SALT LAKE CITY--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Progrexion – a leading provider of credit report repair services for consumers in the U.S. – celebrated an important year of growth and giving in 2016. The end of 2016 marked the five-year anniversary of Progrexion’s corporate giving initiatives, where its offices in Utah, Idaho, Arizona and Oklahoma gave back to their respective communities.
“We have been privileged to help families across the nation by donating blood, employee time and funds to expand our reach and bless the lives of as many people as we can. There is no doubt in my mind that our community outreach and support has contributed to our growth.”
Progrexion has been around for about 17 years and has become an employer of choice due to its care for employees. The hiring and retention philosophy centers around the idea of hiring for the long term by providing each employee with the tools for not only reaching, but also exceeding potential.
“Progrexion has seen tremendous growth in the last several years,” said Progrexion president and chief operating officer Michael DeVico. “We opened a new site in Oklahoma in 2016 and now employ more than 2,000 dedicated employees. Progrexion has seen great success this year and we attribute that to our employees who have spent countless hours providing top-level service to customers as well as those in need.”
Progrexion retains a corporate culture that inspires employees to help others by participating in various giving programs held throughout the year. 2016 marked the fifth anniversary of Progrexion’s giving programs and included programs like quarterly blood drives and an annual food drive where employees gathered food and cash donations and donated to food banks and shelters local to each office. Other programs included Relays for Life and Bowl for Kids’ Sake, a mentor program with Big Brothers Big Sisters.
“Our company is based on helping other people achieve their goals, so we naturally want to help our communities around us,” said Jeff Johnson, Progrexion CEO. “We have been privileged to help families across the nation by donating blood, employee time and funds to expand our reach and bless the lives of as many people as we can. There is no doubt in my mind that our community outreach and support has contributed to our growth.”
