Who This Is For

If you are a home improvement contractor or business owner with more than 10 employees who wants:

  • to deliver quality work and win more business
  • to become a "big-time contractor" in your area and gain the respect of your family, friends, and community
  • ​to be able to pay employees their wages and manage cashflow (despite the economic downtrend)
  • wants to have more time in the day to manage projects and grow your business 

...then this is for you!

Core Concept

Here is the truth: you can double your profit in less than 12 months if you do three things:
1) Boost employee productivity and engagement
2) Reduce days of employee absenteeism
3) Reduce employee churn
Most contractors are not aware of this (we’ve asked around). To solve this problem, HealthSapiens has pioneered a one-of-a-kind program aimed at helping home improvement contractors and small businesses.
  • Our program has been proven to help increase profits, increase productivity, and increase employee retention
  • We are the only company of our kind dedicated to solving this particular problem for home improvement contractors and small business owners

Who Are We?

  • Founded in 2016, we have helped more than 30,000 people improve their productivity, health, and profitability (including many contractors)
  • HealthSapiens was voted the “Best Subscription Service for Online Doctors” by Consumer's Advocate in 2020 and again in 2021
  • We have been featured on Top10.com, in the New York Times, Healthcare NOW Radio (and more)

30,000 Helped (and Counting...)

Background Story

  • In 2016, I took my daughter to the Emergency Room when she wasn’t feeling well
  • ​I had a full-blown health insurance plan, but my daughter’s Pediatrician wasn’t available
  • ​After 6 hours of waiting, I was told the issue wasn’t an emergency, it was “all in my head” and we were sent home (after a $1,500 E.R. bill)

Hard Lessons I Learned...

  • Having health insurance doesn’t guarantee access to a doctor when you need one the most
  • 70% of emergency visitors are unnecessary
    Most people go to the E.R. because they don’t have access to a doctor and not because they’re having an emergency
I realized that had a doctor been available, the whole mess could have been avoided -- and I would have had $1,500 extra in my pocket

…And thus: HealthSapiens was born.

  • As a serial entrepreneur and board member for numerous companies, I understand the frustrations, trials, and tribulations that come along with running a successful company and optimizing output
  • I’ve been in the trenches, I’ve gotten my hands dirty, I’ve been around the block as a business-owner
  • ​I have seen what does and doesn’t work when it comes to improving a company’s bottom line

So...how can we boost our bottom line?

Traditionally, there were 3 ways most companies would consider in order to increase profits. The problem is, each has their own associated costs and hassle.
  • Hire more employees
  • ​Replace churned employees
  • ​Reduce employee sick days
I'll dig into each of these now -- what you learn might surprise you...

Method 1 To Boost Profits: Hire more employees

Old Way

Hiring more employees to win (and execute) more contracts involves posting ads, hiring headhunters, locating and interviewing suitable workers, and going in circles until finding the right candidate(s).

Old Result

It takes on average 52 days to fill a position and costs around $4000 to hire a new employee (not including additional costs related to training and integration)

New Way

Instantly provide employees with virtual 24/7 access to doctors to keep them healthy and boost productivity: Work with your existing employees!

New Result

10% increase in staff productivity over 6 months translates to an increase in profit by 40-100%.

The Facts

  • According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average American works 8.8 hours every day.
    A study of nearly 2,000 full-time workers revealed that most people aren't actually “working” within those hours on the job
  • Salaried or hourly paid employees are operating at 50-60% capacity.
    A 10-15% increase in employees’ productivity translates to an output increase and revenue increase without the added costs associated with hiring more employees.
  • A company can increase its profit by 40-100% by improving employee productivity by just 10%.
    This results in high efficiency and minimizes time and effort training new staff
  • ​If your net margins are 10%, then a 10% increase in revenue (with no added cost) will double your profit.

The Relationship Between Productivity And Profit

This chart shows that even a slight percentage of employees’ productivity could have a meaningful impact on company profitability. Most companies are paying for 8 hours of effort per day, but are only getting 4 hours of actual output (50% productivity). By increasing real output by 5%, profitability can jump by 50% (or more)

The Most Popular Unproductive Activities By Employees Each Day Include…

This adds up to over 5 hours per day per employee

If you think your employees are giving you 8 hours of net productivity, think again...

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, most people aren’t actually “working” within those hours on the job.

Most employees are operating at 50-60% productivity, and therefore an increase of 10% in productivity is very easy to achieve if they are properly engaged/incentivized.

Method 2 To Boost Profit: Replace churned employees

Old Way

  • Constant setbacks and fire drills while spending 10+ hours per week looking to replace employees who left
  • ​Spend (on average) 23.5 hours to review applicants, 4 hours to pre-screen them, and 1.5 hours for interviews & prep
  • Time-consuming paperwork and back-and-forth

Old Result

  • It costs as much as 33% of a worker’s annual salary to find, train and integrate an employee, at an average cost of $15,000 per employee
  • ​Employee morale is low due to high turnover
  • Enormous amount of energy spent replacing those who left instead of focusing on growing the business and managing existing customers

New Way

Retain your high-performing employees via added benefits (go Benefits “Light”)

New Result

  • Employees are more productive
  • Employees feel their employer cares about them and their families (leading to reduced churn)

 Insight

Reducing employee churn can lead to a significant decrease of costs, better work environment, and increase revenue.

Myth

“My industry has a high turnover rate so there is no way it can be prevented”

Reality

It has been proven that focusing on existing employees and minimizing churn allows you to retain employees and retain them for longer. The longer the employee stays, the lower the likelihood of them quitting.

Method 3 to Boost Profit: Manage Unexpected Employee Sick Days

Old Way

Constant morning drills having to deal with a bunch of employees not showing up on the job site

Old Result

Employees constantly skipping days of work to tend to their or their families’ health when getting sick.

New Way

Offer employees virtual 24/7 access to doctors to allow convenient access to medical care for them and their families.

New Result

Save at least 2 sick days per employee per year.

Statistic

According to Circadian, unscheduled absenteeism costs roughly $3,600 per year for each hourly worker and $2,660 each year for salaried employees.

Insight

Reducing an employee’s sick days leads to major cost savings and increased output per employee, ultimately leading to higher company revenue. 
The CDC Foundation has recently-published a report relating how worker illness and injury costs US employers $225.8 billion annually.  
Source: https://www.cdcfoundation.org/pr/2015/worker-illness-and-injury-costs-us-employers-225-billion-annually

In Summary

As you can see, by simply improving your employees’ productivity, reducing employee churn, and managing employees’ unexpected sick days, you could DOUBLE your net income in 1 year (or less)

It's as simple as this:

  • Boost employee productivity by 10%
  • Reduce churn
  • Reduce employee sick days

So...what are your options?

Option 1: Offer employee health insurance benefits

This option is costly and ineffective (while also draining resources). You can expect to pay $7,000 or more per employee per year, and it can take weeks (or months) to get it finalized.   

Option 2: Replace lost employees

This option is costly and time-consuming. You can expect to pay $4,000 or more per employee to hire along with a 10% increase in payroll. Plus, it takes an average of 52 days to find and hire a new employee.  

Option 3: Continually hunt for new employees

This option is costly and decreases profitability. You can expect to pay $15,000 or more per employee, and like option 2, it takes an average of 52 days to find and hire your new employee.

Option 4 (The Better Option)

Instead of dealing with the hassle and costs of finding employees or offering health insurance benefits, you could just use HealthSapiens to achieve a 100% increase in net income in less than a year (for 1/100th of the price of alternative methods).

Again, this is for home improvement contractors and businesses with at least 10 employees who are trying to win more customers and significantly boost profits...

Here's how Montessori Remodeling was able to double their profits working with HealthSapiens...

  • Your employees and their families will have improved health and productivity, resulting in higher revenues (without incurring massive costs, like with health insurance plans)

Over 30,000 (and counting) have benefited from the power of HealthSapiens (and so can you)

We at HealthSapiens feel our solution is simply easier, faster, and better than any other alternative when it comes to substantially increasing profits for home improvement contractors and businesses with at least 10 employees

So...How Does It Work?

Before

When you wanted to improve productivity and retention you would enroll your employees into a health insurance plan, which involves:
  • Heavy research on what’s out there (insurance is a very confusing product)
  • ​Seeking a quote from an insurance broker
  • ​Getting and reviewing the quote
  • ​Enrolling in an insurance plan

Result

Very costly process. It takes 45-60 days to enroll in a plan and costs on average $7,000 per employee per year

But Now...

You can simply send us a spreadsheet with your employees’ names and basic contact info:
  • Email us your enrollment spreadsheet with just a few mouse clicks
  • ​All your employees are enrolled in our plan right away

Result

All your employees and their families have instant access to doctors 24/7. Employee morale increases, and employee productivity increases... all for a fraction of the cost of an insurance policy.
We do not hurt your bottom line, unlike costly health insurance plans
Enrolling your employees takes only a few minutes and a few clicks of a mouse. Simply email us a spreadsheet of your employees and we can get them enrolled immediately.

Before

When you wanted to deal with costly absenteeism and frequent lack of attendance without valid cause, you had to:
  • Create a lengthy employee attendance policy
  • ​Enforce your attendance policy
  • ​Keep track of employee absences
  • ​Address no-shows right away
  • ​Discover the causes of absence
  • ​Seek replacements to fill the gap

Result

A very bureaucratic process, not to mention costly, human resource-heavy, and very distracting. This could cost you upwards of $3,000 per employee (per year) – and that’s before opportunity cost is factored in.

But Now...

Your employees can simply call or video chat with one of our doctors anytime for help with health-related matters.
  • Our doctors are available and on standby 24/7
  • It takes on average 12 minutes to connect with one of our doctors

Result

  • Employees avoid wasting time booking appointments with doctors
  • Employees are not missing a half-day or full day of work by having to go to a doctor’s office
  • ​Employees are more productive and grateful (and have less chance of getting the rest of your employees sick)
  • ​Speak with a licensed, board-certified U.S. doctor within minutes (not days or weeks)
  • ​Speak with a doctor by phone or video chat on almost any device
  • Prescriptions sent to member's preferred pharmacy

  • Easily update and export health records
  • ​Easily add family members
  • ​Request remote doctor appointments with a few clicks of a mouse

Resource

We built a calculator to help business owners see how much they can save per year by offering HealthSapiens plans for employees. The chart here shows an example of the savings.

Offering HealthSapiens not only is good for your business and bottom line, but also is great for your employees. See how much your employees will stand to save by using HealthSapiens.

What's The Next Step?

Here is the catch:

If you wanted to double your net income using “the old ways”, it would cost you a significant amount of time and money (depending on the size of your company).
For a company with 20 employees, that figure comes out to around $140,000 (per year)....ouch.

The better option: HealthSapiens

HealthSapiens is priced at less than 5% of that amount.
Instead of paying $7,000 per year per employee, that means you’re able to go Benefits “Light” with HealthSapiens and offer our telehealth solution to your employees for a minuscule fraction of the cost of health insurance.

But the price won't remain this low forever...
