On April 19, 2018, AnswerOn held our webinar “Overcoming Call Center Obstacles” which featured our special guests Dave Gregory, CEO of Conatus3, and Joe Cox, Workforce Management Consultant and former Vice President of Workforce Management at Alorica. Both speakers spoke to issues that are still relevant two years later.
The TV crime show genre is very popular. Fighting agent attrition with AnswerOn is a lot more like your favorite “whodunit” than you’d expect it to be.
One of the most common reasons agents quit their call center job is scheduling problems. Call centers have become so efficient and hands off by implementing automated scheduling and PTO request systems that they’ve lost the human touch which makes agents feel valued and appreciated.
