Call Center Behaviors: Trending Behaviour.

1. The Slouching Employee

While waiting for the calls (agents), most employee simply slouch even without dakine backpack, Or even when a quality analyst listens to a call, he slouches as a form of relaxation. This has been trending in call centers whenever agents have their free time so this is quite easy to do.

2. Ergonomics Fanatics
Call centers are known to provide their employees good working chairs to promote ergonomics. An ideal chair has a comfortable armrest and adjustable height. It should also have proper bak support. The ergonomics is really being studied by call center employees. Those fans of ergonomic simply copies the behavior in sitting in terms of what is most advisable.

3. The Noise club
During the avail time or times when calls are not in high volumes, the agents start to prattle and create noise all over the place. This behavior is not new among the call center. And in one way or another, you will be tempted to throw in your noisy feedbacks too.

So these behaviors when traced are probably observed IN call center employees.

Eraserheads “The Final Set” Concert!

Pinoy Banda has posted the update for the awaited part 2 of the Eraserhead’s One night reunion concert. You can read all about it in there

So what’s the update about? It’s the location of the Eraserheads “THe Final Set” concert.. this is the part 2 of the One Night Only Reunion Concert..

SM Mall of Asia concert grounds to host Eraserheads concert on March 7

Tentatively titled The Final Set, the concert will once again feature Ely Buendia, Marcus Adoro, Buddy Zabala, and Raimund Marasigan on one stage.

The band’s first reunion concert last August 30, 2008 at the Bonifacio Global City open field in Taguig ended abruptly after 15 songs when lead singer Buendia suffered chest pains and had to be rushed to the hospital. The legendary quartet was supposed to perform 30 of their original songs, which comprise the bulk of their entire catalog.

TOTALLY DIFFERENT. All four members graced the press conference and though the band retained that trademark nonchalance in answering questions, they collectively expressed excitement about playing together anew as one unit in front of a large audience.

“Playing with these guys is just like riding a bike,” enthused Buddy. “You come on stage, remember all the old songs. It’s pretty normal. But it became more exciting, a lot more exciting, when people started counting down and people started singing.”

A in the first installment, the one-night affair will feature only the Eraserheads with Jazz Nicholas of the Itchyworms serving as auxiliary musician to complement the arrangement of some of the songs. When they were still active as a group, the Eraserheads used to enlist the services of multi-instrumentalist Noel Garcia to tighten their live set. Unfortunately, Noel passed away a few years ago after a heart attack.

Raimund dismissed the impression that the upcoming event will only serve as a continuation of the first reunion. He argued that the band and the production team prepared something new and different from last year’s concert.

The fact that preparations are being laid out this early also means that the concert is more organized. MTV announced that further details will be made public in the coming weeks.

As for Ely’s health, the enigmatic singer-songwriter assured the press that he’s doing fine.

“I’m just doing all that I can to prepare myself physically, at least,” said Ely, who just like his former comrades came to the presscon sporting a pair of dark shades. He confidently added, “So far, yeah, I’m in good condition to play.”
