I have had the honor to share a variety of experiences and ideas with other CEOs as a member of the Practitioners’ Council and look forward to the opportunity for continued lively exchanges as Council Member Emeritus.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 20, 2011
Telisimo International Corporation, a Customer Communication CenterSM providing traditional and enhanced call center services for U.S., Canadian and Latin American companies, is excited to announce that President/CEO Linda Hobbs was selected Council Member Emeritus for The Great Game of Business.
The Great Game of Business provides training and coaching services on the best practices of high involvement workforce planning and open-book management. It was created in 1983 when 13 managers scraped together $100,000 in cash, borrowed $8.9 million and transformed a failing division of International Harvester into one of the most successful and competitive companies in America.
To date they have shared the principles of open-book management and hosted more than 4,000 companies around the world, including Southwest Airlines, Harley-Davidson and Whole Foods Market. They have been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, MSNBC, and INC. magazine.
“In this competitive global marketplace, The Great Game of Business has afforded Telisimo a distinctive foundation on which to build a unique business that unleashes the entrepreneur inside every employee,” Hobbs said. “I have had the honor to share a variety of experiences and ideas with other CEOs as a member of the Practitioners’ Council and look forward to the opportunity for continued lively exchanges as Council Member Emeritus.”
Over a decade ago, Telisimo embraced and adapted the practice of Open-Book Management to its business, sharing financial information with employees, teaching them important paths to business success and sharing the rewards of their mutual efforts.
Telisimo has evolved from a support company for the U.S. paging industry to an international operator of Customer Communication CentersSM, serving as a gateway of communication between its customers and the marketplace.
Telisimo’s extraordinary success story is one of welcoming change and adapting to thrive. Over the past 20 years, they have built a company that embraces challenges while staying true to its core value of respecting and encouraging others. In today’s fast-paced global economy, companies are recognizing that outstanding service is the number one reason for customer loyalty. Telisimo helps its customers achieve this competitive advantage. Telisimo provides a full range of IT-enabled office support solutions, including front- and back-office services (customer care, accounting, human resources and technology), social media marketing and a new line of process-improvement tools. They continue to expand their global reach and offerings to forward their corporate mission: to help visionary companies streamline costs and optimize quality, adapt as they have and distinguish themselves on the international stage.
