PRA Group Announces 13 Winners of $35,000 Vaccine Lottery
NORFOLK, VA – PRA Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: PRAA), a global leader in acquiring and collecting nonperforming loans, has announced the winners of its company-wide $35,000 vaccine lottery. In an effort to encourage employees to get vaccinated, the company held a vaccine clinic in partnership with Sentara Healthcare in August and launched a lottery that would be open to all vaccinated US workers if its US employee base achieved at least 250 additional vaccinations.
Having reached its target, PRA Group selected 13 winners across the company’s employee base to receive a portion of the gift, which included two $10,000 cash prizes and one $5,000 prize. The remaining 10 prizes could be cashed in at $1,000 or used as a week of paid time off, based on each recipient’s preference. Kevin Stevenson, president and CEO of PRA Group, called each winner individually to congratulate them and thank them for their role in making the company a safer place.
One of the winners, Dynishia Terry, reflects, “I’ve had quite the journey with PRA Group, from working in the Birmingham Regional Office to teleworking as a senior specialist with the disputes team. Through everything, it has been clear to me that we take care of our people. I am feeling incredibly lucky and grateful to my colleagues for making vaccinations a priority.”
In 2020, PRA Group achieved Global Biorisk Advisory Council’s STAR™ accreditation (GBAC STAR), indicating its high standards for cleaning, disinfection and infectious disease prevention. The company remains committed to health and safety excellence as the pandemic continues.
That’s why, in addition to the individual winners, PRA Group will host a ‘thank you’ lunch for the sites with the highest percentage of vaccinated team members: Schaumburg, Ill., Conshohocken, Pa., and the Norfolk, Va., call center.
