Created model to predict leaving risk

A new approach was required to address a growing, industry wide problem of colleague attrition.

Top 3 global business process outsourcer. We worked with the UK team and a Strategic Client. We combined our practitioner understanding of the factors affecting colleague attrition, with a machine learning to give a leaving prediction dashboard, presented in an enhanced MI dashboard that significantly reduced team leader effort to implement ‘interventions’.


  • Attrition was the most significant business cost affecting margin.
  • Clients were beginning to take notice and enforce penalties.
  • All historical efforts had failed to curtail leavers, which is a common problem in busy contact centres.


  • We ran a dual approach of colleague journey & solution design that addressed root causes of attrition & activity to mitigate it.
  • Data Science modelling ran in tandem using over 220 data points across people, process & performance used to build the model.
  • An iterative Minimum Viable Product approach was used to drive pace and business engagement in co-creating the solution.


  • A minimum viable product that predicted the likelihood of leaving within 6 weeks, that had up to an 85% confidence level.
  • The creation of the MI dashboard effectively reduced team leader one to one preparation time from 45 to 5 minutes.
  • Out colleague entered approach combining our direct experience and best of iterative Data Science - all pushed into a reworked MI dashboard created a real world AI win.
