We are delighted to be announced as winners of the 2021 Globetrotter category, at the Calabrio ONE Awards.
The mission of the ONE Awards is to recognise high-achieving Calabrio ONE customers charting the future of agent and customer engagement.
A global company headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, Calabrio provides our Workforce Engagement Management (WEM) platform, formerly known to us as Teleopti, before its merger under the Calabrio brand in 2019.
Winner of the ‘Globetrotter’ category – Ascensos
As Calabrio say; Can’t stop. Won’t stop. Our successful WFO deployment spans countries and cultures, yet interactions are more streamlined than ever. Whether our agents are at home, in the office or hybrid – we’ve carefully considered our employees’ work/life balance while continuing to meet our customers’ changing expectations.
Congratulations and a huge well done to our UK Resource Planning Team for being recognised for their best practice WFH deployment, adapting to the change and taking it in their stride, to benefit our colleagues, client and the business. Fast moves on their part!
Paul Pearson, Resource Planning Manager, said;
“With hundreds of new Advisors joining our UK operation within a 48-hours, our move away from a previously manual process, to quickly adapt to and implement the more robust ‘preference’ function within Calabrio WFM, enabled us to build processes which accommodated a flexible working-model quickly.
After delivering internal training to colleagues within the campaign, not only did they find the system more user friendly than that used previously, but their feedback to date has been incredibly positive, as has the increase in productive hours".
Michael Armstrong, Head of Planning, commented;
"Paul and the team have done an incredible job navigating our move to WFH. Our colleagues' happiness is paramount, which is why investing in an industry-leading platform such as Calabrio, to enable our Advisor community to see their rota, book holidays and apply for shifts, is fundamental to our colleague experience".
