Flagship Credit Acceptance announced today it has earned the Great Place To Work® certification for the second consecutive year. Great Place To Work recognizes businesses that have established a corporate culture built on trust and inclusion to promote company pride. The organization helps companies create compelling employer brands by conducting anonymous associate surveys based on Great Place To Work’s research-backed Trust Index.
A majority of associates, 93 percent of respondents, said Flagship has done an excellent job of providing awareness programs that promote diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace. An overwhelming 95 percent of associates also reported that Flagship is a physically safe place to work, and 89 percent of associates replied Flagship is a great place to work.
This year’s survey focused on diversity and inclusion and reported meaningful increases in several key categories. There was a seven percentage point increase to 88% in responses that stated management involves people in the decisions that affect their jobs or work environment. The number of associates that said Flagship celebrates the people who try new and better ways of doing things, regardless of the outcome, increased by six percentage points to 79% of associates. There was also a four percentage point increase in the number of associates who stated they want to work for the company long term, as well as by associates indicating that management demonstrates appreciation for good work and extra effort.
“We are very pleased our associates’ responses affirm our belief that a safe, inclusive, equitable and diverse culture promotes collaboration and empowers associates to reach their full potential,” stated Jeff Haymore, President and Chief Operating Officer at Flagship. “We have carefully cultivated one of the best and most inclusive cultures in our industry. It is very gratifying to see our associates appreciate that environment and value working at Flagship.”
In 2020, Flagship introduced a Diversity and Inclusion Council that fosters an inclusive workforce and environment that respects each associate’s unique perspective, beliefs and opinions regardless of their role and tenure. The corporate culture also encourages associates to engage with the broader community by providing volunteer time off, supporting local and national nonprofit and charity organizations, hosting annual food drives and conducting other activities to support the community and those in need.
