Earlier this month, the Flemish Employment and Training Agency (VDAB), published its yearly list of “bottleneck professions” (knelpuntberoepen). Bottleneck professions are a persistent problem for a wide range of occupations in Belgium and among this year’s Top 5, we found “Call Center Agent” in 4th position.

We are fully aware that over the last years it has become very difficult to find the right people in the customer service industry in Belgium, but in our experience that doesn’t apply if you are willing to look a bit further” states NewCo’s CEO, Marc Ternest.

From the offices in Casablanca, Barcelona and Valencia, NewCo provides contact center services for leading Belgian multinationals and SMEs for 10 years now. “During all those years we have been able to find without any problem, high educated, motivated and native Dutch and French speakers, who are providing an outstanding service for our clients and their customers” Marc Ternest continues.

The main bottleneck vacancies in Belgium will most probably not diminished, and surely we will find Call Centre agents in the top 10 again next year. But in the meanwhile NewCo Communications will continue to offer innovative and above all cost-efficient end-to-end solutions for it’s clients, with the help of it’s native employees, it’s Customer Ambassadors. They are the heart of the organisation and play a key role in delivering the excellent customer experience we are known for.
