As a 100% employee owned company, our people are uniquely incentivized to go above and beyond for our clients because they benefit directly from the success of ACT and the customers that we support. We foster that drive to succeed through a number of internal organizations that our people are encouraged to join to identify and create new opportunities for themselves and their peers within the business. These include our Women of ACTion Committee and ESOP Committee.
In 2021, we became a 100% employee-owned company through the creation of our ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). This benefit plan provides workers with an ownership interest in the company in the form of stock shares. That move ensures that our employees are engaged, motivated and aligned with goals of our clients because they benefit personally from that success. Our focus on the employee experience as part of our total experience approach has been a major differentiator. In fact, our business has seen two straight years of double-digit growth since we decided to place the employee experience at the center of our strategic priorities.
At ACT, we have one corporate “portal” where each of our 12,000+ employees start their day. This portal has a number of features that are designed to give our people a variety of opportunities to be heard. This ranges from company-wide polls to tools that let our people recognize a teammate who they feel truly represents one of our six corporate values. The results are quickly displayed across the portal ensuring our people know that they are heard and valued within the business.
Our core business is built on enabling our people to deliver world class services, representing the brands of our clients. As a result, our training programs and daily operations are entirely focused on identifying and driving continuous improvement for each of our employees. We’re proud to have mapped 100% of the touchpoints that make up the Employee Experience for our teams and are constantly identifying new ways to improve that experience, making it easier for our people to succeed. We also offer a series of leadership programs including our ACT Academy and a “jungle gym” career pathing approach that gives our people opportunities to gain experience in entirely new career paths such as HR, Operations, or IT.
Our corporate values are a direct reflection of what makes our employee owners proud to work at ACT, and the characteristics of our teams that make us successful because they were created entirely from inputs, feedback and surveys provided by our frontline teams. The values are incredibly personal to our people because they are in no way abstract. Our values are an extension of how we do business and ensure we’re aligned with the goals and priorities of our clients.
ACT has a combination of locally-based and company-wide programs that make this a great place to work. Locally our teams are encouraged to engage with the local community in charities, fundraisers and events that make their workplace a positive contributor to the place they call home. Then on the global level our employees are consistently recognized in global communications and on the ACT Portal for their achievements and contributions to the business. It sounds simple, but our commitment to continuously sharing individual stories and successes across the broader business allows our 12,000 people across 22 locations to feel more connected and included in the business.
Our CEO represents and reinforces our company values through a clear and genuine commitment to being a world leader in Employee Experience. This means that we are obsessed with understanding how each touchpoint of the Employee Experience affects our people and what opportunities exist to remove complexity and make their jobs easier, improving their ability to deliver great experiences to customers.
ACT offers a competitive range of benefits including performance-based bonuses, flexible schedules, dental and healthcare, and the ability to access up to 50% of their earned income every day, on-demand with the touch of a button. But our most unique benefit is our ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). An ESOP is a qualified employee retirement plan that holds company stock for the benefit of employees. The ESOP benefit is funded entirely by company contributions and requires no out-of-pocket investment by employees. Employee ownership is all part of ACT’s focus on building a great team member culture that translates into top-notch customer experiences.
ACT is a U.S.-based business process outsourcing provider and global leader in customer care. Our approach is founded on a winning formula – that the best solutions integrate Employee Experience (EX) + Customer Experience (CX) + User Experience (UX) + Digital Experience (DX) + Multi-experience (MX) for an outstanding Total Experience (TX) overall. As a 100% employee-owned company, we have placed Employee Experience at the center of our business strategy because we know that happy employees ensure the best customer outcomes. As shareholders in the business, our Employee Owners have a personal interest in delivering value to our clients, and their motivations are uniquely aligned to our clients’ success.
We have more than 25 years’ experience helping our partners drive growth and brand loyalty by providing amazing experiences across every touchpoint and channel of the customer journey. We serve many of the world’s top companies, including numerous Fortune 50 clients. We offer a broad range of leading-edge technologies and custom solutions tailored to your business needs to make every customer connection count.
