Jeff is especially proud of our global corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts that are, again, unparalleled in the BPO industry. Not only do thousands of our team members donate their hearts and hands building entire schools and villages from the ground up, but also, so do our clients, many of whom join together with us in our CSR events in a shared sense of social purpose. It is these deeper partnerships between our team and our clients that we aspire to create at TELUS International, all while making a meaningful difference in the communities where we work, live and raise our families.
