Throughout the pandemic, many organizations have faced the challenges of training employees remotely. For call center organizations, especially, an effective training program is of utmost importance in order to maintain and provide positive customer experiences. Here, we'll cover five best practices to keep in mind when training call center agents.
An organization must develop and document its vision, mission, goals, objectives, culture, and brand goals at a strategic level in order to craft its agent training content. Role-based profiles should establish knowledge, skills, abilities, and culture requirements that agents need for each role. When organizations understand what each role requires for success, they can hire and train more effectively.
Before organizations delve into ROI analysis of training models, they should establish key performance indicators for training programs. For example, agent performance measurements like first contact resolution and average handle time, as well as new hire agent time to proficiency. Having these measurements helps evaluate the effectiveness of the training program.
A successful training program requires phases with specific time frames, including some stages that repeat past a new hire's typical first 30 or 60 days of training. These phases might include onboarding and new hire training, shadowing or nesting training, and refresher training. By structuring training in phases, organizations can ensure comprehensive and ongoing development for their agents.
Everyone learns and absorbs information in different ways. Organizations must offer training programs in various styles, not just online. This could include in-person sessions, virtual classrooms, interactive workshops, and self-paced modules. By catering to different learning preferences, organizations can maximize the effectiveness of their training programs.
Asking for agent feedback throughout the training process is crucial. It helps develop better training content and delivery methods. Organizations should create channels for agents to provide feedback and act upon it. This ongoing feedback loop ensures continuous improvement in the training program.
By implementing these best practices, organizations can optimize their call center agent training programs. Effective training not only benefits the agents themselves, but also leads to reduced turnover, increased profits, and improved customer and employee experiences.
