and help drive actions to better support small and medium size businesses in Minnesota.

The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. The survey is anonymous and results will only be reported at an aggregate level.
Reducing Risk In The Workplace: A New Solution For Retirement Planning

Thursday, July 29
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
The Minnesota Chamber can help your business! Offering your employees benefits makes your business competitive. But benefits can be expensive. Pooled Employer Plans (PEPs) are retirement plans that bring down cost by allowing multiple employers to participate. These plans help streamline administration and allow for better investment access for smaller businesses that was previously only achievable for large-scale employers. Sign up for this webinar hosted by the Minnesota Chamber and learn more about this latest alternative to an important employee benefit.

Head to Downtown Shakopee THIS WEDNESDAY for live music, tasty food, cold beer, and fun for the whole family.
