FedEx Express Canada Achieves Overall Platinum Contact Center Employer of Choice® Certification

First Multi-Site Operation to Attain Distinction

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 20, 2009) - CCEOC Inc. announced today that all three FedEx Express Canada Customer Service Centres have achieved the prestigious Contact Center Employer of Choice® designation for 2009. This is the sixth year in a row FedEx Express Canada has participated in the program and achieved certification. The Montreal customer service centre has achieved Gold level designation while Mississauga and Vancouver have reached Platinum.

The Contact Center Employer of Choice® (CCEOC) program has enabled FedEx Express Canada contact centres to enhance public perception, build exceptional work environments, and attract, retain and engage high-performing, culturally-aligned employees. By targeting the key recommendations outlined in the CCEOC Summary Reporting, FedEx Express Canada has experienced significant stress reduction, increased employee satisfaction, increased customer satisfaction and reduced turnover. As a result of their success, FedEx Express Canada Customer Service Centres have become the global benchmark for measuring FedEx contact centres worldwide.

"It's not hard to believe why people really like to work at FedEx Express Canada's customer service department. Their culture of support, respect, pride and commitment demonstrates that people are the most important part of the operation," said Jeff Doran, President of CCEOC, Inc. "FedEx Express Canada continues to amaze me in their continuous drive to be a better workplace. I didn't think their scores in the CCEOC program could get much higher, but they have. They improved their scores in every category in the CCEOC assessment. They are now the first multi-site operation to achieve a Platinum ranking in the designation. Being recognized as a certified CCEOC re-enforces FedEx Express Canada's customer service division as a preferred employer and one of the best organizations to work for in the country."

"Each day, FedEx Express Canada employees strive to make our customers' experiences outstanding. FedEx Express Canada is committed to providing quality customer service and has earned a reputation for being an innovative market leader in all areas of our operation," said Patsy Bertoia, managing director, FedEx Express Canada Customer Service. "This accolade is a direct result of the engagement of our employees who understand the unique needs of those we serve locally as well as globally."

The Contact Center Employer of Choice® award is the industry standard for recognizing and branding people-centric contact centers. Through a proprietary assessment, a contact center can quickly determine if it meets the qualification standards. A center can achieve a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum ranking. Once the designation is achieved, the contact center is profiled on the official CCEOC corporate web-site, receives a prestigious framed certificate and is promoted through various print and electronic news channels. The CCEOC designation is valid for 12 months.
