Engaged, well-trained employees mean better customer experiences
If your business is like many others in today’s dynamic, fast-paced world, you face the dual challenges of keeping your employees engaged and your customers happy. Your employees are expected to manage a growing array of communication channels, each of which require different skill sets, while also staying up-to-date on current offers, product features and services. They are tasked with supporting your customers, who are increasingly well-informed and pressed for time. In addition, many simple transactions are now resolved via self-service, leaving your team to handle the more complex and challenging issues. However, providing your workforce with the consistent, timely training they need is often a difficult task.
Ensuring your team’s abilities are evaluated properly and are continually optimized to meet customer needs can be a constant and perplexing challenge. Performance assessments can be subjective and less than reliable. In addition, coordinating the scheduling of training activities is a tricky balancing act. It is a hit-or-miss manual process that often compromises business operations due to poor timing. What’s even worse–ever changing volumes and workforce coverage requirements often mean you must cancel and reschedule sessions or leave them half-empty. Further complicating matters is the high turnover rate that afflicts many businesses. This presents a double-edged sword in that the constant churn makes it difficult to keep up-to-date on employee skills; when your your staff lacks the skills and knowledge to properly handle customer requests, it quickly causes dissatisfaction and reduces morale.
