Clearent has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Post-Dispatch. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
Clearent has more than 300 employees, over 100 of which it added last spring with the acquisition of Payment Alliance International’s (PAI) Merchant Services Division. The company strives to offer competitive compensation and benefits as well as a collaborative and results-oriented work environment.
“My time with Clearent has proven to me that when a company takes the time and effort to invest in its employees, anything is possible,” said Sr. Customer Service Analyst Rosa Garcia. “I am empowered to do my best and given the resources I need to succeed. There’s no doubt in my mind that Clearent will find itself on this list year after year by continuing to foster such a positive environment!”
The company’s management team takes employee feedback to heart and encourages employees to answer surveys openly and honestly. “We highly value the feedback we receive from the survey and see it as an opportunity to learn and grow based on what our employees not only enjoy about Clearent, but also what they may need or want from us,” said Melinda Vedder, Senior Vice President of Human Resources. “The survey isn’t just about making a list, it’s about making Clearent stronger and a better place to work.”
