Doing the same mundane tasks daily can get tedious, causing employee productivity to come to a standstill and hindering staff motivation.
At a call centre, things aren’t much different. From providing exceptional customer experience to analysing customer calls and coming up with on-the-go solutions, the staff have a lot on their plates. Maintaining the same enthusiasm for every call can be challenging.
Call centre managers often find it challenging to ensure that employees are motivated and ready to take on their workload – so much so, that it often falls to the wayside or simple band-aid fixes are implemented. It is becoming an increasing trend to prioritise the happiness of the organisations customer facing frontline – after all, they’re the company’s backbone interacting with customers, so their satisfaction should be of priority.
If you are looking for ways to create a charged-up positive work environment, here are a few ways to empower your employees along with using contact centre software like CX designed knowledge management solutions, so they feel ready to take on the day:
Encourage and Support
Content employees make a happy workplace. And the best way to ensure that your employees are happy is to encourage them, support them and instill confidence in them. Analyzing customer calls all day isn’t an easy task, especially when they have to read lengthy documents to answer a question accurately.
This is where implementing the right contact centre software helps. Empowering your agents with knowledge management solution tools like livepro can take agents through dynamic customer journeys in an easy-to-use format that has been designed specifically for the contact centre. One such feature in livepro that makes for easy work is the Rocket – a dynamic decision making tool. The agent asks the customer a simple question, the customer replies, after which the agent asks another automated question until the specific, perfect answer is found. Moreover, using these tools is especially great for new agents who can sound like experts due to the simple and intuitive design of the platform.
You can only ensure customer satisfaction if your employees’ behavior with them meets customer expectations, which typically occurs when staff feel motivated and supported.
Offering incentives is a great way to encourage your employees and keep them trying to achieve their best. For starters, you could offer gift cards, family lunches, one-time bonuses, or even cupcakes on their desk, depending on their achievements.
Incentivize customer service and excellence. Let your staff know that greatness awaits them beyond the everyday tasks, and give them positivity to focus on.
It’d be a good idea to talk to your people first and select an incentive that they want, so they’ll work harder for it. Utilizing any technology or contact centre software at your disposal such as a CX knowledge management solution to rollout competitions and incentives has been proven to work great for livepro clients like RemServ – who have won multiple CX Knowledge Management Award’s for their fantastic user adoption and rollout strategies.
Make Processes Easy For Them
Receiving calls, analyzing problems, interpreting knowledge, keeping records, and updating CRMs can be a dull, time-consuming job. Not to mention, dealing with multiple customers every day can make the staff prone to errors that can result in inaccuracies and compliance breaches.
