TeleTech Pledges to Hire 1,000 Veterans in 2013
Strengthens Commitment to Military Veterans and Families
DENVER -- May 31, 2013
TeleTech Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTEC) has made a pledge to hire 1,000
veterans in 2013. As an industry leader in innovation, TeleTech understands
that hiring veterans and military spouses isn’t just the right thing to do –
it’s the smart thing to do.
Working in conjunction with the National Chamber Foundation and the Hiring
500,000 Heroes initiative, TeleTech has reaffirmed our commitment to hiring
and supporting the career growth of military veterans, active duty National
Guard and Reserves, and military spouses.
TeleTech has always demonstrated a steadfast commitment to hiring military
veterans, and as a result has formed several strategic partnerships; including
the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, the Employer Partnership of the
Armed Forces, Partnership for Youth Success, Military Spouse Employment
Partnership, and Veterans2Work.
Although TeleTech has a long history of hiring veterans and those associated
with the military, this year the company set an ambitious goal to push their
commitment, as well as set an example for their industry.
TeleTech’s military veterans also value the company’s approach and recognize
their efforts, “Finding an organization that understands and values what
military veterans bring to civilian, corporate level positions can be a
challenge,” said James McNeil, new corporate hire at TeleTech’s headquarters
in Englewood, Colorado. “I was relieved to see that they understood and were
interested in the experience I obtained while in the Navy.”
As part of this hiring initiative, TeleTech has created a website dedicated to
matching veterans with open positions. To help veterans find the position that
best fits their skill set, TeleTech has incorporated a skills translator tool
that allows job seekers to enter information including rank, unit and other
military details as a way to match their skills to TeleTech opportunities. For

“Hiring veterans is good business,” said Mike Jossi, TeleTech’s executive vice
president of human capital delivery. “We truly appreciate veterans’
experiences and have found that their transition into civilian positions is
smooth and successful. TeleTech actively supports veterans and believes that
more businesses should prioritize the hiring of veterans.”
Earlier this year, TeleTech reaffirmed its commitment to U.S. military
veterans by signing an Employment Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR)
pledge recognizing the value, leadership and skills of veterans at its
state-of-the-art customer service delivery center in Greeley, Colorado, as
well as around the nation.
For 30 years, TeleTech and its subsidiaries have helped the world’s most
successful companies design, enable, manage and grow customer value through
