What effect has the Coronavirus had on your company?
Some operations are impacted by government lockdowns, absenteeism is up slightly (but we're prepared for more), travel restrictions and work-from-home policies are in place. We are very proactive about being prepared and preventative with wellness and cleaning protocols. We have 7 resilience principles that we are living by -- preparedness, redundancy, diversity, modularity, competence, connectedness, and adapability. More clients are asking for us to help them with business continuity with at-home options, automation, messaging, and other new services as well.
If you operate a contact center how have you adapted to manage the pandemic?
Staggered work hours, at-home expansion, temporary sites. Lots of communication.
What recommendations can you share with others who are looking for ideas on what they can do to help manage the effects of the virus on their business?
Put your people first. Be transparent. It's a fluid situation so people understand we don't have all the answers. We have cross-functional calls multiple times a day to stay on top of the situation and maintain the health and safety of our employees above all else.
Before the virus hit, did you have an emergency plan should something like this happen? and if so, did your plans work as expected?
We had business continuity plans in place, but his is much bigger than what we planned for, since it's affecting the entire world at once. Other plans were more location-specific. We started addressing this more than 60 days ago when it was still localized in China, to be as prepared as possible as it spread. We feel that helped us get ahead of it.
