Article : Global Win for OCIS at Contact Center World Awards
Las Vegas – At the 2010 Best Practices Conference – The Top Ranking Performers in the Contact Center World – delegates and presenters from 30 nations around the world shared best practices. Delegates heard from the top 3 Human Resource professionals in the contact center world about their style, methods and results. After winning the Asia Pacific gold medal, Lene du Preez represented OCIS in the HR category and competed against other regional winners from across Europe and America.
Lene Du Preez is the Manager, People & Culture (Recruitment & HR Administration). The most important parts of her role are:
1. Meeting the day to day recruitment and training requirements of the business - this function is crucial because it has a direct and immediate impact on the bottom line of the business and the overall performance of the company including the company's ability to generate revenue and meet client expectations.
2. Assessing existing processes and procedures, identifying any gaps and ensuring that those gaps are addressed. This includes standardisation of processes and procedures across all three sites of the business to ensure that work is completed as effectively and efficiently as possible. This also means that risks are well managed and resources are available to focus on strategic and high value-add activities.
The global gold medal win places OCIS—and Australia—at the forefront of Human Resources best practice.
