As a business, it is essential to have an excellent communication with clients. This communication is the backbone for creating loyalty for your products and services.
Building a successful call center team, through hiring, training and retaining agents, is crucial to achieving the desired performance. However, call center agents often have many options related to their skills, knowledge, and experience, resulting in higher attrition rates.
The continuous training program may decrease the customer experience, and the need for the agents to start a new learning curve. Managers usually don’t think about these aspects unless they work in the HR department.
In the call center industry, to prepare a fully trained agent usually takes up to 2 to 4 months. Keep in mind that you require both agents and supervisors to help your organization control its KPIs (Key Performance Indicators).
During the learning curve, clients usually suffer because unskilled agents may take longer to solve their problems; this leads to longer waiting times, more time spent on the phone, or even wasting an entire afternoon trying to fix a simple problem that an instructed agent could quickly solve.
It depends on the Call Center, its core values, its selection during the hiring process, and the training and retention plans that will ensure keeping loyal and proficient agents in each campaign.
In conclusion, managing a Call Center is a challenge, both for the service provider and the client. Communication is key to keeping the operations running smoothly and creating the desired results with the end client. It is all about Customer Experience, Customer Satisfaction, and above all, generating the desired profits.
