National Telephonists’ Day is a wonderful opportunity to recognize the work done by professional telephonists and show our appreciation for them and what they do for our organisations. Now in it’s 6th year, National Telephonists’ Day is a truly national day of celebration and and there are loads of ways organisations can take part in the celebrations on March 8th/9th!
Have a look at the photos from the last few years where businesses up and down the country have really taken this initiative to heart!
The purpose of National Telephonists’ Day is to:
– Recognise the importance of telephonists. They are often the first person clients talk to when they make contact with organisations. This huge responsibility to make the right first impression is down to the impression that telephonists make.
– Promote pride and professionalism amongst telephonists for the important role they play within an organisation.
The day has been created and sponsored by Rapport and ComXo, two of the UK’s leading providers of executive in-house and out-of-house telephony services. Jointly they employ and support over 100 telephonists across the UK. The aim is for the day to be celebrated on March 10th each year across all businesses that employ dedicated telephonists.
The date of 10th of March is significant as it is the anniversary of the very first telephone call made by Alexander Graham Bell in 1876.
“It is good to know that this initiative will help reflect all that we do as a team, primarily trying to deliver a first class service. I am proud to be a part of the National Telephonists’ Day in March.”
