The new operating model replaced the 4,800 part-time Agents with 3,000 mainly full time Customer Engagement Managers. It was envisaged that c.2,000 Agents would be successful in securing one of the new roles, but that was purely an estimate and would leave an additional 1,000 positions to be filled.
In addition, the restructure involved every level within the business, thus Area Managers and Regional Managers were also displaced and had to apply for new roles in the structure. The new operating model relied on the roll-out of new technology to provide routing and scheduling to front line employees, as well as a new customer platform – this all required training in, ranging from 3 days to train a Regional Director to 2 weeks to train a brand-new Customer Engagement Manager, totaling 17,000 training delivery days across all roles in the UK. Finally, we had just 7 months to complete the project!
