A pandemic like the novel coronavirus can threaten any business’s stability.
While many businesses are on lockdown, even many of those exempted from the lockdown and those who have somehow managed to stay open are finding it difficult to get their footing. According to a recent Wall Street Journal article, businesses across the world, including those in the USA are scrambling for workers to help attend to and filter out customer calls during this pandemic.
Customers are now facing long hours of wait times either listening to less helpful prerecorded messages or recordings relaying messages of unavailable help. Some companies have gone far as restricting customer service to online channels only while some have struck this out completely.
Chaos and More Chaos
Amidst the chaos, we’ve also heard of customer support companies cramming thousands of workers into workspaces where they can barely maintain 2ft of distance from the next person. That doesn’t make any sense considering the fact that we are where we are due to our laxity with social distancing and the other measures that could have helped us nipped the pandemic in the bud earlier on.
Businesses, as well as customer support agencies, need better strategies to adapt to these changing times. We’re only hoping that cases like the one above do not contribute more to the chaos we have found ourselves in. Come to think of it, one person infected with coronavirus in a hall packed with over a thousand customer service workers will mean even more chaos.
