Based on her PhD, which focused on the relationship between sensory profiles, performance, absenteeism and attrition in South African contact centres, Dr Annemarie Lombard and her team fully understand the importance of our sensory systems on how we work – especially in contact centres. The following obstacles may seem impossible to overcome, but the solution is much simpler than anticipated and lies in one of the most basic processes in the brain, namely sensory processing.

  • Lack of energy and focus leading to people not applying themselves
  • Poor performance and targets not being met
  • High stress levels and health related issues
  • High absenteeism
  • Poor customer service and satisfaction
  • Team leaders not equipped to deal with operational as well as people demands
  • Generational differences and conflict
  • High training and induction costs
  • High attrition
  • 60-70% of overall costs are staff related expenses
