This code shall apply to all instances where The Calls Warehouse is involved in the sale or marketing of their Fixed Line Telecommunication Services to business customers. Regardless of the way in which our sales and marketing activities are conducted we will act responsibly and compliantly. It is acknowledged that some customers may not wish to be approached in some instances. The Calls Warehouse undertakes to respect the wishes of its customers and not to approach potential customers that have registered with any Preference Services. In addition, although The Calls Warehouse rarely engages in direct advertising, any promotional literature, including our website, will at all times use clear and unambiguous language. Furthermore The Calls Warehouse are committed to ensuring that any such material will be fair and will contain no misleading or false information. It will contain accurate information relating to price, value and service, and will not denigrate other providers.
In recruiting sales staff The Calls Warehouse recruits all its staff on the basis that the employees are representatives of the company and the initial contact that its customers will receive. The Calls Warehouse will not tolerate any behaviour from any of our employees which brings the good name of The Calls Warehouse into disrepute. Should any criminal convictions be
highlighted during the employees selection process, the nature of these will be taken into account when deciding whether or not to offer employment.
All successful applicants complete training courses to ensure:
< >A complete and accurate understanding of The Calls Warehouse Fixed Line Telecommunication package.Awareness of the courteous behaviour and integrity expected of them at all times.Awareness of the code of practice and its contents, and their responsibility to comply with the code at all times.Awareness of GC24 and other relevant regulations.The complete awareness that mis-selling, misrepresentations, and disrespectful behaviour will not be tolerated andThat any allegations made will be fully investigated in line with the company’s code of conduct and its internal disciplinary procedures.

Before offering employment all our employees are fully checked; proof of identity, e.g. drivers licence, passport and if appropriate visa status. Each applicant must also provide proof of National Insurance Number.
The Calls Warehouse conducts regular audits/assessments of all employees and continuously monitors their performance.
Each sales representative is trained to an exceptionally high standard and before they are allowed to engage with customers they attend an intensive training course, at the end of which their knowledge will be examined. Any person who falls below the high standard demanded by us is not allowed access to customers. Furthermore, our sales staff are provided with a sufficient understanding of our business to be able to properly inform the customer of the services offered and prevent them misleading customers in any way. Using role-play scenarios, we positively discourage misleading selling. Whilst part of the remuneration of our sales staff is generated on a ‘payment by results’ basis, the construction of the pay plan is such that they would not be paid for contracts that are subsequently found to have been achieved using exploitative or misleading sales practices.
