TTEC Reflects: Celebrating Memorial Day and the Legacy of Service

TTEC Reflects Celebrating Memorial Day Legacy Service

By Kenny Luyun


“May we never forget that freedom isn’t free.”

The Memorial Day observance serves as a reminder of the sacrifices made by countless soldiers who have laid down their lives in defense of our nation. This holiday, steeped in history and tradition, acts as a bridge between the past and present, honoring the bravery and valor of American service members. At TTEC, we don’t just honor and support veterans and military families but also reflect on their contributions and sacrifices. Memorial Day reminds us of the costs of freedom and reinforces the values the military personnel have defended.

Reflecting on Our Core Values

We’re guided by a set of core values that resonate deeply with the principles exemplified by military personnel. Here at TTEC, we try to emulate the values woven into the core of our fallen heroes: dedication, service, and sacrifice.

Dedication: Our fallen heroes demonstrated unwavering dedication to their mission and comrades. At TTEC, we model ourselves on those same values by showcasing a steadfast commitment to delivering exceptional customer service. Our dedication is evident in the way we approach work – always striving to go above and beyond to meet the needs of our clients and their customers.

Service: We’ll always be in awe of how the concept of service in the military means working for the greater good. Here, we take after the value of service to our military personnel by fostering a culture of teamwork and collaboration. We serve not only our clients but also our communities, understanding that true service extends beyond the workplace.

Sacrifice: The ultimate sacrifices made by our fallen heroes remind us of the selflessness required to protect our freedom. TTEC embodies this value by supporting colleagues in times of need and consistently prioritizing the team’s collective success. Our community incorporates this value by supporting colleagues in times of need and consistently prioritizing the team's collective success.

These values guide our mission and daily operations, creating a workplace where integrity, respect, and excellence thrive. We’re proud of how our teams embody these values in their professional roles and in their contributions to the community, especially since we’re celebrating Memorial Day.

TTEC’s Initiatives to Support Military Personnel

The cornerstone of TTEC’s commitment to giving back is supporting veterans and military families. The transition from military to civilian life can be challenging, and TTEC is dedicated to providing resources and opportunities to help veterans succeed in their post-military careers.

TTEC actively offers jobs for military veterans and military spouses jobs, recognizing the unique skills and experiences they bring to the workforce. Veterans possess discipline, strategic thinking, and leadership that are invaluable in a corporate setting. For example, Ed Swanner, a Manager at TTEC, has utilized the knowledge and abilities he brought from the Marine Corps in his Sales Service Delivery role.

Ed shares, “As part of the Marines, we’re trained to make strategic decisions according to each unique scenario. Thinking, acting, and moving with a sense of purpose is mandatory on the battlefield. When TTEC hired me in 2011, I was encouraged to use those abilities. However, it’s my mentors who helped me polish my skills and potential. Since then, I have been able to grow my post-military career here.”

Ed’s success story is just one of many testaments to TTEC’s commitment to supporting veterans, not just during Memorial Day observance, but every single day. We provide not only job opportunities but also the mentorship and resources needed to thrive in a civilian career.

TTEC collaborates with several organizations dedicated to supporting veterans and military families, especially of our fallen heroes. Through these partnerships, we contribute to programs that provide education, job training, and mental health resources for veterans. By working together, we amplify our impact and ensure that veterans receive the comprehensive support they deserve. These collaborations enable us to also address the unique challenges veterans face and help them build fulfilling civilian lives.
