Enhancing your Customer Service and Claim handler recruitment strategy

Written by Simon Benford-Blows

Contact Centres are the frontline of any insurers and the beating heart of their business. Much of an insurer’s success as a company depends on the day-to-day interactions that take place with customers over the phone, via email or webchat and as such customer service and claims handlers are one of the most vital parts of its operation.
This is why it is crucial that Contact Centre Recruitment is taken seriously. Businesses rely on contact centre staff to retain customers, provide outstanding service, and as a result it ultimately grows the business.
 
Research confirms what on-the-ground experience has probably told you already: it’s a tough market for recruitment right now and circa 70% of companies are experiencing difficulties in hiring staff.
