Qualfon GiveAtWork Website

Qualfon, a mission-driven business process outsourcing (BPO) company and global provider of contact center services, is offering new avenues through which employees can volunteer their time to support non-profit organizations and charitable causes. The new Give@Work website provides access to an extensive network of virtual community projects where employees can lend a hand—anytime, anywhere, and for any length of time.

“Volunteerism appeals to our employees, but many find themselves unable to follow through due to time constraints, commitment requirements, and the burden of travel. So, we’re working to remove those barriers and make it easy to make a difference in the world,” explained Roberto Sanchez Mejorada, Chief Mission Officer, Qualfon.

Known as home-based micro-volunteerism, this concept has become popular online. People volunteer remotely, giving whatever time they have, and many small actions add up to big results. Through partnerships with websites like HelpFromHome.orgDoSomething.org, and GlobalGiving.org, Qualfon’s Mission Office and Give@Work program is connecting employees with virtual opportunities to support real causes. Some of the activities include:

  • Bookmarking climate change
  • Promoting a culture of reading to Cambodian children
  • Mapping planets and asteroids
  • Fighting hunger with food donations

“The Give@Work website expands our reach and our ability to engage employees, giving them more options and channels through which they can volunteer. But it also empowers our employees to make an impact at the global level. They can volunteer locally and contribute to other countries and global issues,” added Sanchez Mejorada.

Qualfon’s Mission Office is responsible for helping the company act on its mission: “Be the best BPO. Make people’s lives better.” In every community where Qualfon operates, the Mission Office team creates local volunteer activities, coordinating with nearby non-profits and bringing in employee volunteers to support needs. Now, the website “takes that work to a new level,” said Sanchez Mejorada. “Great things happen when you make people aware, give them the right tools and channels, and connect them with causes they care about.”

The Give@Work website is one of many digital service strategies Qualfon is using to engage employees and empower mission achievement. In March 2017, the company announced the launch of its online Fun Clubs, and in 2016 it rolled out a mobile application making news, programs, and services easily accessible online.

Qualfon Support for 2040 Cuatro Cienegas PlanQualfon, a mission-driven business process outsourcing (BPO) company and global provider of contact center services, and several employee volunteers spent one week in Cuatro Cienegas, Coahuila, Mexico assisting the local community with a variety of service projects. The effort supported the Cuatro Cienegas 2040 Plan which, much like Qualfon’s company mission, aims to make peoples’ lives better.

Eight Qualfon volunteers and five of their family members spent Holy Week in Cuatro Cienegas, painting a chapel and assisting with medical care. The team worked largely in partnership with the Juventud y Familia Misionera, an international organization of Catholic youth and families that has been supporting Cuatro Cienegas for many years. Qualfon has been regularly assisting with the plan, and the April trip is one of the largest employee group efforts thus far.

This will go a long way in helping us grow our mission to be the best BPO and make people’s lives better.”

“Delivering on client KPIs is the foundation for keeping our commitments, and it serves as the basis for what’s important to our clients and their customers,” said John Yanez Qualfon President.

Qualfon Group Presidents attribute the KPI accomplishment to several factors:

  1. Group President Structure: Strategic business units, led by Group Presidents, are laser-focused on each client’s business
  2. Weekly KPI Call: A detailed executive review of 394 client KPIs
  3. Qualfon Operational Model: A rigorous, monthly audit of all operational processes and deliverables

Coaching for Growth LogoQualfon, a mission-driven business process outsourcing (BPO) company and global provider of contact center services, announced that its Coaching for Growth implementation process is making a positive impact on performance metrics within Qualfon’s operations and client programs. The coaching process was implemented across three different client accounts in Texas, Colorado, and Mexico, spurring increases in overall quality scores and other performance metrics. These preliminary results have leaders across the operations and training departments excited to expand the practices in additional contact centers and client accounts.

“This is now a proven concept. From here, it’s all about rinse and repeat,” said Kathy Flowers, Qualfon’s Global Qualfon Director of Learning & Development, who explained that the team is eagerly learning from the initial pilot to make enhancements and additional investments.

The Coaching for Growth model was developed by Qualfon, and the instruction is designed to give supervisors, operations managers, and other leaders best practices for coaching subordinates. The model itself is not new to Qualfon. For the past several years, the company has been teaching its principals in Leadership Academy courses. But now, the model comes with an implementation process that helps leaders build action plans around it, making it easy to operationalize the teachings in the contact center environment.

I am honored and privileged to thank them for their dedication to Qualfon, our clients, and our clients’ customers,” replied Marrow, when asked why he feels it is important to uphold this tradition—even as the company continues to grow.

The new online Fun Club platform helps Qualfon include employees who work remotely and cater to traditional office employees who feel virtual interactions are a better fit their lifestyle.

“As a global company with 13,000 employees spread across four countries, we recognized that we weren’t maximizing our opportunity to reach everyone. Many of our remote employees were reaching out to me asking how they can get involved. That is when the idea of online clubs started taking shape,” explained Jason Skurupey, Corporate Missions Project Manager at Qualfon.

On March 2, 2017, Qualfon launched is first set of online Fun Clubs, which cover topics including photography, cooking, health, books, virtual museum tours, and TED Talks (a National Public Radio podcast and show).
