The TED@Work Customer Success function partners closely with internal TED teams and TED@Work client organizations, to help achieve business goals and ensure client organizations get the most value from TED@Work. The TED@Work Customer Success (CS) Team acts as trusted advisors to empower & enable organizations to use TED@Work within their organizational context to spark learning, inspire new ways of working, and transform culture.

A Customer Success Specialist for TED@Work supports a portfolio of customer accounts, made up of organizations who have purchased TED@Work as an enterprise-wide learning solution and who represent a global portfolio of Fortune 500 companies and midsize organizations. They are instrumental in ensuring the success of TED@Work clients in terms of integration, engagement, and impact. 

The CS Specialist is accountable for supporting Customer Success Managers (CSMs), who partner with the client to define their TED launch, implementation, internal marketing, and impact measurement strategies. In collaboration with the broader TED@Work team, they will support the overall success of client partnerships and execution of these strategies across the lifecycle of a contract. This includes supporting the CSM(s) in providing strategic guidance through data & best practice insights, scheduling and holding quarterly business reviews, and seamlessly guiding clients through the unique situations that arise.

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
