Exclusive Interview With Sylvia Miranda from Concentrix New Zealand
Can you tell us about the company you work for, the center you work in and your role?
I work for Concentrix which is a top 5 player in the contact center outsourcing business. I work in one of the Top Airline Account with Concentrix. I am a Real time analyst which means I am responsible for Call flow management, adjusting staffing schedules on and off phones as per requirements.
Which Top Ranking Performer Award did you enter and why did you choose it in the first place?
I entered into the category of "Analyst Role in the Contact Center", I picked up this category as I wanted to share my experience and expertise in analyzing situations which come up in the contact center. I wanted to emphasize the importance of Real Time Analyst in call flow management and staffing requirements.
You won one GOLD! - how do you feel about being a champion?
It is a fabulous feeling about being a winner. CCW has been a great platform to showcase my skills and it is amazing experience to be rewarded a Title of being the Best in what I do and the contribution I give to the contact center industry.
Can you tell us about the sense of pride you have now that you won a medal for your company and country?
It is a moment of pride since being nominated, to being a presenter and being voted as the Best in the APAC region. It literally felt like a huge achievement, and all the compliments from the Top management of the company and the celebration at work and home felt out of the world.
How does your company justify your involvement in this process? i.e. how do they know its valuable enough to participate?
My company is so proud of me and so are my colleagues. After Regional Win they are sending me to the World Competition, which is a clear indication they value the awards and the win. It is being promoted amongst the company so am sure for the next year there would be more participants involved in the process.
For those who are considering entering these awards, what would you say to those who are not sure about the value of these particular awards?
I have already spoken a lot about the awards to my colleagues of how to go about the application, how to prepare and how to perform. I am so proud of every moment and the achievement that I share my experience and I also let them know that it is really valuable which gives you a certificate of excellence, and puts you out in the market as the best employee.
Lastly, as you have been to one of our events, how would you describe the ideas from fellow presenters - imagine you are writing a paragraph to encourage others to attend the entire event!
The presentation and the ideas from fellow presenters was indeed quite meaningful. I enjoyed the enthusiasm of the presenters which clearly reflected that their company is really investing in the people, encouraging and motivating them to do exceptionally well in order to be able to be nominated and get a paid overseas trip and recognition. Such motivation drives employee satisfaction and encourages them to perform well and to stick around longer in the industry.
