Since it’s been established that being clever is no longer enough, Emotional Intelligence has become the measurement used by 56% of major companies in the United States.
Global organisations have increased sales by 13% in ten months, have improved customer service, and influenced the performance and behaviour of employees.

This has significant implications for the recruitment selection and training of call centre agents.Back to Blog
