The long awaited holiday season is upon us and I know for sure a lot of people are excited to spend their time with family and friends. During the holidays, there are festivities and events, delicious food and drink, and all types of fun and merriment. Unfortunately, all of this extra excitement and extra calories causes many to gain weight.
As a global organization that services clients in many different languages, TeleTech employees are servicing the customers of our client companies 24/7. An associate may speak the name of the client company hundreds of times every day. So I recently had a conversation with Kelly Culler, Senior Vice President of Global Human Capital, and Tim Hinds, Vice President of Human Capital.

I've been called by others an 'expert in'... online recruitment, digital advertising, social media... and more... but I do not believe that there is such a thing as a fully developed 'expert.' In today's ever-evolving digital world, there are only those that happen to have been exposed to more than others in that particular field. We build knowledge, wisdom, experience through life-long learning. I prefer to call myself a 'perpetual student.' As it implies, I believe I am only as good as my knowledge and skills are today. Things might change tomorrow... or maybe even better... things WILL change tomorrow. It's not that I feel that I have to keep up with the Joneses. Learning is just a way of life for me. I am inquisitive. I like learning new things. I like exploring new technologies. I believe that if you are the one to see a problem, rather than complain about it, you should be a part of the solution. I know that everyone and every experience I encounter has something to teach me.
