Key Findings & Highlights
Teleperformance started its WAHA practice in 2006; at this stage it shifted fifty top performing agents from its brick and mortar operations in Columbus and Salt Lake City to a work from home environment. Following this, Teleperformance began a dedicated WAHA hiring practice in order to target specific WAHA dedicated agents, and by mid 2009 its WAHA operations had grown to 200 agents. At this stage Teleperformance was operating on a hub and spoke model.
Nearer the end of 2009, Teleperformance was looking to move to a partial virtual WAHA environment and partnered with virtualwirks, a distributed work consulting and leadership firm. At the same time, Teleperformance acquired a WAHA pure play, The Answer Group (TAG), with ~500 WAH agents; TAG was integrated into Teleperformance from 2009 to 2012.
At this stage, Teleperformance was operating on a 50/50 virtual and hub and spoke basis, and the goal was to move all WAHA functions to a virtual model, so Teleperformance has invested in enhancing its processes, platform and leadership; by Q3 of 2014, Teleperformance had achieved its goal of moving to a fully virtual model.
Currently Teleperformance has >800 WAHA agents supporting nine clients in the U.S. and is aggressively moving into international geographies, heading into 2015.
The company’s goal is to double current WAHA revenues by 2015, without having cannibalized support from its brick and mortar operations.
