Qualfon Online Fun ClubsQualfon, a mission-driven business process outsourcing (BPO) company and global provider of contact center services, is now offering Fun Clubs online where employees from across the globe can engage with others who have like interests. 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). While some of the online clubs are duplicates of the most popular face-to-face or onsite clubs, many are new and exclusive to the online platform. Member numbers are increasing every day.

Qualfon’s employee-run fun clubs are spearheading the efforts, coordinating birthday parties for children and offering crafty entertainment for both adults and children. Haven for Hope is a 22-acre campus of hope and new beginnings providing transformational services to help people address the root cause of homelessness.

“Our partnership with Haven for Hope continues to blossom,” said Steve Tatarian, V.P. of Operations at Qualfon San Antonio. “Qualfon’s fun clubs are a great complement to Haven’s programs, and our employees are eager to put their skills and talents to work for the hundreds of people that Haven for Hope serves every day.”

In August, the Qualfon E.C.H.O. (Everyone Can Help Others) fun club assisted Haven in hosting a birthday party for resident children. The party is now a monthly tradition and ongoing program. With the helping hands of 25 Qualfon volunteers, E.C.H.O. provides party planners, pizza, cake, gifts, and games for a gaggle of youngsters ages 1 to 16.

Other employees and fun clubs quickly followed suit. The Art Club and book club (called a Novel Idea) started experimenting with art activities and reading groups for both children and adults at the campus. Those activities were well received, and starting in January 2017, the Puzzle Club, Sport Club, and Music Club will join their efforts, adding a larger variety of entertainment through Courtyard Gathering events.

As a part of the Mission Office Fun@Work initiative, employee-run fun clubs are the norm at Qualfon, and employees in San Antonio quickly embraced this mission program.
