  1. Award-Winning Training Ecosystem

TSI’s world-class Training Programs have been recognized by Training Magazine as among the Top 10 Global Training Programs for three consecutive years (2020 – 9th place , 2021 – 8th place, 2022 – 2nd place).

TSI’s Talent Development, Training and Knowledge Management teams serve as a strategic business partner for our clients by partnering to create innovative, and cost-effective learning programs that yield measurable performance results.

We begin by establishing a detailed understanding of our clients’ needs, values and business goals to create solutions that are strategically aligned with our clients’ brand. Whether they prefer to provide their own content, or they would like our support in drafting content, we partner with clients to design cost-effective, interactive and engaging learning experiences that resonate with the learner.

The partnership with each client does not end once a Training Program is developed; the Training Team continues to monitor KPI’s and meets with each business unit’s leadership on a monthly basis to assess the need for reinforcement training and/or updates to the existing Program. Using the AGILE model, the Training team collaborates with clients and Operations Leadership to analyze call calibrations, customer satisfaction scores, service levels and scorecards for each client to ensure that Training Programs are carefully customized to impact performance.

TSI has decades of experience supporting the utility industry including companies that provide service in “moratorium states” where headcount fluctuates seasonally by as much as 30% and hot states, such as the south where volume fluctuates significantly in the summer. We also partner with several retail companies who have seasonal fluctuations throughout the year, in some cases by 200 –300%.

When it comes to TSI’s utility clients, our leaders and employees don’t just service a Program, they become subject matter experts who are committed to client success. As an extension of the client’s brand, TSI becomes a trusted business partner,  offering the flexibility to develop creative solutions, not just for staffing but for global performance needs. TSI’s teams are quick to adapt to process changes and partner with clients to promote continuous improvement.

Most recently, TSI was the only vendor selected by one of our largest Utility clients to manage a high volume of weather-related outages in the Mid-West.
