High Job Satisfaction for Collection Agents
Encore Capital Group has been named one of the top 50 places to work . . . in India. The San Diego-based company “is a recognized leader in distressed consumer debt buying and recovery,” per a statement on their website. Aside from San Diego, the firm has three other U.S. offices, a network of independent collection agencies, and “a large offshore facility in New Delhi, India.”
The Great Place to Work Institute surveys employee satisfaction in 40 countries, including the U.S., where its results are featured in Fortune Magazine. They ranked Encore’s offshore collection agents and other staff 37th happiest out of 480 companies surveyed. The facility employs 1149 of Encore’s total staff of “more than 1700 people.”
Indian affiliates of Google, Intel, and American Express also ranked highly — finishing 1st, 2nd, and 4th in voting, respectively.
