The team here at American Profit Recovery always takes time to ring in the holiday season. Working in the debt collection industry is fast-paced, and sometimes challenging and it is important for this organization to ensure the entire team gets a chance to experience everything this season has to offer.
It has been a long tradition here to have many opportunities to celebrate the holidays. It is important as an organization to have this as part of our culture and values.
Over the past month, the team has celebrated this season and a year’s worth of individual and team accomplishments.
Celebrating the holidays begins by serving others
Serving the communities we live in and helping those in need has been a foundation of our culture here at American Profit Recovery. At several points during the year our team is either raising money or volunteering their time to better the community.
During the holidays, we emphasize the community. This year, once again we conducted our Adopt a Family program. Working with local agencies, our team provided Christmas presents for two area families. We were able to purchase these gifts from money raised during the year. And several of our team members go out and purchase these gifts on their own. We are proud to say that we have made a difference in many lives through our Adopt a Family program over the years.
We also conducted our veteran’s coat drive again this past season. This year, this annual event collected over 150 needed items for veterans. Those items include basic clothing, coats, and personal care products. Many of our team members have veterans and their families so this one rings close to home.
Celebrating our team members during the holiday season
Once we take care of our community, it’s important for our team to celebrate with each other and to take a step back from our fast-paced environment.
It all started with our office decorations, making The APR offices a holiday destination for our team. Our CSR team turned every square inch turned into a winter wonderland. Spearheaded by our customer service team and Meka, our customer service pro, they turned our offices into the North Pole!
And let’s not forget our hot chocolate bar, also provided by Meka!
The American Profit Recovery team took over Dave & Buster’s for our annual holiday party. Once we devoured some incredible Italian food for lunch, everyone got their game on. Cards loaded up with unlimited playing time took us through the afternoon bringing many of us back to our childhood video game-playing days.
And of course, it wouldn’t be the holidays without a good old-fashioned Yankee swap. Dozens of our employees participated, and as always, a good source for much-needed humor and laughing.
We hope your organization has taken time to enjoy this holiday season and celebrate your team member’s contributions. We have a great team of dedicated employees, and it is important for us as an organization to celebrate the holidays with them.
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year from everyone here at American Profit Recovery!
