Denver, CO, USA, April 20, 2021 -- TTEC Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTEC), a global digital Customer and Employee Experience as a Service (CXaaS) partner, and NXT Generation Training announced its partnership to deliver TTEC's patent-pending Humanify(R) DEI+ BOT. This AI-enabled solution is focused on diversity education and trains learners on empathy, communication bias, and inclusion.
The Humanify(R) DEI+ BOT blends machine and human learning to give learners a baseline understanding of bias and diversity by listening to user responses and then providing measurable feedback and real-time coaching to improve the quality and outcomes of conversations. Combined with dialogue, role-playing, and hands-on exercises, the Humanify(R) DEI+ BOT offers users the tools and confidence they need to manage uncomfortable conversations.
"Diversity and inclusivity conversations are no longer topics to avoid. They are a skill for companies to master so they can be the type of workplace that attracts the best talent," said Lamont Exeter, vice president of TTEC Digital and one of the leaders of TTEC's diversity council. "TTEC's award-winning artificial intelligence technology is the first of its kind, and with it, we are preparing every TTEC employee for difficult conversations around racial and gender equity, bias, micro-aggressions, diversity, and inclusion." The BOT's original intent was for peer-to-peer and manager-to-peer conversations in the workplace; however, the learnings go beyond and extend to how employees manage conversations with customers to deliver diverse and inclusive customer experiences.
NXT Generation Training, a provider in sustainable and scalable diversity training solutions, trained the Humanify(R) DEI+ BOT while TTEC developed the technology. TTEC designed the AI to complement instructor-led training and workshops, provide real-life scenario practice, real-time feedback, scoring, and coach users to apply practical experience to the information-based content.
"The partnership and release of the Humanify(R) DEI+ BOT marks a new milestone in diversity training for organizations globally," said Brenda L. Jones, president, NXT Generation Training. "Many organizations understand the benefits of diversity initiatives, but they currently have no way to measure the impact of their efforts. With this powerful new tool, TTEC is advancing its market position as a leader in diversity. With this technology, organizations can accelerate their diversity goals and aspirations creating meaningful change."
"People can learn the principles of diversity and inclusion, but they can be hard to apply without practice," shared Lenora Billings-Harris of UbuntuGlobal, another significant contributor to the Humanify DEI+ BOT. "For diversity and inclusion strategists like myself, the Humanify DEI+ BOT provides a unique tool to deepen a learner's understanding of diversity and inclusion by giving them the psychological safety to practice difficult conversations with an AI, rather than their peers."
Derwin Smiley, CEO of the Institute for Diversity Certification (IDC), a leading global professional certification program for diversity and inclusion, added, "We believe meaningful progress towards a more diverse and inclusive culture requires organizations to have a sustainable way to train their employees at scale. Humanify(R) DEI+ BOT offers an innovative tool to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in workplaces around the world. When combined with traditional training methods, this advanced tool will result in the wider adoption of best practices, cost savings, and expected outcomes."
