American Profit Recovery was one of a handful of great collection agencies that took part in this year’s Collectors Challenge to raise money for some important programs. Money raised through these efforts is put towards the Loomer-Mortenson Scholarship program that helps further the education of those in the collection industry.  You can learn more about the program here.  

You may have an impression of collection agencies that only involves a bunch of people in a dark room making phone calls all day. Not here…We have fun every day and we turn the business of raising money for these program into even more fun.

Here’s a few things we did around the office to raise almost $1,800 for these programs.

First we held our annual March Madness brackets. And while many companies might do this, a portion of our money goes to this important cause. We also held just about our favorite way of raising money and that’s paying for the option to dress casual in the office. Over the years we have raised a ton of money for all our charitable endeavors through dressing casual.

Our third way of raising money was through our egg hunt in the office. Our team hid over 500 eggs in the office and all contained various prizes from candy all the way up to gift cards and other great prizes. And we ended our efforts with a classic putt to win competition in the office. Competitors had to make a 75 foot golf putt across the office and our winner won pizza every week for a month.

While helping our clients get paid the money they are owed is serious business, we make sure our team has fun while doing it. Having time to laugh in and out of the office as well as the mission of helping others is what we feel make this a different kind of collection agency as well as a great place to work.
