Synchrony Financial has opened a second location in Central Florida and affirmed its local commitment with a $1 million donation to the Step Up for Students scholarship program. Synchrony Financial has been in the Orlando area since 1983. Its original location in Longwood is a customer support site.
The company’s second Florida location, in Altamonte Springs, will provide customer service and collections support across all of Synchrony Financial’s business platforms. The 102,000 square-foot space features training and conference rooms with advanced technologies including telepresence capabilities, an on-site dining venue and employee fitness center. Plans are already underway, meanwhile, to expand into an adjacent 25,000 square-foot building in 2017 that will accommodate more employees.
Arnsperger and other Synchrony Financial officials also presented a check today for $1 million to the Step Up for Students scholarship program for financially-disadvantaged children.
The donation marks the first time that Synchrony Financial has partnered with Step Up For Students. Synchrony Financial’s contribution will fund about 165 K-12 scholarships so financially disadvantaged Florida children may attend a private school or an out-of-district public school that fits their individual needs.
Synchrony Financial is committed to addressing the needs of today’s diverse working families through its Synchrony Families that Work corporate citizenship program. Giving back to the communities in which it does business is an important part of Synchrony Financial’s culture, with employees able to take paid time off for volunteer activities to help build a better community.
Employees at Synchrony Financial’s Central Florida sites have volunteered nearly 300 hours so far in 2016 to charitable causes, working with a number of local non-profit agencies.
Synchrony Financial is currently hiring for customer service and collections openings in Florida, offering competitive salaries and benefits including medical, dental, vision, matching 401K contributions, tuition and fitness reimbursement programs and more.
