Call Center - Customer Service Awards Program

Since 1998, Our Call Center Customer Service Industry Awards Have Recognized Top-Performing Call Centers and Employees for First Call Resolution, Customer Satisfaction, Employee Satisfaction and Best Practices. 

FCR/CX Awards Overview

SQM's First Call Resolution Customer Experience (CX) Awards are the original, biggest, and most prestigious North American Call Center Industry CX Awards. Since 1998, SQM has been awarding call centers for their First Call Resolution (FCR), CX, and Employee Experience results, as well as FCR Best Practice performance.

North American Call Center CX Awards Badge

SQM's awards are unique because they are based on customers who have used a call center and or employees who work in a call center. For a call center to be eligible for FCR Awards, they must participate in an SQM FCR benchmarking or tracking research study. First Call Resolution Awards are given out annually at an SQM Awards Gala event.

Unique Call Center Awards Badge

SQM benchmarks over 500 leading North American call centers annually and has been conducting FCR, customer satisfaction (Csat), employee satisfaction (Esat), call center benchmarking, and tracking studies since 1996. Organizations that have participated in an SQM benchmarking or tracking study during the awards year, January 1 - December 31, qualify for SQM's call center FCR/CX awards program.
