Genesys Sustainability Ambassadors

Genesys Sustainability Ambassadors have taken initial steps to integrate sustainable practices into their behaviours — and they actively engage fellow employees to do the same. Here are a few examples of our Sustainability Ambassador community in action:

Measuring your consumption creates awareness and saves energy and money.

Ethics and artificial intelligence: Putting principles into practice

Genesys uses artificial intelligence (AI) to deliver empathetic experiences for customers and employees at scale. AI and automation tools make contact centre agents’ jobs easier — growing customer loyalty and boosting revenue along the way. Over the past year, new forms of AI, including large language models (LLMs), have received significant interest because of the exciting possibilities and ethical questions they present. Genesys is committed to ensuring our AI technology is built, used and applied in ways that are responsible and fair.

In 2022, we formed a broader AI and Ethics Roundtable, representing teams who create our AI models, including data scientists, researchers and engineers. The roundtable also includes experts from our marketing, product management and legal departments, whose main objective is to communicate our AI Ethics Guidelines to partners, customers and employees. We have evolved our guidelines to align with our core values. Our updated guidelines include:

Building on the work of the AI and Ethics Roundtable in 2021 and 2022, we have evolved the Genesys AI Ethics Guidelines to align with our core values. We believe it’s critical that the endless value creation opportunities AI offers are considered together with empathy toward users (customers and agents). We also believe that applications of AI must provide a sufficient level of transparency, measure and reduce bias where possible, and build on privacy as a core principle.

Our efforts toward ethical AI resulted in the creation of a cross-functional Genesys AI Ethics Board, which is responsible for the Genesys AI governance framework and tasked with ensuring that we, as a company, are ahead of the rapidly evolving AI regulations worldwide. This proactive approach has proven very effective, especially in light of very recent growth in popularity of LLMs through applications like ChatGPT, which raise many key questions about AI Ethics, handling personal data and explainability.

Using our products for good   image

Using our products for good

One way we have a positive impact on society is through helping people in acute crises get the help they need, when they need it. That includes the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC), the UK’s leading children’s charity. NSPCC relies on 1,300 part-time volunteers across 12 service centres, who come online at different times of the week. Its legacy infrastructure made it difficult to manage these short-shift work patterns, offer the digital channels children preferred, integrate case management and other back-office systems, and answer every call as volume increased.

Today, a Genesys™ contact centre seamlessly blends calls, email and web chat. It also integrates with Zoom recording and a Microsoft Dynamics CRM system, and ensures the right people are in the right place at the right time to help.

Supporting Inclusive Communities

Our employee-led inclusion groups create and foster supportive communities within the workplace. These groups come together to promote a common cause, build community, and increase cultural awareness across our company. Our inclusion groups are:
