What Company Delivers Promises to Deliver “Insanely Great” Customer Experiences? Who Glows?
Frost & Sullivan believes that Alorica Philippines has inserted creativity and innovation into the hard stuff: BPO recruiting, hiring, training and agent retention.
Innovations in Agent Hiring
Alorica utilizes a robust, high-capacity recruiting and hiring engine using automation. The automation drives speed, agility and volume. It serves as a ‘first round’ interview and candidate engagement tool; handling audio and video responses that capture fluency and articulation. This automated chatbot service is embedded into the Alorica Philippines Facebook Fan page and can be launched from there.
What Sets Alorica Apart from other BPOs in the Philippines?
Microlearning. Aimed at the new wave of Millennials, this just-in-time (JIT) training approach delivers training content when an agent needs it. This new training tool set offers bite-sized modules that are focused on specific learning outcomes.
Gamification. Given that 42% of frontline agents fall between the ages of 20 and 36, Alorica’s gamification program appeals to the Millennial population. Alorica in the Philippines utilizes gamification software to aid training and learning; applying game mechanics to non-game experiences to motivate high-value activity and loyalty while reinforcing a fun and positive culture.
A Laser Focus on People
Note this competitive differentiator: Alorica has developed and evolved a Strategic Onboarding framework and invested in a dedicated Onboarding Team to support the new hire experience, engaging and enabling employees in the first 90 days of employment with the company. The outcome is a highly motivated workforce and significantly improved agent retention.
