2023 Survey Contact Centres Not Supporting Vulnerable Customers

358

In our What Contact Centres Are Doing Right Now (2023 Edition) survey, we asked ‘Is Your Call Centre Doing Enough to Support Vulnerable Customers?’ and the results were worse than expected.

As of 31st July 2023, the UK’s financial regulator, the FCA, introduced a new Consumer Duty, which placed a greater emphasis on the fair treatment of vulnerable customers.

Therefore, it was concerning to see that almost half of respondents seemed to be unaware of (don’t know – 26.5%), or unprepared for (no – 18.5%) the July deadline when the What Contact Centres Are Doing Right Now survey was open for responses.
