Key insights from knowledge leaders
Peter Ryan is quoted as saying: “As long as Biden and his team can provide a commercial direction in terms of where they want to take the US, businesses can more easily strategize their CX initiatives.”
His words were echoed by Stuart Discount who stated: “Any new leadership will be entirely different. With the Democrats now also controlling the Senate, we’re going to see major impacts on future regulation for the CX industry”.
Commenting on minimum wage adjustments, Bill Pieper noted that the adjustments boded well for the industry. “I think that post-COVID there will be an increased need for outsourcing outside the US, mainly because the higher minimum wage means they won’t have a cost-effective workforce to lean on at home.”
The report wraps up in a positive note with Simon Danczuk stating: “There’s no doubt that political change can cause worry and stress, but it’s also an exciting time. People should look at this new government as an opportunity to adapt and remain fresh in a new business climate.”
