Article : Do Home Agents Really Work?

It has been several years since the initial push for remote agents started, and even though the technology has much improved and the advantages are numerous, there is still debate among many companies whether the at-home agent is the wave of the future. The question was posed to some industry professionals, and these are their answers…

Steve McArthur
Head Of Service Delivery
Prudential Corporation Asia
Hong Kong

"For the finance industry I don't believe this works. The setup costs are extremely high and changes within this industry means that home workers are requested to come into the office for training on a regular basis. Also, to ensure that the agents are properly monitored and giving out the correct information can also be a difficulty."

John Gelmini
Telephone And E Mail Strategy Manager
Essex County Council
United Kingdom

"Home based agents work in a culture which is focused on outcomes rather than senior management being able to see people at work.Seeing people at work means being able to physically see them rather than watching them over a webcam link."

Guy de la Haye
Commercial specialist

"Yes it can work, but you need to have a realtime view on the homeworkers' performance. If you have a good quality monitoring system it's worth making a business case.

Positive: It attracts new people to work at a Contact Center.

Negative: Of course you will save some money because of reduced travel costs, but you shouldn't underestimate the costs for a healthy work environment at home and adequate internet access at home."

Nuon is an energy company whose 6,000 employees serve around three million consumers, businesses and organisations in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.

Ken Persson
Nordic Homesourcing AB

"I strongly believe in Home Based agent, so much I started a company recently focusing on delivering Homesourcing solutions to the Swedish market. The good is: lower cost, larger base for recruitment, environment friendly, technology is available to support remote management of the workforce. The bad is that you can't convert in-house agents to home based agents as most agents will not fit for the job."

Stephen Diss
Call Center - Operations Manager
Fisher & Paykel
New Zealand

"Home agents have worked quite well for us but only for shifts that have very low volume i.e. nightshifts, Sunday evenings etc. When we do give people the option to work from home they have already had a proven track record of good reliable performance. It is seen as a reward."

Michael Muldoon
Customer Service Manager

"I don't know if home agents really work, but I suspect it isn't a solution on its own. That said, we shouldn't be afraid to try it out if it works for some people some of the time."

About Diageo

Diageo is a premium drinks business offering spirits, wine and beer.
Chiaki Hishinuma

"The Good: for outbound work and countable works with low security such as list leaning and order taking, etc. The Bad: for work which requires high security."

Arnob Bhattacharya
Lead Consultant

"Home agents as a concept can prove to be the ultimate catalyst for the contact center industry, struggling with costs, to find a way of reducing its overheads whilst ensuring the agility that the customer demands. However, the challenges for deploying home agents vary not only by individual work habits, and aptitude but also by geography and social structures. A very high degree of focus is required from the organization in training and creating a degree of ownership amongst its employees for the home agents to be successful and self managed. Unless the value of work is realized by the employee and owned, the concept can only drag along until maybe economic compulsions start throwing up chunks of people who will ensure that home based work is as efficiently done in the interest of securing their employment itself."

"Actually ECCO is now in the elementary phase of applying home agents concept using our CISCO telephony system, also ECCO started to educate the candidates of the importance and the urge of working with this concept especially for students, housewives, etc."

Graciela Evia
Directora de RRHH Sudamérica

"We do not have agents working from home, but I believe that the success of this will depend on tasks to be developed, resources provided and agents' profiles."
