Government Employees Marketplace Offers Discounts for Municipal Employees


Shapiro, Marc, Nation's Cities Weekly


NLC is pleased to announce its sponsorship of the Government Employees Marketplace (GEM), a value-added service for cities and towns to offer employees and retirees. GEM provides a convenient one-stop website (www.govmarket.org) for employees and retirees to access special volume discounts on a variety of brand name goods and services for personal use.

With many cities unable to offer salary increases or new or extended benefits, GEM is a service that can save employees money on theft everyday purchasing. The role of the city is to promote the program to employees through the city intranet or internal website, employee newsletters, bulletin boards and other communications. There is no cost for a city to participate in the GEM program.

There is also no cost for city employees to join GEM and no membership fees or minimum purchasing requirements. By joining GEM, employees can receive special promotions, seasonal sales and other discounts on thousands of brand name products.

Companies such as Dell Computers, Sprint, Hertz and Office Depot and others also offer exclusive savings to GEM members. With the exclusive Sprint deal, GEM members can save 15 percent off of their monthly cell phone bill.

GEM also includes local features with information on gas prices, groceries, dining reservations and girl cards. …
