Contact Centre Agents Almost Half Feel Undervalued – New survey identifies key reasons for problems in UK contact centres
- 4 out of 5 Team Leaders do not feel that agents are resolving customer queries consistently
- Nearly 40% of agents do not feel empowered to deal with customer queries
- Less than a third of Team Leaders feel able to provide sufficient coaching for their agents
EvaluAgent has now produced ‘The Essential Team Leader Playbook‘ to address the problems faced between Team Leaders and their agents. It aims to provide Team Leaders with the skills and the knowledge they need to resolve the most common problems in contact centres.
Jaime Scott, the Managing Director at EvaluAgent, said: “It’s never easy for Team Leaders, but they have the opportunity to improve their skills if they use the right tools. Team Leaders can consistently improve through communicating with their teams, learning how to empower their agents, and through regular coaching. This way, they can make sure they are doing everything possible to meet the different needs of the business, their agents and the customer.”
EvaluAgent is workforce optimisation and people management software designed for call centres and back-office operations.
