Slang in the Call Centre?

Topic Views - 312

What is the current view on using slang in the call centre?
In evaluating tone in a call slang is traditionally marked down. How do we strike the right balance? Do we allow all slang? What is in? What is out? What is the right level of formality?

If you are dealing with stressed customers and problems, then err on the formal side.
