Efficient agents not only make the contact center run smoother, but they create a better experience for your customers. We sat down with Matt Duncan from CommunityWFM to discuss how leveraging some of the best practices in workforce management improves agent efficiency and impacts the bottom line.

In this session we plan to cover four major areas of workforce management.

  • Shrinkage Management (or overhead agent costs)
  • Agent Skill Set Management
  • Making Changes for the Sake of Change
  • The Need for Ongoing Training
