State Collection Service Awarded National Industry Recognition
Healthcare receivables leader named one of 2016's Best Places to Work
Madison, WI – State Collection Service, Inc., a full-service accounts receivable management solutions provider, is proud to announce its recent selection as one of the Best Places to Work in Collections for 2016. This year, only eight large companies (150+ employees) met the standard to be selected.
“Being honored as a Best Place to Work in Collections is something that makes us all extremely proud. We continue to work hard to ensure all of our employees enjoy coming in to work each day – we know that when our employees are happy, our clients and their patients reap the benefits,” commented State Collection Service President, Terry Armstrong.
State Collection Service was founded in 1949 by Hilding Haag. It remains a family-owned corporation today, with Hilding’s son, Tom, serving as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. Under Tom’s leadership, the company has grown significantly while retaining the family values that form the basis of the company’s corporate culture. “Being a family company is something we have always taken pride in – the fact that our employees feel like they belong to this family makes us even prouder of the environment we have worked so hard to create,” added Tim Haag, Vice President of Support Services and third-generation leader. “Challenging ourselves to continue enhancing our workplace is something we genuinely look forward to.”
The survey and award program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in the collections industry. Now in its 9th year, the program was established by insideARM, the leading independent news and information provider for the collections industry, and is administered by Best Companies Group, which conducts over 40 local, national and industry “Best Places” programs each year. Companies from across the U.S. entered the rigorous two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Collections. The evaluation consists of a review of each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics as well as an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.
Stephanie Eidelman, CEO of insideARM, said “This has been a terrific program for the industry over the past nine years. It’s so important to celebrate what’s positive and acknowledge that – just like any other industry – collections is comprised of human beings who value connection, opportunity for advancement, healthy company culture, and a good relationship with their supervisor. Getting this right can help make the difference between high and low turnover, which is so critical to the success of any call center.”
In addition to being recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in Collections, State Collection Service has also been named to the Inc. 5000 list of America’s Fastest Growing Companies, has been named a Wisconsin Family Business of the Year winner, and has been often recognized for its use of advanced technologies including speech analytics for enhanced call performance.
