The CCMA UK (Call Centre Management Association) announces that nominations for the 23rd UK National Contact Centre Awards close in 10 days.
• Nominate individuals and teams for free on the UK National Contact Centre Awards 2018 website
• Simplified entry process means it only takes around 15 minutes to enter
• Downloadable Toolkit walks you through the entire process
UK-based contact centres can enter for free by registering on the Awards website up until midnight on 23rd February 2018.
Ann-Marie Stagg, CEO of the CCMA, said,
“While it only takes about 15 minutes to write a nomination this year with our simple entry process, we do suggest not leaving it until the very last minute. It’s always good to get input from the person or team being nominated, including their line manager and other colleagues.”
In response to industry suggestions several new categories have been added for 2018 to recognise the invaluable contribution of HR and recruitment programmes, among others, to contact centre success.
– Most Effective Contact Centre Recruitment Programme
– Best Employee Recognition Programme
– Best Apprenticeship Programme
– Contact Centre Support Team of the Year
To help companies through the entry process, and tell them what to expect from the face-to-face judging round and the Gala Dinner, the CCMA has put together a downloadable Toolkit.
“To make it to the shortlist it’s important to show the judges evidence of consistent delivery against key objectives including efficiency, effectiveness, customer and colleague engagement. Then it’s the face-to-face judging process during March and April which determines the winners.
Above all the judges look for individuals and teams that demonstrate role model behaviours and practices that others in the industry aspire to and can learn from.”
The Gala Dinner on 15th May at The Brewery in London will bring together several hundred leading contact centre and customer service professionals from across the UK. For shortlisted entrants it presents a not-to-be-missed opportunity to meet, greet and network with people from other successful businesses.
The longest established awards for the UK contact centre industry are now in their 23rd year and recognise those individuals and teams in the industry who are working to make their contact centres professional and industry leading. The awards have an excellent reputation across the industry for being of a very high standard. All of the shortlisted nominees go through a comprehensive judging process, including face to face interviews.
