Transform Your Call Center Culture Through Remote Employee Engagement

As companies embrace hybrid and remote work environments, they face a new challenge: keeping remote employees engaged and happy. We examined benchmark data and found consistent factors affecting remote team member happiness, engagement, and performance.

Root Issues Behind the Decrease in Remote Employee Engagement:

  • Supervisor training skills often don’t translate from an in-person setting to video conferencing or other remote environments
  • Agents no longer receive the quality call center training they once enjoyed
  • Management’s difficulty communicating and implementing clear-cut growth paths
  • Feelings of isolation set in as person-to-person connections drop off
  • No “water cooler” chats = less camaraderie
  • Salespeople lose that in-person, sales floor buzz

Increase Measures of Success by Implementing a Well-Thought-Out Action Plan

As you can see, the decrease in virtual employee engagement stems from several root causes. A well-thought-out action plan that works on different fronts simultaneously is needed to create the level of success call centers are striving for. Heightened success across your contact center will elevate happiness and morale, improving call center agent performance. This leads to not only an increase in retention but also overall measures of success:

  • Higher first call resolutions

  • Faster speed to competency

  • Increased Net Promoter Score (NPS)

  • Reduced call center attrition

  • Increased overall success for your call center
