Moment of Truth: Confident to Succeed

Our actions, or inaction, will define us. We are the key to our own success. During 2021 we focused on unlocking opportunities and the part each of us can play in helping to shape the future. For 2022 we want to focus you on your Moment of Truth and being confident to succeed.

Looking back on 2021

2021 was our year for Unlocking Opportunities. Doing more of what we do well is a great opportunity that we don’t always fully exploit.

As we come to the end of 2021 it is time to look back on what we have done well, so that in 2022 we can do it again only better.

Employee Lifecycle, Shrinkage and Performance Management

What are the top 3 challenges for contact centres? Speaking to a large a sample of our 150 member organisations, we have identified the following three:

  • Recruitment and retention
  • High absence and other shrinkage factors
  • Performance Management

Standards and Business Accreditation

The Standards programme is designed as a journey of improvement leading towards accreditation for Planning, Insight and Quality teams and functions. Whether you are at the start of your journey, wanting to understand the fundamentals of best practice, or an established team wanting to become best-in-class this programme is you.

Automation for analysts

Robotics, or automation, is something that can deliver huge benefits and savings. But the term robotics can sometimes be confusing. When I hear the word robot, my mind immediately jumps to Star Wars and R2D2 and C3PO. Others may think of the mechanical arms on factory production lines. In South Africa a robot is a traffic light. The likelihood is that none of these play a part in our roles.
