Bergstrom Inc. adds workplace chaplaincy service to employee benefits package

August 3, 2018

Bergstrom Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of cab climate systems for commercial trucks, off-highway machines, military vehicles, specialty vehicles and niche automotive markets, has added an innovative employee perk to its benefits package – a workplace chaplain.

The new employee care service, which will be provided through a Dallas-based workplace chaplaincy provider called Marketplace Chaplains, is available for free to all Bergstrom employees and family members.

Much like military or hospital chaplains, workplace chaplains offer counseling to those in need – they just do it in the workplace. The caregivers perform dozens of services ranging from crisis intervention to workplace consultation, hospital visits, weddings and funerals, all at no cost to the individual employee or their family member.

"Providing this service to our employees just makes sense,” said Bergstrom President and CEO Jack Shaffer. "Our employees are our biggest business asset, so we want them to be as happy and healthy as possible. This is one way of showing our team members that we truly care about their health and the health of their families.”

Marketplace Chaplains was founded by former Baptist General Convention of Texas employee and military chaplain Gil Stricklin. It includes more than 2,800 chaplains serving in 46 states and six countries working with countless different types of businesses and organizations, including factory settings, warehouse floors and corporate offices.
