What does an Operations Manager really do? Think of yourself as a leader and the master of your department, so not just anyone is qualified for this role! Here at TaskUs we make sure we get the best of the best, after all, we are a ridiculously good company so we make sure our employees are top notch. Come on now, we need your full attention because it’s time to imagine what it’s like being an Operations Manager.
Imagine yourself going to work with one thing on your mind: that in most companies, it’s all about the KPIs but in TaskUs it’s all about solving business problems through innovation. As you tackle your new tasks for the day, you know that it will all lead to one thing that your department believes in: to provide the best possible customer experience to your clients.
As Operations Manager, you are also responsible for making sure that KPIs are being met consistently. You need to come up with ways in which to effectively make each employee reach their best potential. With this, you must also be creative because you need to devise effective plans on how to make each employee reach their target. As a leader, you must also gain the trust and respect of your employees because let’s face it -- how can you lead when people don’t believe you? You need to be able to reach out to them, drop by their workstations, have short chit-chats, and make them feel important. You need to be able to identify their strengths and weaknesses, take advantage of them and assign them tasks that will help them work on their weaknesses and showcase their talents. This way, you are able to manage relationships better and develop people at the same time.

Creating a Culture of Awareness and Prevention:
TaskUs believes in being transparent with our new employees about their job duties and the possible impact. Some of our campaigns include disturbing content. Examples of these types of material may include but are not limited to:
- Child exploitation and abuse
- Animal torture
- Gang Violence
- Hate Speech
As a content moderator it is important for you to know the potential risks related to this type of work. While TaskUs is focused on employee wellness by having counselors on-site, resiliency programming, and other wellness initiatives, exposure to graphic and disturbing content is unavoidable. Some individuals with a sensitivity to viewing graphic or disturbing content may be at risk for developing distress, mental health symptoms, or, in rare instances, Secondary Traumatic Stress based on the content they are viewing.
TaskUs reserves the right to reassign content moderators to other TaskUs projects based on staffing needs, employee performance, and other considerations.
In order to help create a community that is safe for all employees, the Resiliency and Wellness Team takes an active role in the primary prevention of mental health concerns through direct practice efforts, e-learning, skills training, and outreach efforts to the TaskUs community. Our programs seek to raise awareness about psychological issues, challenge ideas that contribute to social inequity, disempowerment, and discrimination, as well as the underlying structures that support them. In addition, our programs empower employees to find and use their voices in a healthy and productive way.
