TTEC wins Service Excellence Company of the Year and earns further finalist recognition at prestigious awards

18 October 2018 – TTEC, a leading global customer experience services provider, today announced it has been named Service Excellence Company of the Year in the annual 2018 Asia CEO Awards.

TTEC, which was founded in 1982 and has nearly 48,000 employees globally, was also a finalist in the Expatriate Executive of the Year for Arthur Nowak, Senior Vice President Operations in Manila, and the Wellness Company of the Year categories.

In 2017, TTEC led the services industry in client NPS and held a 95 percent client retention rate, while their employee NPS achieved an all-time record of +75 for the Asia Pacific region. The company culture represents a genuine commitment on behalf of the brand to provide service excellence to clients and clients’ customers, crossing every level of the organization.

“We’re extremely honoured and humbled to be named Service Excellence Company of the Year. This award is shared with our incredible team and our front-line brand ambassadors, who are making the greatest contributions to our clients’ customer experience programs,” Nowak said.

The Asia CEO Awards is the largest business awards event in Asia Pacific and the judging panel includes some of the most recognised and accomplished figures from within the Asia Pacific business community.

The award follows last week’s announcement that TTEC had been named Aon Best Employer in the Philippines for 2018 as part of Aon Best Employers program. The company is a pioneer in the contact centre market, having established operations in the Philippines in 1996, and supports hundreds of global client programs as an omnichannel customer experience services provider from more than 20 centres within the Asia Pacific region. TTEC supports millions of customer interactions across digital and voice channels every week from its 22 delivery centres serviced by more than 10,000 associates.

“Being customer facing for so many of the world’s leading brands is a job we take very seriously. We take a lot of time to employ the right people and train and encourage them to be the best they can. We hire the right people and hone their skills by giving them the proper training, tools, knowledge and mindset to be successful,” Nowak said.

In addition to the recognition as Service Excellence Company of the Year, TTEC was a finalist in two other categories within the prestigious awards programme:

Expatriate Executive of the Year - Finalist
