One thing we are very proud of here at American Profit Recovery is our educated team. No, not everyone has PhD here, but every one of our staff understands their job, the collection industry and their role in helping both business and consumer. If our team members are not off site keeping up to date on everything we need to understand in the collection industry, we are always reinforcing best practices here in our office. In fact, it’s a daily occurrence.

Education is part of our culture and that makes American Profit Recovery a great place to work and one of the best collection agencies for a small business to use.

Because we believe so much in education, our team participates in the annual Collector’s Challenge. Spearheaded by the ACA International Education Foundation, the Collectors Challenge helps raise funds to assist in the advance of education for those in or affiliated with the collection industry.

The Foundation offers the annual Loomer-Mortenson Scholarships as a result of funds raised through the annual Collectors Challenge held each April.

This year, our team raised over $1,500 for the Foundation. That brings our ten year total to over $17,000. And each year, we raise it by having fun in the office. We have fun here anyway but we bring up another level when we are raising money for great causes. Our team participated in putting contests, our March Madness brackets, and of course everyone pays to dress casual in the office.

New this year was our paper airplane contest. Team members could pay for a piece of card stock they then turned into a paper airplane. The airplane that went the most distance earned that staff member an Amazon gift card.

Stay tuned to our Facebook page and our blog to see where our team ends up next to raise money and help others.
