Clearent Named a Top Workplace in St. Louis


Payment solutions provider receives high marks from employees in Post-Dispatch survey

Clearent, a full-service payments solution provider, has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by Energage (formerly Workplace Dynamics), a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution and connection. This is the third-consecutive year Clearent has received this recognition.

"Top Workplaces is more than just recognition," said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. "Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement."

Clearent employs 150 team members at its St. Louis headquarters and an additional 250 employees at offices in West Palm Beach, Florida, and Louisville, Kentucky, as well as at its recently acquired subsidiary – Draper, Utah, -based SPOT Business Systems, LLC. The company offers competitive compensation and benefits packages and strives to provide a fun, family-style atmosphere and collaborative, results-oriented work environment.

"We are honored to once again be recognized as Top Workplace," said Dan Geraty, CEO of Clearent. "We constantly strive to provide a work environment that allows our employees to excel and the resources that enable them to succeed. It is gratifying our employees continue to recognize the efforts we make as a company to foster such a positive environment."

As a company, Clearent has steadily grown its customer base organically, as well as through acquisition. In 2017, the company acquired the Merchant Services Division of Payment Alliance International (PAI), and in 2018 it acquired independent software vendor SPOT Business Systems, LLC. The company has consistently been named to several prestigious lists in recent years, including multiple inclusions in the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies and the Nilson Report's list of top U.S. Acquirers, among others.
