today announced the winners of the fifth annual Best Places to Work in Collections. This award program is designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best places of employment in the accounts receivable management (ARM) industry, and was created and facilitated by and Best Companies Group.

“We are thrilled to shine the light on companies doing things right,” said Stephanie Eidelman, President & Publisher of “Maintaining a great workplace is a challenge in any industry; in collections it can be particularly difficult. For employees, having a job is critical — but having a job where one feels valued and engaged is far more powerful, productive, and lasting. This, of course, pays dividends to the company as well.”

Companies from across the country entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Collections 2012. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration, survey and analysis process and determined the final rankings.

“We sincerely thank all of the ARM firms that participated in the program,” said Eidelman. “They underwent a rigorous evaluation process, ensuring that the winning companies are truly succeeding in their efforts to provide a challenging, satisfying, and motivating work environment for their employees.”
