Australian Call Centre Report - Workplace Stress Study by CCR, July 1998. AUD$ 545
This is a unique report which is based on interviews with Call Centre Staff, customer service reps, telesales reps & supervisors and managers. Red carefully it identifies the key drivers to stress and of course the main reasons staff burn-out or leave. In my view the findings apply to staff in call centres everywhere and not just Australia, A valuable tool for manager, trainers and HR people in a call centre environment.
