    This sounds like an advertising slogan or a tag line for a company,
    but it is not a complete sentence.

    Do you mean fragment?
    Could you show me the complete sentence please?

    Of course, it could be a complete sentence if "helping" was used as an adjective, like:
    "Participating companies improve individual and organizational performance."
