Does your call center team show signs of being overwhelmed and burned-out from managing the stress of the pandemic while also working with the stress of high call-volume and high-emotion callers? This session will help you identify the signs and symptoms that indicate a team-based intervention could be undertaken to support your staff. You will learn about an innovative team check-in model that was successfully used for team support during the early phase of the COVID-19 pandemic by a 211 call center. This model was designed to support the well-being of telephone crisis workers, and promote workplace wellness, positive coping, and team support.

After attending this session, participants will be able to: 

  • Identify the emotional, behavioral, and psychological "signs and symptoms" that indicate a team-based support program may be helpful for your workers. 
  • Explain the components and functions of the 4-Question "Check-In Group" model and the model’s utility for team participants to process their negative emotions, anchor positive emotions, and encourage mindfulness with self-care and supportive team behavior.
  • Understand planning and implementation strategies to set-up a team-based program in collaboration with your community partners
