Employees of the Month – April 2021

Harmanpreet Singh, Tier I Technical Support Specialist – Canada

Since joining the team in February 2020, Harmanpreet has always shown respect to his coworkers when assisting with day-to-day issues and has been patient and understanding when teaching and working with our new Technical Support hires.

“Harmanpreet has taken the lead role with our two new hire classes in nesting. Our new hires started with CIBC and he has been key part of their success, working with them each day to answer questions in nesting chat, holding end of day meetings to discuss the days calls and more difficult questions and concepts, and providing his knowledge and experience to help them learn and grow. He has done an outstanding job!!”

– Sarah Retza, Contact Center Supervisor

Matthew Phillips, Project Coordinator

Matthew has been with Vox Mobile since September 2012, when he started as Technical Support Specialist, owning all Deployment responsibilities in Canada as that part of our business grew. He was promoted to a Project Coordinator role on the Project Management team in March of last year and hit the ground in a full sprint! His vast knowledge of our operations from his years of experience allows him to be able to speak on multiple topics confidently and looks for guidance if it is outside his wheelhouse.

“Matthew has put in an incredible number of hours this month and produced incredible work in crunch time for VPP. His dedication to this project and more importantly to this company is hard to match.”

– Josh Novak, Director, IT & Software Development

Walter Hayes, BI Reporting Analyst

Walter just celebrated his one-year anniversary with Vox in May, and what a first year it has been! He is very concerned about doing good work to give Vox Mobile and our clients everything they are asking. It is obvious that Walter is passionate about his work, as he puts in extra research and self-learning into the tools he works with. He continues to excel here because he cares so much about his own performance and the results he provides to others.

“Walter works tirelessly with great attitude and strives to do good work to help others in the company get their request completed. He deals with changing requirements, scope creep, multiple high-priority items simultaneously and yet, continues to exceed expectations. He is compassionate about helping others succeed in their job and brings a great positive presence to the team.”

– Cort Cable, Senior Manager, Application Support


Rob Dolson, Training Supervisor

Rob joined Vox Mobile in January of 2016 as a Technical Support Specialist.  His great customer service and technical ability saw him succeed quickly and take on responsibilities.  Near the end of that year, Rob was recognized for his hard work with a promotion to Tier 2. In August of 2018, Rob was promoted again to the Training team where he became the first full time Canadian trainer here at Vox.  His instincts and work ethic made a large impact in this role, as he was the only trainer to write specialized presentations for every client he taught. Rob was selected to guide the way forward when Training, Quality and Documentation went through a re-organization in December 2019. When asked to invent a program that would aid us with our average handle time goals, Rob created a wonderful three-part course that ran the 4th quarter of 2020.  Results were dramatic, as we had the best average handle times in the company’s history.  Currently, Rob is crafting and piloting the next generation of refresh training courses and we are all very excited to see them take shape.
