STARTEK Celebrates Its 30-year Anniversary in True Brand Warrior Fashion

Thirty years ago, STARTEK was founded in Greeley, Colorado, on a simple belief that with hard work and passion for what we do, we could create the maximum value for our stakeholders. Our focus has always been on delivering high-quality solutions to meet our clients’ needs. Though our focus hasn’t changed much since 1987, our company sure has. Today, we have more than 15,000 employees and 21 locations present in five countries.  We have also continued to grow financially and in our service offerings—all while fostering a corporate culture that brings measurable value and thought leadership to the clients we serve. 

Every day, our employees are on the front lines promoting and protecting our clients’ brands with every conversation. These Brand Warriors are loyal and responsive to our clients, and STARTEK values the contributions of each and every one of our employees. That’s why In 2014, we created the Warriors in Need (WIN) Foundation, a 501c3 organization with the sole purpose of providing assistance to our employees in their time of need. The program is 100% funded through employee payroll deductions and is administered without any overhead to the program itself.

In honor of our 30-year anniversary, we wanted to celebrate our company’s great milestone, while also creating greater awareness for the WIN Foundation by challenging the organization to raise $30,000 in 30 days. In every country and community where STARTEK operates, the 30 for 30 campaign raised money for our employees facing extraordinary life events that can suddenly turn their lives upside down. To date, total donations to the WIN Foundation as part of the 30 for 30 campaign have topped $34,300.

Warriors in Need: Pie for the #WIN

“It is the right thing to do to help our fellow Brand Warriors in their time of need.  Over the last several years, the WIN Foundation has assisted numerous employees across the globe in their time of crisis. We want to make sure that when our employees face an extraordinary life event that turns their world completely upside down, it is just a bit more manageable thanks to their fellow Brand Warriors. It is in our corporate DNA to help those around us, and we won't ever stop doing the right thing for our employees."

Chad Carlson, STARTEK CEO

We thank each of our employees for their hard work and commitment to promoting and protecting our clients’ brands. Our Brand Warriors continue to “bring it” every day for our clients and for their coworkers across the globe. To all Brand Warriors who have generously supported the WIN Foundation during the 30 for 30 campaign, we give a heartfelt THANK YOU.
