7 top tips on how to combine technology and people to improve contact centre performance.
Every contact centre’s goal is to build customer relationships and improve the corporate image. However, this is difficult to achieve if the operation is full of unmotivated and dissatisfied people.
According to statistics, Britain might well lead the field when it comes to contact centres with over 50% of European call centres, but staff turnover is a major issue, costing approximately £2,244 for every person employed in the industry. This represents a billion pounds worth of brand equity lost each year in the battle to win the hearts and minds of customers.
On the other hand, engaged and satisfied employees are four times more likely to stay than their unhappy colleagues and are 3.3 times more likely to feel empowered to resolve customer issues. It’s clear that there is a strong link between good agent morale, cost efficiency and productivity, but how do you achieve the right balance?
The aim is to create a great place to work with robust technology, motivated staff and to watch performance grow.
