Contact Centre Homeworking – Webinars Series
Last year’s Covid driven mass move to homeworking has been well publicised, with many contact centre workers and their employers having experienced both the benefits and pitfalls of working from home. This urgent and necessary rapid drive to homeworking has meant that many organisations were forced into cutting corners, especially in relation to payment security, data compliance and working standards. Although the crisis is still very much upon us, many businesses are now starting to evaluate the long-term benefits of homeworking and the impact it may have on their staff, service delivery and bottom line.
In this webinar series, we are asking leading contact centre experts in the fields of payment security, data compliance, productivity, wellbeing and technology…the question…how do businesses create a sustainable, secure and productive homebased contact centre service?
