No Suits, Just Innovation
Innovation is an important part of being a team member at Billhighway, which is no surprise — innovation is exactly how the company grew from humble beginnings (in a cramped apartment on the campus of Eastern Michigan University) to where it is today: a powerful financial management powerhouse transacting over $1B in membership dues for chapter organizations. And, when it comes to innovation for team members, workspaces outfitted with portable elliptical machines, standup desks, yoga balls, free snacks, and a café stocked with a variety of rec room games are just the tip of the iceberg…
Beyond the many perks, this is a company that gives its team members a host of opportunities for learning and career growth. The certification program, which gives team members new skills, is a win-win: team members earn pay increases while Billhighway strengthens its workforce.
An innovative Client Care Career program pairs entry-level team members with a cross-functional team so that they can build the skills that will get them to where they want to be. The Billhighway University gives team members a plethora of skills, leadership and professional development options. Pair these opportunities with guidance from a mentor through the in-house mentorship program, and Billhighway team members are on their way to success.
Going the extra mile for customers is a way of life for Billhighway: the CC365 Play, for example, requires a strong commitment from each and every team member. In return, Billhighway goes above and beyond for them. Brenda Gallick, Director of Team Member Success, shares,
We come to work every day and push the limits for a purpose: we are on a mission to help our clients, our community and each other do more, create more impact and grow more. This shared sense of purpose and working towards the same goal, allows us to make an impact faster and in a meaningful way.
