NAPERVILLE, IL (May 31, 2017) – BluePay, a leader in the payment processing industry focused on secure integrated payment technology, has been announced as a Gold Winner in the prestigious Pillar® World Awards for Employer of the Year and Corporate Milestone of the Year. The coveted annual Pillar® World Awards is the premier awards program honoring the best employers worldwide.

As part of the SVUS Awards (Silicon Valley United States), the Pillar World Awards are an annual recognition program honoring employees and companies of all types and sizes throughout North America, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America. They were created to honor and generate industry-wide recognition of employers’ achievements and contributions.

BluePay’s dedication to professional and personal growth, along with its commitment to serving its community, earned the company Gold honors for Employer of the Year. BluePay aims to build a strong team spirit and values the diversity of backgrounds and opinions. Through off-site conferences, recurring cross-training meetings, or online webinars, training is offered to each department from entry-level up to C-level. Additionally, the company implemented a charitable giving program, which includes paid time off for volunteering opportunities, along with company matching for monetary contributions. BluePay is a regular supporter of Chicagoland Susan G. Komen for the Cure Program and the Wounded Warrior Project.

Bala Janakiraman, Chief Executive Officer at BluePay, said, “It’s truly an honor to be named a Gold Winner by the Pillar® World Awards for this esteemed industry and peer recognition. We believe our team members are our greatest resource in accomplishing our objectives, and we grow our team by hiring the best performers, while continuing to provide career coaching opportunities to help our employees reach their goals. We encourage participation in company activities that improve the quality of life for our team members and our community.”

As part of its overall business strategy, BluePay focuses on growth in its partnership channel and continuously improving its Net Promoter Score (NPS). In 2016, the partner team reached a new milestone by improving its NPS 110 percent and increasing its network of new partnerships by 211 percent year-over-year. These achievements merited BluePay a Gold Pillar Award for Corporate Milestone of the Year.

There are many components of BluePay’s dynamic partner program that were instrumental in reaching this milestone, including a dedicated Partner Support Team with a direct toll-free phone number and support email; a fast and frictionless partner onboarding process; knowledgeable account relationship managers; and the annual partner community event for in-person networking and educational opportunities.

Jay Ablian, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Partnerships at BluePay, said, “Winning a Gold Pillar Award is a testament to our commitment to creating more value for our partners through our industry-leading payment solutions.
