Sharon Hamilton, Director of Operations, and an almost 30 year employee of Extend Communications, has been recognized by the Canadian Call Management Association (CAM-X) with the prestigious ‘Barbara Bradbury Pay-It- Forward Mentoring Award’.
A group of 3 senior co-workers joined efforts to nominate Sharon to CAM-X, the national trade association of the telephone answering and call centre industry. Nominators were asked to describe how the award nominee had enriched their personal and professional life, how they had affected positive change in their workplace and community, and how they continue to grow, and inspire others towards growth and continuous improvement. Sharon is just the 3rd person to receive this Award, and accepted it at the national CAM-X conference in Charleston, SC. Full details are available here:

On the heels of National Disaster Preparedness Week, Extend Communications today put one of its disaster plans to the test, and evacuated staff to a backup call centre location across town, completely unannounced. Unlike a normal “fire drill” that might see staff hanging out in a parking lot for a few minutes before returning to work, Extend wanted to simulate a major disaster by re-locating staff. (more…)
Extend has once again launched its Santa Hotline 1-855-HEY-SANTA. This free community service offers children the opportunity to call Santa’s Workshop and speak to one of his Elves. Santa is very busy this time of year, so his dedicated team of Elves talk to children about what is on their Christmas List, and pass the messages on to Santa. The hotline runs 24/7 until December 24th, and is open for any child who would like to call. A big thanks to all our staff for supporting this project each year!
