2 BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES Members of SE Wales Call Centre Forum are keen to establish mechanism for obtaining aggregate information relating to regional call centre sector Aims are: –To monitor trends over time –To allow individual companies to benchmark performance against sector as whole Data is available at UK level from annual Merchants International survey, but this does not provide detailed feedback required on SE Wales

5 MAXIMISING CO-OPERATION Individual company data will be completely confidential – only aggregate results will be published Before recruitment of Panel, introductory letter explaining aims & importance of study and stressing confidentiality will be sent by MRW to all members of Initiative Programme of reminders will be set up, so that all non- respondents receive 2 reminders to complete & return their questionnaire Questionnaire will be kept as succinct as possible, with mostly pre-coded responses, to speed up its completion

6 TIMINGS & REPORTING Results for each wave will be available within 4 weeks of fieldwork starting,eg if Wave 1 starts 1 st week January, then results published in early Feb At end of each wave, MRW will prepare summary report (bullet-points with charts illustrating trends over time) Report will be ed to all participants/members of Initiative Presentations could also be provided, if desired
