Coverage

Every language, every need – covered by SYKESHome for Europe!

Without the physical constraints of a building, SYKESHome delivers every customer service need

Being unrestricted by a physical location has many benefits when supporting your customers. Whatever talent acquisition or real estate restrictions your local or European customer service operations currently have, work-at-home agents will overcome these.

SYKESHome for Europe currently operates in five European countries, covers 10 languages and employs over 600 home-based customer service agents. This is, however, just the start of our coverage and will grow quickly as work-at-home is adopted by brands to meet the needs of their business and their customers.

Since home-based teams are not defined or restricted in the way a building or country boundaries might be for delivering pan-European customer support, coverage continues to grow to meet the needs of our clients and their customers, serving seasonal, out-of-hours, or special talent needs. Since home-based teams are not defined or restricted in the way a building or country boundaries might be for delivering pan-European customer support, coverage continues to grow to meet the needs of our clients and their customers, serving seasonal, out-of-hours, or special talent needs. Part-time and split-shift working suits employees well and are key contributors to achieving operational agility.

  • Targets special interest groups, for affinity programmes and local knowledge needs
  • Brings into the workforce groups excluded by disability or location
  • Recruits people with specific experience or qualifications

We’re happy to answer any questions you may have – please get in touch.
