IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--It is with great honor that Alorica Inc., the world’s leading platform for all customer interactions, announced that it has been recognized with the CCW Excellence Award for Best Training and Development Program during the 19th Annual Customer Contact Week (CCW) conference and expo. The CCW Excellence Awards honor, recognize and promote individuals and teams who have made a commitment to driving superior contact center and CX performance. The Best Training & Development Program category recognizes the ability to – among other things – build flexible coaching strategies and reward, distinguish and incentivize employees.
“At Alorica, we’ve made it a priority to invest in our global team – at all levels within the organization – offering a challenging and exciting work environment and an excellent place to build a meaningful career,” said Andy Lee, Chairman & CEO at Alorica. “We are honored to be recognized by industry experts and peers for our efforts in creating and implementing innovative methods to hire, train and retain our workforce. We are committed to delivering continued employee development, which in turn leads to happier employees, resulting in more insanely great customer interactions.”
Key highlights of Alorica's training and development programs that were provided in the award submission include:
- Retain Employees Through Pre-Hire Assessments – With predictive employee profiling, which measures and identifies required minimum skills, knowledge and behavior, our HR team can easily identify the best fit roles for 75% of applicants prior to interview.
- Leverage Tools to Measure and Track Agent Performance – By integrating microlearning, gamification and learning analytics to accelerate agents’ memory and speed to performance, we’re able to solve knowledge gaps with personalized, on-demand and adaptive learning. The simple interface offers engagement features that make learning stick. Agents experience eight core psychological triggers that lead to faster learning, deeper comprehension and memorization.
- Build Flexible Coaching Strategies – The coaching strategies that are helping move Alorica to the next level of performance improvement, includes our knowledge engineering program’s Learner Engagement segment, which finds and fixes confidently held misinformation influencing agents’ mastery of material. This misinformation is a higher risk because it’s falsely relied upon as if it were true, and confidence influences decisions. For example, for one client, we proactively identified areas where 26% of learners had inaccuracies. Following remedial training, Alorica achieved 100% eradication of confidently held misinformation impacting the new hire proficiency.
- Overcome Generational Challenges – For modern learners who grew up in the lap of technology, Alorica tailors the training curriculum with relatable microlearning, delivered in 15-minute increments to ensure knowledge retention. Often used through tablet gadgets, microlearning keeps learning concise, addresses short attention spans and boosts agent performance. To creatively engage, regardless of generation, Alorica uses Captivate, a rapid response authoring tool, to create custom simulations, branched scenarios and demos.
- Deploy Rewards, Recognition and Incentive Program – We recently created a new executive position – Chief Employee Experience and Legal Officer – dedicated to implementing initiatives focused on the employee experience. In addition, to ensuring employee engagement activities are launched and executed company-wide, each of our 130+ sites has its own Culture Champion and Culture Committee, where they plan on-site events and help oversee celebrations and contests. We have also implemented a biannual awards program called Game Changer, which recognizes those employees who continually deliver insanely great customer experience while bringing Alorica’s vision, mission and promise to life.
