Contact centre agents play a critical role in providing excellent customer service, and their productivity levels can have a significant impact on a company's bottom line. Research has shown that contact centre agents are more productive when they are happy agents and engaged in their work.
There are several reasons why happy agents are more productive.
First, happy agents are more likely to provide high-quality customer service. They are more engaged in their interactions with customers, take the time to listen to their needs, and are more likely to go above and beyond to solve their problems.
Second, happy agents are more likely to stay with a company for the long term. High turnover rates in contact centres can be costly and disruptive, as it takes time and resources to train new agents. By investing in the employee experience and creating a positive work environment, companies can retain their top talent and build a more experienced, knowledgeable team.
Third, happy agents are more likely to be proactive in identifying and solving problems. They are more likely to collaborate with their colleagues, share knowledge and best practices, and provide feedback to help improve the overall customer experience.
To create a positive work environment and promote agent happiness, companies can take several steps. These include offering competitive pay and benefits, providing ongoing training and development opportunities, recognising, and rewarding good performance, and giving agents the tools and technology like KnowledgeIQ, they need to do their jobs effectively.
