News : Call Centre's Flexible Way to Keep Workers Engaged
Plymouth, England, August 13, 2014 -- A Plymouth call centre is offering flexible work hours with a twist – staff can go home after making just one sale.
Workers at Usave, which has its Plymouth base at Burrington Way, Honicknowle, now have the opportunity to complete a single sale, which may only take an hour, then leave work with a full day's pay.
Mike Reynard, marketing manager at Usave, said: "You can choose which shifts you want to do – you can come in earlier and leave earlier, come in later and stay later, and earn different wages,"
"If you get a deal through within one hour, you can choose to go back home on a full day's pay, which is unbelievable; or stay and earn commission on other deals."
The company hopes the new flexible working scheme will attract all types of employees, including part-time workers and students.
"It's going to get more people working for us and it's good for the people of Plymouth. We've had some good interest and obviously we are trying to help as much as we can," said Mr Reynard.
"We are looking to take on as many people as we can – if 150 people turned up tomorrow and said they wanted to start work, we would take them on tomorrow, which for Plymouth is amazing.
"We benefit because people who want to go home early really try hard in the first couple of hours, and then go home."
Usave launched at the beginning of January as a re-brand of the Money Group.
The company employs about 200 staff in Truro. It opened its Plymouth office, under the Money Group banner, in late 2012 with plans to take on about 300 staff.
When the multi-million-pound turnover company re-launched, it also switched its main focus from offering debt management solutions to providing the public with advice and services to help them make household budgets go further.
The business now aims to save people money on financial products, utilities and insurances.
The new business model is intended to offer a more user-friendly alternative to comparison websites.
It generates its revenue from the service providers it recommends.
Anyone who is interested can contact Usave through the company's website.
