Las Vegas – At the 2010 Best Practices Conference – The Top Ranking Performers in the Contact Center World – delegates heard from organizations who run internal incentive schemes to motivate agents/ reps in their contact center.
The presenters included NCS (Singapore), Yapi Kredi Bank (Turkey) and St. George Bank (Australia). The audience heard all presentations and were asked to vote on who is to be named the ‘best in the world’.
NCS was voted no.1 by the audience in a tough contest based on the information and questions and answer session.
NCS Pte. Ltd is a third-party contact centre providing outsourcing solutions to corporate and government agencies in Singapore. Just like other Contact Centres, they face the usual challenges of staff attrition and adherence issues. As part of their continuous effort to improve our staff retention rate and manage the day-to-day staff attendance and performance issues, they have created and designed an innovative incentive scheme. It has improved staff morale, enhanced staff motivation and rewarded their good performers.
The delegates heard about the scheme developed by NCS that engaged the hearts , minds and excited their staff – they introduced DRIVE and improved efficiency, achiever rates, lowered attrition and lowered absenteeism.
Presenter, Yap Hong Eng, Manager, Customer Care Operations, NCS Pte. Ltd told us "It was my first ever participation in the Contact Center World Awards and it was absolutely fantastic! The whole experience was so different from the "usual" conference where you heard a lot of "sales talk", but over at the CCW conference, you get to hear from the industry experts around the world which gave me lots of learning opportunities over the best practices, creative ideas and cultural exchanges. Most of all, I get to meet really nice people and made some good friends along the way."
He added "Having to win the Gold Award and Rank #1 in the world in my presenting category under Best Incentive Scheme signify a key milestone for our team as we have put in lots of thoughts and efforts on things that we do to shape positive behavior in our Contact Centre. The conference was great and gave us lots of insights on best practices and it really impressed us a lot with the ideas, innovation and passions from the contact centre industry around the world. Very good job done by you and the team! Kudos!"
