The Judging Process
HOW ARE THE AWARDS JUDGED?
The Awards are judged in two phases. Phase one judging is based 100% on the written entry submitted and results in a shortlist of finalists.
For Phase 2 these finalists will be invited to attend a 30-minute judging session on either the 4th, 5th or 6th September. There will be a panel of three Call and Contact Centre professionals that have met the criteria for selection and are fully briefed, together with one mediator. Each judge will score the indvidual or team individually.
The finalists for Contact Centre of the Year will be judged on site at your Centre on either the 10th, 11th or 12th September. This visit will be 1 hour to include your presentation, the judges questions, and a tour of the site. Each judge will score the centre independently.
The winners will be announced at the Awards Dinner. The judges may also award highly commended certificates to individuals and centres whom they felt deserve special recognition but who may not necessarily have achieved the best mark overall.
