Call Center Management

Precision Research prides itself on having a group of dedicated employees – many of whom have been with the company for 10 years or more -- who ensure that all of the call center operations are operating efficiently. This group of dedicated professionals take pride in their work, and maintain an upbeat and positive working environment which in turn will ensure that the calls being made on our clients’ behalf are made by interviewers who will approach each task in a competent and professional manner.

Interviewing Staff

We strive to recruit and train only the most appropriate individuals for our interviewing staff by utilizing demanding pre-employment screening criteria and focusing on hiring individuals who demonstrate genuine potential to become successful interviewers.

Interviewer Training

All interviewers must complete an ongoing comprehensive training program. Our two day training sessions cover the requirements and skills necessary for professional data collection. The session includes extensive practice calling and individual coaching. Interviewers also receive daily pre-calling briefings to address issues specific to current projects. Our interviewers understand that telephone research is a valid scientific activity. They are trained and prepared to collect reliable, accurate data.

Monitoring

We monitor every interviewer several times during each shift. We provide our interviewers with immediate feedback concerning their interviewing techniques. Our interviewers recognize that any falsification of data is grounds for immediate dismissal.

Validation

Exceeding industry standards, Precision Research monitors 15% of all interviews (5% above the industry standard) and validates 10% of all interviews (again, this is 5% above industry standards).
