Agile contact centre platform ensures success of the Thales UK HR shared services initiative

Much more responsive HR in so many ways.

Life could have been a bit rosier for Kathryn Rogers, a lead administrator in the Thales UK HR office. Calls from the company’s 6,500 staff seeking expert assistance arrived pretty much at random. No-one knew how many came in, how long they lasted, or who got landed with more than their fair share.

The new Thales HR shared services centre was introduced so people like Kathryn could offer a more fulfilling customer experience. Now her workload’s far better managed. She can pay closer attention not only to callers’ needs but also to the myriad of other tasks demanded of her.

Kathryn’s much happier in her job, she and her colleagues are more productive, and the HR organisation’s more responsive to its internal audience. And BT Cloud Contact, which makes those things possible, gets the thumbs-up all round.

Since we got the new system I’m no longer a slave to the telephone. The effect’s really noticeable at one-to-ones with my boss. I’m getting due recognition for what I do because it’s suddenly become measurable and manageable.”
- Kathryn Rogers, Lead HR Administrator, Thales UK
