About SYKES Australia 

SYKES Australia is a digital marketing, customer service, and technical support provider to brands around the world. SYKES is a global leader in providing support, comprised of a diverse, fun-loving, and energetic team within a vibrant workplace. 

SYKES Australia opened its first contact center in George Street with only 125 employees. Focused heavily on outbound telemarketing, the company spent its first years helping a global client enter the Australian market. 

Seeing progress and growth, SYKES Australia began to scale, exploring more services and fostering new partnerships locally and worldwide. Today, the company has created its own mark in the field, continuously providing support for big global companies and leading Australian brands. Operations also expanded across New South Wales and Queensland. 

SYKES Australia’s COVID-19 Response

After recuperating from the relentless bushfires, SYKES Australia faced the coronavirus crisis with resilience and strength. The employee-centric company put its people’s mental health and well being above all, implementing a work-at-home (WAH) solution for its biggest client in just days. To support this transition to WAH and employees through COVID, SYKES developed new communications channels, tools, and support packs to assist both staff and leaders in the new normal. 

SYKES provided consistent support to its clients in the face of adversity and fear. This was made possible with the culture SYKES has established and the talented team whose character shone like a bright light of hope, confidence, and strength in trying times. 

SYKES Australia won a Bronze Stevie for COVID-19 Response Categories - Most Valuable Response by a Customer Service Team in the 2021 Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service®.
