Omaha-based collection company is honored for ethics and integrity.

General Service Bureau Inc. (GSB), a nationwide collection agency serving primarily healthcare creditors, has been distinguished with the prestigious Better Business Bureau (BBB) Integrity Award for 2011 at an award ceremony at Embassy Suites in LaVista, NE on Thursday, September 15, 2011.

This award focuses on demonstrated ethical business practices with key stakeholders including customers, employees and the community at large, rather than a company’s growth, profitability or popularity.

They serve as role models for the business community in Omaha, and the Better Business Bureau Foundation is pleased to honor them with this prestigious award. ”

Chairman of the Board Bob Leavitt commented, “This award is a tremendous tribute to the dedicated hardworking staff at GSB, who at every level of the company have bought into the core values that guide us towards fulfilling our mission of “Enhancing the Financial Well-Being of Others.” I could not be more proud of not just how they conduct themselves, but that people really do notice and pay attention when you do business the right way."
