Attrition Woes

Attrition rates in the call center industry have increased phenomenally in the last one-year. The current agent level rate stands at an all time high of 45-50% for voice- based processes up from 35% last year. For more specialized non-voice based processes, the figure is still high 15-20%, according to Nasscom.

In the call center industry, people leaving the job in the first 30-45 days are as high as 10-15%. These youngsters are straight out of college with little idea of what is expected from them or what they are to expect from their job. Apart from all other reasons, one of the major reasons contributing towards the high attrition rates is stress.

Among all job stress statistics though, the one that has received maximum attention over the last few years is call center stress. More than any other, a call center roots people to a ‘chair nine hours’ a day, reading pre-scripted conversations on the phone endlessly-often to irate customers across the globe. Where every single second of an employee’s time is recorded, measured and automatically logged onto a computer for praise or censure on a weekly basis. Where walking down to the water cooler for a drink and a chat with a friend messes up performance metrics, salaries and hikes. Where the three acts of listening, watching and talking—all at the same time—never get a break.

Some call center and BPO companies in the country have got together under the aegis of Nasscom to address common areas of concern—but so far these have largely centered on deciding how not to poach on each other’s employees and what to do with the Shops and Establishments Act. Employee stress—and its impact on the bottom line through high attrition rates—is not even on the horizon of concerns!

Rhodiola Rosea is the latest natural remedy to join the arsenal of natural anxiety and stress (stress reliever) reducers.

Rhodiola Rosea, also known as Golden Root, is a native plant of arctic Siberia. For centuries it has been used by eastern European and Asian cultures for physical endurance, work productivity, longevity, resistance to high altitude sickness, and to treat fatigue, depression, anemia, impotence, gastrointestinal ailments, infections, and nervous system disorders.

The first recorded medicinal applications of rodia riza (renamed Rhodiola Rosea) was made by the Greek physician, Dioscorides, in 77 C.E. in 'De Materia Medica'. Rhodiola Rosea has been included in official Russian medicine since 1969.

Despite its long history, the Western world has only recently become aware of the health benefits of Rhodiola Rosea. It has come to the attention of many natural health practitioners because of studies which tested its affects on combating anxiety and stress.

Rhodiola Rosea is considered an adaptogen. This means it has an overall stabilizing effect on the body without disrupting other functions. Its ability to normalize hormones may be effective for treating depression and anxiety.

Studies of Rhodiola Rosea show that it stimulates neurotransmitters and enhances their effects on the brain. This includes the ability for the brain to process serotonin which helps the body to adapt to stress.

Since adaptogens improve the body's overall ability to handle stress, it has been studied to identify it's effects on biological, chemical and physical stress.

A study was performed to test the effects of Rhodiola Rosea when stress or stress reliever is caused by intense mental work (such as final exams). Such tests concluded that using Rhodiola Rosea improved the amount and quality of work, increasing mental clarity and reducing the effects of fatigue.

The effects of Rhodiola Rosea have also been tested on stress and anxiety from both physical and emotional sources. A report by the American Botanical Council states that "Most users find that it improves their mood, energy level, and mental clarity." They also report on a study that indicated Rhodiola Rosea could increase stress tolerance while at the same time protecting the brain and heart from the physical affects of stress.

This report included details of studies which highlight the overall health benefits of Rhodiola Rosea.

The generally recommended dose is 200-600mg/day. The active properties should be a minimum 0.8 percent salidroside and 3 percent rosavin.

It is important for consumers to know that Rhodiola may be sold using other species that do not share the properties of Rhodiola Rosea, stress reliever, or at ineffective strengths for treatment. Anyone with depression or anxiety should also check with a health professional when treating these symptoms.
