Qualfon, a values-driven business process outsourcing (BPO) and call center service provider, will soon deliver fun activities (like photography, drawing, and pasta making) for its employees around the world, and a team of three Activities Coordinators were inducted to the company to design and roll out the new Qualfon FunClubs program. The new employees are:

  • Aimee A. Sibul, Activities Coordinator of Cebu
  • Bernadette Sharon Rivadinera, Activities Coordinator of Dumaguete
  • Neion Barry, Activities Coordinator of Guyana

“Qualfon’s mission and vision is to help as many people as possible pursue their total vocation—not just as career-driven professionals, but also as individuals and members of society,” explained Roberto Sanchez Mejorada, Qualfon’s Chief Mission Officer. “As part of that vision, we are delivering fun activities to help our employees further develop their interests, build new skills under trained experts, and try new things in a supportive environment.”

The Qualfon FunClubs program emphasizes values, friendship, and most of all fun! The clubs are learning workshops where employees can explore new hobbies, laugh with co-workers and friends, and simply practice a healthy work/life balance.

The types of activities offered will be based on employee input, and executing a survey to investigate employee interests is just the first of many tasks for Qualfon’s new Activities Coordinators. Qualfon held an induction workshop to welcome the coordinators and guide them in launching the program. Activities Coordinators will be responsible for:

  • Identifying top interests
  • Conducting feasibility studies
  • Coordinating the club location and registration
  • Promoting the FunClub activities
  • Performing satisfaction studies and applying lessons learned

“Our passion is to create a fun and rewarding experience for employees. Transforming lives is our way of life,” said Aimee Sibul, Qualfon’s Activities Coordinator in Cebu, Philippines.

The program is expected to launch in 2014 at Qualfon’s contact centers in Georgetown, Guyana, and also in Cebu and Dumaguete, Philippines. FunClubs will be implemented at additional sites at a later date.

Qualfon Data Services Group Qualfon DSG Employees Spread the Warmth this Holiday Season(Qualfon DSG), a values-driven back-office service provider, and its employees are spreading the warmth this holiday season by donating coats and clothes to those in need. Both the Shelbyville, Kentucky and the Deposit, New York offices sponsored coat and clothes drives to gather urgently needed items for local schools and charitable organizations.

In Shelbyville, employees presented 15 coats to Southside Elementary School and its students. Qualfon’s employee volunteers customized the drive to meet the needs of each identified child in need. A representative from the elementary school went to Qualfon DSG’s office to accept the gifts and show her personal appreciation.In both Deposit and Shelbyville, employees demonstrated support with a winter clothes and coat drive that resulted in donations for their local charities, including a local women’s shelter. The donations were delivered just before the Christmas holiday.

“Many people lack the resources they need to protect themselves from the dangerously cold temperatures we get in these areas,” said Chris Lord, Contact Center Manager in Kentucky. “When we heard about the need for coats, we immediately wanted to respond. At Qualfon DSG, our mission is to make people’s lives better, and that means getting out in your local community to make a difference in someone’s life. These coats are putting smiles on children’s faces, but they’re also bringing a sigh of relief for the parents who struggle to be the best providers. Now, these children are prepared to face Mother Nature’s unforgiving ways, and they can do it with stylish confidence.”

Bob Dechant and Nearshore Americas InterviewQualfon, a leading global business process outsourcing (BPO) and call center services provider, and its Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Bob Dechant, offered industry insight into the recent rise of “nearshoring” (outsourcing business functions to nearby countries) in a new video recently released by Nearshore Americas.  


The video, Evolution of Nearshore BPO: The Dynamics Behind Each Wave, is an interview between Kirk Laughlin, the Founder of Nearshore Americas, and Dechant, who explains the evolution of nearshoring over the past 20 years. Dechant offers insight into the key turning points, market trends, and business drivers that explain why nearshoring in Caribbean and Latin America countries is now gaining momentum in the outsourcing industry. As Dechant offers his perspective on which near-shore countries are best positioned for outsourcing success in 2014, he also provides industry-insider expertise on labor market dynamics and the relationship between geographic diversification and risk mitigation.

In the video, Dechant explained that outsourcing sophistication and market maturation are two factors driving near-shore investments. “Years ago companies went with one outsourcing provider and invested in one country, but today that is a dangerous position,” said Dechant. “To best mitigate risk, you need geographic diversity in your outsourcing locations. Companies that outsource need to understand each country’s strengths and weaknesses, and they need to know how to rebalance their outsourcing portfolio to successfully navigate challenges like job saturation, inflation, and natural disasters. As companies learn more about outsourcing in the Caribbean and in little-known, native English-speaking countries like Guyana, they are leveraging nearshoring as portfolio protection. That’s why Latin America and the Caribbean are explosive and powerful outsourcing markets today.”

Qualfon, a leading global busineQualfon Guyana Receives Foreign Investor of the Year Award from CAIPAss process outsourcing (BPO) and call center services provider, received the Foreign Investor of the Year Award from the Caribbean Association of Investment Promotion Agencies (CAIPA) and the Caribbean Export Development Agency. This award recognizes foreign investors (non-Caribbean nationals) whose investments have generated a significant impact on jobs creation and the local community. Qualfon was specifically recognized for its investments in Guyana, a native-English-speaking country in South America.

Qualfon was nominated for the award by GO-Invest, Guyana’s investment promotion and liaison agency, which has been working to expand investments in Guyana’s Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector and further diversify sources of economic growth. The award evaluation panel examined Qualfon and other companies based on:

  • Jobs created and the skill level of those jobs
  • Future projections for continued job growth
  • Sustainability of the investment
  • Social impact of the investment
  • Corporate social responsibility and community involvement

“Qualfon is honored to be recognized for our long-term investments in Guyana and the Caribbean region, but it should be the government of Guyana, GO-Invest and the people of Guyana who should be receiving this award,” said Brian Kearney, Vice President of Marketing at Qualfon. “They are the ones who have supported Qualfon from the start, back in 2005. They are easy to do business with, and together, we have improved the technology infrastructure and have established a new industry for Guyana. As a result, Qualfon has grown rapidly in Guyana and our highly tenured employees and local management make us the top-ranked services provider for our clients. It is their success and our strong partnership that has led Qualfon to invest in one of the world’s largest call center campuses in Guyana, which will provide more than 6,000 additional jobs.”

Qualfon’s mission is to be the best BPO and to make people’s lives better. “That mission starts with investing first in our people,” said Kearney. “From the top levels of our organization, we focus on areas that are important to our people beyond just their job.  It is important that they have good pay, an excellent work environment, career advancement opportunities, and good management, but our people also care about their families and friends, their faith, their health, and their communities.  This is why Qualfon has employee programs including food subsidies for their families, free medical clinics and medicine, interfaith chapels and chaplains in our centers and support for their volunteering efforts in the community. We not only want to make their lives better, but we know that in turn they will make our customers’ lives better, their family and friends’ lives better, and their communities better.”

“Qualfon is one of the few companies whose resilience has been evidenced and whose commitment to the growth of our local economies must be applauded,” said Chris McNair, Manager for Innovation and Competitiveness for the Caribbean Export Development Agency. “Qualfon should be heralded as a role model, and their business practices should serve as demonstration projects or success stories for other investors in the Caribbean region. We are honored that Qualfon is the first foreign investor ever to receive this award from our organization.”

Qualfon, a leading global business process outsourcing (BPO) and call center services provider, will spend $2.8 million to renovate a long-vacant manufacturing building in Hancock, New York and build a contact center and back-office processing facility that will create a projected 400 new jobs.

Data Control Group, LLC has been operating for 11 years in Deposit, New York and was recently acquired by Qualfon. As a division of Qualfon, Data Control Group was renamed Qualfon Data Services Group (DSG) and specializes in back-office processing services.

“Qualfon is a growing company that has experienced great success in the Delaware River valley. We love the people and their work ethic, and we’re excited to further expand our presence in New York,” said Pete Lutz, Sr. Vice President of Qualfon Data Services Group. “Upstate New York offers a skilled workforce with a population of 200,000 in a 25-mile radius. Plus, the high demand for contact center and back-office processing positions in the area has been a key factor in driving our investment in Hancock.”

Qualfon will revitalize a dormant portion of the Becton-Dickinson plant, which sits on a 52-acre parcel at the confluence of the East and West branches of the Delaware River and formerly housed a medical products manufacturer. The project will be built in two phases, and phase one is scheduled to be complete in the Spring of 2014. Qualfon DSG will move its current employees and back-office operations in nearby Deposit, New York to the new location in Hancock and will occupy 35,000 square feet of the building. Later, it plans to expand to 50,000 square feet.

The state and local governments have shown outstanding support for Qualfon’s expansion by providing information and by helping Qualfon secure a grant to pave the way for this project. “We want to thank Glenn Nealis, the Director of the Delaware County Economic Development, and Joe Roman with Empire State Development for spearheading this effort and for being great partners,” said Lutz.

Furthermore, in an effort to facilitate the hiring process, the Chenango-Delaware-Otsego Workforce Investment Board (CDO) has agreed to help Qualfon in the process of identifying, recruiting, and training of employees. The 400 new jobs will stretch beyond Qualfon’s current back-office processing positions and offer customer service, sales, and technical support positions that will help customers across a variety of communication channels including phone, chat, email, and social media.

In addition to new jobs, Qualfon plans to provide comprehensive in-house and educational training to all employees to ensure that local residents with a high school diploma or equivalency degree will qualify for the majority of the jobs to be created.  Additionally, Qualfon will offer all employees health insurance benefits, including vision and dental, 401k options, and potentially even assistance with child care.

James Thomson, Chairman of the Delaware County Industrial Development Agency (the agency that will oversee the project and administration of the financial assistance) stated, “Congressman Gibson’s office provided critical support in the County’s efforts to put an incentive package together to attract Qualfon to the area.” Thomson added, “This project will help to stimulate new investment within the Village and promote the revitalization of its downtown commercial district.  The creation of 400 new full-time jobs, with company provided health insurance benefits, will provide a stable foundation upon which the community can continue to rebuild its economy.”

James Eisel, Chairman of the Delaware County Board of Supervisors stated, “The economic impacts for the Town of Hancock and Delaware County are huge. Delaware County welcomes Qualfon and stands ready to assist and to encourage industry and job development opportunity which leads to important community development.”

Qualfon, a leading global business process outsourcing (BPO) and call center services provider, announced that it has successfully operated in Georgetown, Guyana for eight years now, and it is has much to celebrate as the largest employer in the private sector. Guyana is a native-English-speaking country in South America.Qualfon Guyana 8th Year Anniversary Advertisement

Qualfon’s 8th anniversary in Guyana marks many milestones and stories of rapid growth. In 2005, Qualfon started with just 79 employees. Today, it has 1,590 employees across two locations, and success is spawning more expansion in Georgetown. In September, Qualfon announced that it is building one of the world’s largest contact center campuses, which will create roughly 6,000 jobs over the next five years.

Qualfon is being called a leader in building the country’s Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector, and its recent investments in Guyana are gaining recognition. In November, the Caribbean Association of Investment Promotion Agencies and the Caribbean Export Development Agency presented Qualfon with the Foreign Investor of the Year award for stimulating the country’s economic growth and development.

“Our eight years in Guyana have been marked by increasing levels of investment and the provision of hundreds of jobs for Guyanese young people,” said Mark Boyer, Qualfon’s Guyana Site Director. “We are deeply committed to achieving greater success and maintaining a work environment that allows growth and cherishes personal values among employees.”

Qualfon, a leading global eCommerce Company Selects Qualfon to Provide Customer Service from Georgetown, Guyanabusiness process outsourcing (BPO) and call center services provider, announced today that Kirk Laughlin, the Founder & CEO of Nearshore Americas, a news organization that covers outsourcing, toured Qualfon’s contact center in Georgetown, Guyana and afterward reported that Qualfon’s Guyana operations have “some of the longest agent tenure in the region” and “are emblematic of a country starting to make a bigger name for itself in business process outsourcing (BPO).” Laughlin made this report after he took a camera crew into the contact center and performed a walk-through interview with Qualfon’s Senior Operations Manager, Sherwin Welcome.

The Longest Tenure: Why It Matters and Qualfon’s Tenure Rates

“Employee tenure and attrition rates are critical in the outsourced contact center industry because they create enormous value for both the client and its customers,” explained Brian Kearney, Qualfon’s Vice President of Marketing.

“When a contact center company can engage its employees and keep them on staff longer, two critical advantages take place,” said Kearney. “First, the highly experienced workforce delivers top-quality service to consumers, enhancing the customer experience and increasing the potential for award-winning service, brand loyalty, and increased customer value. Second, the tenured workforce decreases operational costs, allowing the contact center company to deliver aggressively low prices to its clients. This high-performance/low-cost operation is the ‘state of nirvana’ that only the best contact center service providers can offer, and it leads back to employee tenure. That’s why Qualfon’s business model is built around investing in people and achieving industry-leading tenure rates.”

Qualfon’s company mission is to be the best BPO and to make people’s lives better. It invests millions of dollars each year into employees, their families, and communities. As a result, Qualfon’s overall employee tenure rates are two times higher than the industry average. “In Georgetown, Guyana, Qualfon is growing. We’re adding new employees every month, but we still maintain average tenure rate of 28.8 months because many of our agents have been with us for five, six, and seven years. Our local Guyanese contact center managers have an average tenure of +85 months, which also enables us to provide award-winning services,” said Kearney.

Qualfon Helps the Country of Guyana Make a Bigger Name for Itself in BPO

Nearshore Americas also reported that “Qualfon’s Georgetown, Guyana operations are emblematic of a country starting to make a bigger name for itself in BPO.” Guyana is a native-English-speaking country in South America that is not widely recognized for outsourcing. The Nearshore America video interview shows how Qualfon’s outsourced service operations grew from 40 employees to more than 1,300 employees in a matter of a few years.

“Our significant growth is really putting Guyana on the BPO map,” said Kearney. “We’re growing and bringing more investor’s here because of Guyana’s unique characteristics that strategically position it to be the next big location for contact center work. Guyana’s native-English-speaking population, high affinity for the U.S. culture, close proximity to the U.S., sophisticated technical infrastructure, and its BPO service costs (competitive with India and the Philippines) make it a strong candidate for outsourced services.” Qualfon started operating in Georgetown, Guyana in 2005. Today, it is the largest private employer in Guyana. It has two contact centers in Georgetown and is currently building one of the world’s largest contact center campuses, which will create 6,000 new jobs over the next five years.

Qualfon, a leading global business process outsourcing (BPO) and call center services provider, partnered with a new client in the eCommerce industry and successfully launched a customer service program in Guyana, a native-English-speaking country in South America. The eCommerce company is now routing its customer service phone calls to Qualfon’s trained professionals in Georgetown, the capital city of Guyana.eCommerce Company Selects Qualfon to Provide Customer Service

The eCommerce company creates and ships millions of unique products each year and selected Qualfon and its Georgetown, Guyana outsourcing location because:

  1. Qualfon Georgetown offers native-English professionals in a near-shore site that is also a low-cost labor market
  2. Georgetown, Guyana’s untapped talent pool allows Qualfon to easily scale operations up and down to meet the client’s dynamic needs and fluctuating seasonal demands
  3. Qualfon’s company mission to “make people’s lives better” fosters a culture that creates superior customer experiences and complements the client’s core company values

“This new partnership is sign of continued growth for Qualfon and our further expansion into the e-commerce industry, but it also serves as a signal for companies to pay closer attention to benefits of outsourcing in Guyana,” said Bob Dechant, Qualfon’s Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. “More and more companies are making significant investments in Guyana because it’s a native-English-speaking country that is close to the U.S. and offers pricing competitive with India and the Philippines. All of these things make Guyana a great location, and the market is really beginning to validate it as an outsourcing leader in the Caribbean and Latin American region,” said Dechant. “Even the news media is starting to corroborate Guyana for outsourcing.”

Nearshore Americas, a major news organization that covers IT and BPO outsourcing across Latin America and the Caribbean, is now covering Guyana as an outsourcing destination. In October, it published a video interview with Guyana President Donald Ramotar, who explains why Guyana is unique for outsourcing.

Additionally, Qualfon is making major investments in Guyana. In September, Qualfon announced it is building one of the world’s largest contact center campuses in Georgetown and expects to create 6,000 jobs over the next five years.

Qualfon DSG Helps Chinese Employees Practice Speaking EnglishQualfon Data Services Group (DSG), a values-driven back-office service provider, launched a new program to help its employees in China practice their English-speaking skills. The Interpretation Services program connects back-office employees in its Harbin and Xian, China production centers with employees in Shelbyville, Kentucky and Deposit, NY so the Chinese can exercise their conversational English skills. Every day, employees spend 15-20 minutes communicating via phone.

“It’s common for our back-office employees in China to read and write English very well. But, they rarely have the opportunity to practice speaking English,” explained Peter Yang, Qualfon DSG’s China Operations Manager. “As a company that works to make people’s lives better, this program was designed to help our employees advance their conversational English, so they can feel more comfortable as they put their skills and talents to use.”

English skills are highly desirable in China and often help employees earn higher wages. “Everyone is happy. Employees learn conversational English and understand cultural nuances, while Qualfon DSG expands its potential,” said Yang.
