Meanwhile, Flagship Credit Acceptance recently announced it has been certified as a Great Place to Work, a program that acknowledges companies that have established a documented excellent workplace culture and is based on anonymous associate responses to the Trust Index survey.
The company indicated a majority of Flagship’s 850 associates responded to the survey. Out of the responses, 89% of associates stated Flagship is a great place to work, compared to 59% of employees at other U.S.-based companies.
Additionally, 92% of respondents said they felt welcomed when they joined the company. And even more importantly, 91% of associates responded they were provided with the resources and equipment to be successful, and 90% stated they were able to take time off when they felt it was necessary.
“Our belief is that a diverse and inclusive culture that is uplifting and supportive is the backbone to enabling our associates to perform at their best,” Flagship chief executive officer Bob Hurzeler said in a news release.
“By creating a supportive culture that our associates want to be a part of, we ensure they provide first-class service to each of our customers,” Hurzeler continued.
As part of Flagship’s corporate culture, the company highlighted that it provides associates with volunteer time off, supports local and national nonprofits and charities, and more recently has supported the Boys and Girls Club of Chester, Pa., with a food drive to support families impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
