The study adopted a descriptive research design. The population for the study consisted of 200 employees who work in the morning shift in the customer care department of three telecommunication companies in Kenya namely Safaricom, Airtel and Telkom.

The sample size of 30% was used as the sample population. Hence, the number of respondents presented with the questionnaire was 60. The study used primary data collected using a questionnaire since it had the ability to reach a wider number of respondents in less time.
