“We wanted to give opportunity to local Emiratis and in doing so, not only offer rewarding jobs and career opportunities, but also to support the local community and its economy.
“And as our business grows in the Northern Emirates, there will be further opportunities for career progression,” commented Markus Oberlin, CEO, Farnek.
Farnek has been applauded by the ministry for its positive strategy towards Emiratisation and was awarded with Platinum membership of the national employment - Tawteen Programme. The initiative was launched in December 2016 by the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MOHRE), to encourage the employment of UAE nationals within specified occupations across the private sector.
“It can be difficult to find employment when living in relatively isolated areas on the UAE’s east coast. It is changing especially with the hospitality sector opening up, but for some the only viable alternative is commuting to Ras Al Khaimah, Sharjah, or even Dubai, something that their families naturally want to avoid,” added Oberlin.
The contact centre is expected to manage over 200,000 inbound and outbound calls, in its first year alone. Farnek’s contact centre executives will attend to their customer's needs by providing professional, helpful, high quality technical and general assistance before, during and after service delivery, on behalf of both Farnek and its home and property maintenance division, Hitches and Glitches.
The new centre in Fujairah was set up to support Farnek’s central contact centre in Dubai, which was successfully certified last year, after complying with International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) 18295.
The certification specifies minimum service requirements for customer contact centres and provides a framework for efficiency of service and provisions and management for consistent customer service. These include communication with customers, complaint handling and employee engagement, while also providing guidance on the type of information Farnek needs to provide to achieve high levels of customer engagement and to ensure customer expectations are being met.
