  • Work in conjunction with our Learning and Development team to refine ongoing trainings for our agent teams, as well as with leaders of each credentialing product to ensure adequate dispatch of resources
  • Improve the performance of our business by executing on operational initiatives such as:
    • Workflow evaluation and redesign to reduce error rates and processing times
