Work-at-home is no longer a nice to have!
No longer is work at home something that we may require or allow - we've seen recently how essential it has become from a business continuity perspective. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen a shift from the traditional way of working, from bricks and mortar to a work-at-home (WaH) model in South Africa and around the world.
Some organisations have done this more easily than others –they tend to be organisations that already had a WaH model in place and could roll this out to the broader workforce, although even then not without its challenges.
Many contact centers that were 100% bricks and mortar have had to put emergency business continuity plans in place by migrating quickly to home-working. In many cases, security and compliance have been sacrificed in exchange for agility.
Who's doing it well, how are they doing this and what are the challenges?
The U.S. market appears to be leading the way in terms of WaH adoption with 88% of leading global BPOs running WaH programmes for the past decade, using it as a way to achieve differentiation and competitive advantage.
In this webinar, we bring together a panel of South African and International BPO experts who will share their insights into the shift to a WaH model, the impact on South Africa’s BPO industry and how the most innovative international BPOs world are rolling out WaH both quickly and securely.
