Our culture

Inspiring our people

Inspiring our people

BPOs tend to focus on contact center tools, solutions and technologies rather than on helping team members realize their potential. At TELUS International, we take a different approach.

Sure, we offer the latest services – but what else do we do?

We also invest in our team members, their families, and the communities where we live, work and serve. An engaged agent is an inspired agent, so we surround them with things that matter to them. It’s part of our culture and DNA. We see the results of this people-first approach in increased agent engagement, loyalty and superior performance. Our clients also see the results reflected in their top and bottom‐line. We call this the Culture Value Chain – and invite you to learn more from this short video.

The business value of culture

At TELUS International, we believe that when an outsourcer maintains an equally high level of employee engagement as the client, it’s possible to predict a corresponding improvement in the client’s top‐line business outcomes over a given time period.

As an illustration, in a one‐year span, a TELUS International social gaming client experienced an employee engagement rate of 80%. During that same span:

  • Annualized attrition fell by 7.1%
  • Net Promoter Score (NPS) increased by an astounding 26%
  • Revenue increased by 12%
