Alorica expanding in El Paso - El Paso Inc.

Monday, September 05, 2016

The company acquired West Corporation’s call centers for $275 million in January 2015, adding $580 million in revenue. The El Paso centers are at Belvidere and Westwind on the Westside and at 1440 Goodyear on the Eastside.With the acquisition of EGS in June, Alorica suddenly became a $2.3 billion company with 92,000 employees worldwide, making it the nation’s largest customer service provider and the third largest in the world.“I tell people we’re a $2 billion company you never heard of,” Muche said. “We just continue to grow and our vision is around this concept of making lives better.“Not only do we want to take care of our clients, solve their problems and make their lives better, we also want to make lives better for our employees and the communities where we work.”Muche said that because the company services nine different industries and the biggest brands in the U.S., it takes a different approach in hiring.That is where the changes Alorica has made inside the former West call center on Westwind come home for new employees and veterans of West’s hard-edged operation.Muche didn’t flinch at the suggestion that Alorica is trying to create a workplace culture like Google’s for employees who might not be expecting fun, perks and even cash assistance when the chips are down.Helping outMaking Lives Better with Alorica happens to be the name of the nonprofit charity the company establishes in every community where it operates to help employees, their families and friends in a crisis.The money comes from employees who give to the nonprofit through payroll deductions, make one-time donations or participate in on-site fundraisers.The help Making Lives Better provides can be substantial.On a tour of Alorica’s Westside operation last week, El Paso Inc. met several employees with stories to tell, including Guillermo “Willy” Robles, who found himself a single father of three after his sister died of cancer. When he couldn’t pay for her funeral, he asked for help.“I was very surprised,” Robles s

The incredible side of Yankees prospect Clint Frazier that was a secret until now - NJ.com

Monday, August 15, 2016

These tough times started right after Clint was drafted by the Indians fifth overall on June 6, signed for $3.5 million eight days later and then headed to Goodyear, Ariz., to begin his pro career in the Arizona League."I think Clint had been gone about a week and it happened," Kim Frazier said. "It was devastating. We had to tell everybody, 'You can't let him know.' He'd just graduated high school in May. Life-changing stuff. He'd never been away from home, then he's far away and he does have a heart for other people. I knew that he would be concerned for us, so we said, 'We can't let him know because he's got to concentrate.'"Clint didn't find out about his father's job loss and the family's new round of financial hardship until his baseball season, and he was upset about not being told."I'm part of this family and I need to know what's going on," he told his mother.Eighteen-year-old Clint immediately called his financial advisor, then the next day sat down with his mother and announced, "I have made arrangements for a chunk of money to be given to you all.""No," his mother said."It's already done," Clint replied.His

Former Goodyear CEO Stanley Gault dies - Tire Business

Monday, July 04, 2016

WOOSTER, Ohio (June 30, 2016) — Stanley C. Gault, former head of both Goodyear and Rubbermaid Inc., died June 29 at age 90.Although he was chairman of Goodyear for just five years, from 1991-96, Mr. Gault is credited with helping Goodyear shift from a manufacturing-driven company to one with a market-back consumer focus.“The commitment to helping our customers grow their businesses started with Stan, Goodyear said in a statement. "Emphasizing the importance of sales and marketing in our company started with Stan.“Above all, Stan Gault realized the strength of the Goodyear brand began with its dedicated people. He was the first to make everyone who worked at Goodyear feel part of the company by referring to us as ‘associates.’ ”Mr. Gault also helped overhaul the company through instituting a Total Quality Culture.“We accept the principle that regardless of how well we think, we’re doing things today, we will need to find ways to do those same things better in the future,” Mr. Gault said in an interview at the time he announced his retirement from Goodyear
