Almost a year after our first hiring campaign, it was time to launch a new one tailored specifically to the needs of our Customer Care teams. What prompted the direction of the new campaign was largely the current IT services landscape in Bulgaria and our stand against the commoditization of workforce in local outsourcing centers. But here’s the whole story.
During the last few years SiteGround has been going through an impressive and steady growth. For the first three quarters of 2016 only, we have hired more than 100 new people and the number of our employees went well over 400. Among all these amazing new SiteGrounders there is one group, that is especially interesting. Their welcome packs were sent to 10 different countries, where we have never had employees before. They have tons of relevant experience: one of them has been doing web hosting for more than 14 years! And they all have been Site5 top performing customer service representatives. No doubt we are quite excited to have them with us, because the story how they joined our team is inspiring and also because what they bring to our company is of a special value.
Our Top Technical Support Rep, with the highest customer satisfaction rating in the past month, is Daniela Ivanova. She is a Level 1 Technical Support Agent, who takes care of the customer support tickets reported through our User Area. To be in top shape to handle tough technical cases, she keeps on her nightstand books about Linux and web programming, along with Harry Potter. Check out her full interview.
This month our Top Customer Care award goes to Nayden Naydenov. If you’ve spoken with him, you must have noticed that he is a really friendly soul and his knowledge and calmness allows him to explain even complicated stuff in simple language. Work aside, Nayden is a die-hard gamer who also takes interest in politics and always keeps up to date on the latest social media trends.
“Everyone is creative. Everyone is welcome.” This is part of the manifesto of CreativeMornings–a global monthly breakfast lecture series for the creative community. Their motto in the spirit of our Community Series is just part of the reason why we love and support our local CM chapter. It is also what inspired our joint #CMCreativeTravels campaign that will take one person from our community to a CreativeMornings event of their choice anywhere in the world. But first, a little background.
This month we are happy to introduce to you Georgi Ganchev, who is part of our Technical Support team. He says he’s there not only on duty, but with his heart. He loves helping others, gaining knowledge and taking part in various adventurous activities outside the office. Check out what he told us about himself in the interview.
Last year, after a massive growth in the number of SiteGround employees, we held several separate team building events instead of one mega gathering. You may have heard all about our fancy beachside customer care and tech team buildings. But what you missed was an almost business-like meetup of our Marketing, Dev and Creative teams, where we brainstormed ideas about the perfect format of the next SiteGround team gathering. Not surprisingly - brainstorming doesn’t sound as exciting as jumping off a yacht, does it? One year later, however, now that we saw the idea born there come to life, there is not a single doubt that it was worth every splash we missed.
Doroteya is one of our happy, social and friendly girls, part of the Customer Care Team. Our customers surely notice that she is a pro with hosting matters. What you may not know is that she’s also a glam mom, great with constructing Legos and an avid traveller. Apart from her lovely little boy, you can now find out what else gives her energy and pleasure in her daily life.
