The Culture of SYKES: A Message From Founder John Sykes

John and Chuck Sykes

The whole idea of impact sourcing is doing good work, with good people and for a good cause.

When he started this company, my dad’s vision was to shape experiences and build opportunities through the simple act of helping people. Now, in my many years at SYKES, I have seen that play out in many ways: helping our customers, creating jobs and being on the ground floor of innovation. At the end of the day, if we take care of our employees, we take care of our brand partners. And if we take care of our brand partners, we can give back to our communities. And that is where our strength lies — in helping people, one caring interaction at a time.

SYKES’ Impact Hub initiative lives and breathes to help communities in need prosper. Whether that need is due to cultural shifts or simply a lack of opportunity, we’ve found that all it takes for people to thrive is a chance. We offer that chance by strategically establishing operations, expertly hiring and training true SYKES representatives, and paying what is often significantly higher than before. Not only does this make a positive impact in financially struggling communities, it cultivates a growing family I could not be happier to be a part of.

Caring interactions don’t stop or end with a phone call. They’re a part of our DNA. As we strive to make a bigger impact on a rapidly changing world, I take pride in the fact that our global impact will be a caring interaction, too.
