Background noise is a pervasive issue in contact centres, leading to longer calls, lower customer satisfaction, and reduced productivity. This article explores the true cost of background noise and uncovers how Jabra Engage headsets offer a proactive solution to mitigate its detrimental effects.
Contact centres play a crucial role in customer satisfaction and business success. However, background noise poses a significant threat to their overall efficiency and effectiveness. Jabra has conducted extensive research, analysing over 10,000 calls, to quantify the impact of background noise on key performance indicators (KPIs) and reveal its financial implications.

Our research findings highlight the startling consequences of background noise in contact centres:
- Increased Call Interruptions: Background noise triggers 50% more call interruptions and doubles the frequency of interruptions within calls.
- Prolonged Call Length: Noise contributes to a 10% increase in average call handling time.
- Diminished Customer Satisfaction: It causes a 10% decline in customer satisfaction scores, directly impacting customer experience and retention.

Jabra Engage headsets offer a compelling solution to combat background noise and rescue contact centre performance:
