Data Protection Statement on Recorded Calls
Shane Academy Privacy Notice Call Recording
Shane Academy may record some telephone calls.
This includes incoming and outgoing telephone calls that are handled by Shane Academy and associated companies except those on mobile phones conducted direct on the handset.
Why are calls recorded?
It has become common practice to record calls due to the growth of business conducted by telephone.
Recording customer conversations allows organisations to assess customer satisfaction, train and develop staff, review call quality, and have access to a verbal record of what is said in the event of a subsequent complaint. It also hopefully means employees feel more protected knowing that any threatening behaviour can be evidenced and acted upon where necessary.
How will call recordings be used?
Quality monitoring – Written records only provide partial information. A call recording provides a more rounded view and allows us to better understand customer experience and assess the processes applied. This can help us identify any improvement areas.
Training and Development
Listening to a sample number of calls, allows managers to identify training needs. Sample scenarios are based on the recordings but any transcripts are anonymised.
Gaining a better understanding of our customers – Many calls are verbally resolved without the need to complete any records. Listening to sample calls will help us better understand our customer needs and gain a more informed view of organisations we signpost to.
Complaints and disputes
Some calls are verbally resolved. Where information is entered onto an electronic system this becomes the established record. In the event of a complaint or dispute, a call recording (if available), may provide additional information to help us investigate any allegations.
Employee safety and wellbeing
A recording may become a vital piece of evidence in the event of any threats being made to the organisation or an individual.
