first_img Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. Wage rises not enough to keep staff in call centresOn 13 Nov 2001 in Personnel Today Nearly half of all employers in the call centre sector are experiencingproblems with high staff turnover, a new report claims. The Call Centre 2001 reward and retention report reveals that average staff turnoverin the sector is 18 per cent, but one in 10 employers admits to losing almosthalf their staff each year. The majority of employers surveyed in the study for the Call CentreAssociation Research Institute and Industrial Relations Services report staffturnover difficulties, despite frontline salary increases of around 10 percent. Report editor Philip Pearson argues that the problem cannot be resolvedthrough wages alone and that HR departments must look at the overall package. “Pay is part of the answer, but it is only a part. It’s much morecomplex than that and firms must start to win commitment from their staff.Companies that do that provide employees with a good range of benefits inaddition to pay, as well as training and feedback from management,” hesaid. “The strategic HR issues are to do with getting the remuneration andreward packages right. It’s also about the way work routines are organised andthere are concerns about the opportunities to progress within the callcentres,” he added. The report highlights a broad range of factors, which are driving the highturnover rate including a lack of progression, repetitive work, high pressureand a tough labour market. “I think the HR function within the industry is learning a great deal aboutbest practice, but we need to inform HR about the key priorities. The HR sectorwithin the industry is keen to learn and is looking at ways to spread bestpractice,” added Pearson. The survey covered 143 employers, operating 331 call and contact centres inthe UK with a combined workforce of 53,570 staff. Ross Wigham last_img read more

‘Thank you just doesn’t seem like enough’ Community steps up to help family displaced by fire

first_img“I don’t know what the words are, I don’t know if there are any words thank you just doesn’t seem like enough,” she said. “We just need to give a huge thank you to everyone for their support, to Kim for starting the gofundme, to our customers.” But after their home was devastated by a late night fire on Monday, April 27 they say they couldn’t have imagined the support they’d receive after a high school friend stepped up to help. (WBNG) — The Rusnak family, owners of Brody’s Pizza in Endicott already knew they had a lot of friends in the neighborhood. The Rusnak’s say they are working on plans to reopen Brody’s Pizza and say they hope to see that happen as soon as next week. Just over a week later that gofundme has raised more than sixteen thousand dollars. Money the Rusnak’s say will help them face the challenge of rebuilding in the midst of a global pandemic. “The schools are amazing for what they’re doing for the kids with the school lunches but maybe the kids might want a couple slices of pizza one day instead of a school lunch,” said Melissa of decision to offer the lunches. The family began the COVID-19 crisis by stepping up to provide free school lunches for kids in the community before they were forced to temporarily close Brody’s Pizza. “It’s been difficult as far as furniture shopping and trying to find mattresses and beds with the limited places that are open I’d say it’s been difficult to say the least,” said Jason Rusnak. “We’ve been open a little over a year and we have a very strong customer base here it’s a small community,” said Melissa Rusnak. “Come see us when we open back up. We’ll get there.” “Our seven year old took it the hardest, at that age it’s hard to understand that your treasures can be replaced,” Melissa said. They say the fire has also been extremely difficult for their six children who were already adjusting to the challenges of the crisis such as remote learning. Melissa says she has another message for those customers who have supported them in their time of need: Now as they begin the process of rebuilding, the same community they stepped up to help is stepping up to return the favor. “She said hey I set up a gofundme for you, Please let me do this I need to do this for you guys,” Melissa said. last_img read more

Men’s water polo to honor seniors against UC Irvine

first_imgHomecoming spirit is in the air, but that isn’t going to stop the No. 4-ranked men’s water polo team from honoring their two seniors.  The team will honor Gerrit Hill and Mac Carden in a brief ceremony before the Trojans take on No. 7 UC Irvine on Sunday.Senior Day is always an emotional game, and this year is no different.  Though the team is not losing a large quantity of players, they will be losing players with significant NCAA championship experience.“One thing that is really special is that Mac decided to come back for his fifth year,” said redshirt senior Gerrit Hill. “He has a few rings under his belt, and I was lucky enough to be a part of the 2013 national championship team. So we’re both happy to be back for our fifth year and hopefully win another one.”This class was able to experience the back end of the Trojans championship dynasty that has led to winning six of the last seven national championships.“It’s an honor, I couldn’t ask for anything better,” said Hill of the special relationship he and Carden have developed as the lone seniors on the team.  “Mac is a really good friend, I am happy to have such a great friendship with him.”The Men of Troy won’t just be bidding their seniors adieu; they will also attempt to say goodbye to their two game losing streak.The Trojans will be coming home to Uytengsu following a stretch of three straight road games. Of these games, the Trojans will be coming off two consecutive losses to MPSF teams. Last weekend the Men of Troy lost a shootout to then No. 4 Cal 10-12, but the team is ready to bounce back.“The guys are super hyped for this Sunday. Everyone is coming back with a lot of fire,” Hill said.  “We’ve been training really hard this week. Jovan is on our case, and it’s just fueling our fire.”The Anteaters are 11-9 overall with a 1-5 MPSF record. They too are coming off of a losing stretch having lost to both UC Santa Barbara and Stanford last week.Before the team will get a crack at the Anteaters, the water polo team will celebrate their homecoming with a splash. The team will host their annual alumni game at Uytengsu Saturday afternoon at 3 p.m.According to Hill, what may seem to be a relaxing and fun game is actually quite the serious business affair. Nearly all of the alumni are returning with multiple NCAA championships and take great pleasure in the opportunity for one more shot at glory.“They’re coming back with multiple rings on their fingers, you know, trying to show off what they’ve got,” Hill said.The Trojans are ready to meet the challenge however, and will not let their former teammates pull of the upset.“We still take it as a regular game, you can’t take anything lightly, especially when we are going into a game Sunday,” Hill said. “It is a fun atmosphere playing with guys that you played with before, but we always go out in the water to win, everyone is competitive.”last_img read more
