Humanise the workplace series - Part 3
Agents will always be the most vital resource for your contact centre. As a contact centre manager it’s your job to boost employee satisfaction and retention, lower sickness and absenteeism rates and enhance customer service. The end result being improved profitability, a happier workforce and happier customers.
Finding the right Workforce Management solution can help you achieve these goals.
Boosting employee satisfaction can be done in a number of different ways. In order to recruit and retain the best, contact centre managers need to provide options and flexibility for employees to feel wanted and effectively manage their work-life balance.
The contact centre mantra is simple – a happy and appreciated employee = enhanced customer service and profitability.
One of the ways to boost employee engagement and satisfaction is with Teleopti’s shift trader module.
In a nutshell, Shift Trader (part of the lifestyle module designed to boost employee’s work-life balance) is a fully automated module, allowing agents to view their colleagues’ schedules to trade shifts for one or more days.
How exactly does Shift Trader work?
The request is sent to the agent’s colleague for approval or denial with subsequent, instant notification and schedule updates. Business rules set up previously by the planning team ensure agents can swap as few or as many shifts as they please - without affecting service levels!
With the shift trade board, agents can post their shifts available for trade andset the criteria for what they want in return e.g. time range. An agent who meets this criteria will see this available shift and can complete the trade by selecting it from the shift trade board.
With all shift trades, whether agent to agent or via the shift trade board, the schedules are updated in real time in the agent portal, team leader portal and planning team view. Agents are also able to see the history of their requested shift swaps.
N.B Don’t forget – shift trader can also work on a semi-automated process, whereby the trades agreed which do not break business rules and are accepted by the system or shift trading can still be sent to team leaders/planners for their final approval if this is your preference.
