Credit Bureau Services, LLC (CBS), a local collections and credit reporting agency, has been named one of the Top-10 Innovative Agencies in America by Collection Advisor Magazine for its integration of the Facebook Live platform with its services. The publication states that this award was voted on by the readers of the magazine as well as the company’s peers and industry activists. Credit Bureau Services was the only agency selected that is owned and operated by a female CEO.

With the assistance of a local social media marketing firm, Media Leaf, LLC, CBS has a reach of over 4,000 people organically with every post it makes. This helps the promotion efforts of its many clients by giving them a chance to speak to a wide audience about the products and services they offer. CBS also regularly posts its own Facebook Live content to keep clients and consumers in tune with the future of the company. The positive reception to these Facebook Live posts has also opened up the opportunity for CBS to provide another avenue of customer service to its clients via “The Bureau Tribe” section of the company’s Facebook page. Clients can now post a question regarding their accounts receivables challenges, and CBS will provide a timely response to all inquiries.

Credit Bureau Services, LLC’s innovative practices are a testament to the strong efforts of local business owners as the economic landscape in Southeast Missouri and the surrounding area continues to grow. Their client and consumer-first attitude is the most important aspect of their business approach as they strive to lessen the stress accounts receivables challenges can cause for both businesses and consumers alike.

October Unemployment Numbers

The latest statistics are out and Cape Girardeau is at or below record numbers for our area.

We recently received October unemployment numbers - as they tend to run about 30 days behind. According to the Missouri Economic Research and Information Center (MERIC), Cape County has a 1.9% unemployment rate. We have a workforce of 40,925 and 40,135 of them are working. Scott County's unemployment rate has dropped to 2.4% and Perry County is at 1.7%.

We understand the discussion concerning the accuracy of defining the workforce for the purpose of determining unemployment. We also understand this number says nothing of underemployment. However, this process is consistent, so the comparisons are valid for drawing some conclusions. These numbers support what we’ve heard from our local businesses - the labor market is tight and getting tighter.

One side effect of a tight labor market is increased wages. Employers tell us this is a very real situation in the Cape / Jackson metro. While this is good for workers, it may bring challenges for employers. As we continue to monitor the health of our local economy, one area we will be keeping a close eye on is inflation.

In addition, at the Chamber, we continue to focus on making sure our youth understand all available options upon graduation from high school through programs like connectCAPE. In the coming year, we will also continue to enhance our website, www.capeishome.com, as we ramp up the recruitment of people to our area.
