You may have noticed a "CPU" designation attached to the profiles of prominent members in our community. CPUs, or Community Power Users, are customers - just like you - who are passionate about sharing knowledge and collaborative problem-solving. They come from all walks of life and bring their unique experiences into the conversation with the goal of helping you get the most out of your TELUS products and services.
Do CPUs Get Perks?
Absolutely. We want our most active members to be well-versed in our products and services beyond what they're subscribed to so we hook them with perks including (but not limited to) the following:
Special Permissions: CPUs are provisioned access to features and exclusive areas of our community that are not available to the general public.
Products/Services Pilots: We want authentic feedback so we enlist the help of our CPUs during product/service development. Some of the very products you use have input from this group.
Access to Internal Team Members: CPUs are a curious bunch so we help them scratch that itch by connecting them to members of our Product Teams.
And More: We made this purposely vague. We want to properly recognize their contributions but it's not always a one-size-fits-all approach. We set up the CPUs to understand our entire portfolio of products and services to help you 🙂.
How do I Become a CPU?
We're always on the look-out for helpful members so we may reach out to recruit you. Alternatively, we may post a link to an application form but we're not currently taking submissions.
