A chart showing how often call centre management take calls

Incredibly, using results from our poll that queried industry professionals, we found that as many as 65% of senior managers have never taken a call on the contact centre floor.

Whilst it is particularly worrying that these managers may be unsure of how to correctly support advisors, as they won’t have a full understanding of the role, some managers do make sure to do their bit on the floor. In fact, 12% of those asked said their senior managers had taken a call that week.
