  • Call Center Attrition: It Doesn’t Have to Be a Revolving Door of Agents

    Let’s face it. Attrition is a big issue for call centers – and perhaps even more so for outsourced call center providers.

Creating a people-focused corporate culture has helped us achieve an attrition rate nearly 50% lower than our competition.
