Qualfon, a mission-driven business process outsourcing (BPO) company and global provider of contact center services, reported that it now has 1,109 employees who have earned Six Sigma Green Belt certification. The achievement marks forward progress in Qualfon’s effort to certify every supervisor and leader in Six Sigma best practices for process improvement.

“With more than 1,100 green-belt-certified employees, Qualfon has established a leadership culture that is unique in the industry. We’re not aware of any other BPOs that have made this across-the-board commitment to Six Sigma. But at Qualfon, it has sparked an organizational mindshare around standard processes for continuous improvement in our contact centers,” said Al Barrenechea, Director of Qualfon University.

Qualfon recently exceeded 90% attainment of all client KPIs (Key Performance Indicators), and company leaders attribute that success at least in part to the global infusion of Six Sigma practices. Qualfon’s KPIs are measured at an enterprise level and have been steadily climbing over the past two years, since the Six Sigma and Leadership Academy initiative was put into place.

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.

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.
