NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas (September 07, 2022) – TaskUs (Nasdaq: TASK), an award-winning provider of outsourced digital services and next-generation customer experience to fast-growing technology companies, was recognized at the 2022 International Business Awards® for its innovative, people-first approach to employee well-being during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The company secured two gold awards for being the Most Exemplary Employer and having the Most Valuable Corporate Response under the COVID-19 Response Category. Judges cited TaskUs’ forward-leaning decisions to relocate thousands of teammates around the world to work remotely through its Work@Home model, Cirrus, and its industry-first Wellness and Resiliency department that keeps its entire workforce both physically and mentally healthy amid a global health crisis.
In addition, the company also received two silver awards for Company of the Year – Business or Professional Services – Large and Achievement in Customer Satisfaction, as well as a bronze for Achievement in International Expansion.
“Empowering and caring for our people has always been and will continue to be the key to our success,” shared Jarrod Johnson, TaskUs’ Chief Customer Officer. “These awards are a testament to our people-first philosophy: we keep our teammates happy and safe so they can set up our clients for success.”
As pandemic-related lockdowns hampered company operations worldwide, TaskUs launched Cirrus in March 2020—a secure cloud-based differentiator and Work@Home solution that allowed employees to continue providing customer support from the comfort of their homes. Cirrus features round-the-clock virtual training, knowledge management tools, and workspace monitoring that enabled the company to expand its workforce and help its clients scale further amidst the pandemic.
