Have you noticed that your virtual trainings haven't gone quite as well as your classroom trainings did? Reps quit out of the blue after the first week. No one's interacting (except for that ONE who always chimes in before anybody else can contribute). And when reps get on the call with an actual caller, they're either getting physically ill or going completely blank — like they haven't just spent 6 weeks in training?
Don't worry. Wishing that your reps and co-workers would look at your written procedures and guides (and stop bothering you with questions) doesn't make you a bad person. There's only so much time in the day! But wishing won't get you anywhere. So let's look at why your employees and agents aren't using your resources.
Tell me if this sounds familiar... You were hired/promoted to be a call center supervisor or manager and handed a bunch of spreadsheets or PDFs with your protocols and procedures on them. You didn't create them, but you're now responsible for keeping them up to date. Or maybe you're in this boat... You were hired/promoted to be a call center supervisor or manager and had NOTHING to work with. Nobody had documented anything before you got there. So you opened up Visio, Word, or Excel and started documenting processes and procedures hoping that you could use them to train your reps.
Two of the metrics that are almost always at or near the top of the list of "most important" in a call center are Quality Assurance (QA) and Customer Satisfaction (CSAT) scores. But how can you improve QA scores? And how can you improve CSAT?
If you've downloaded the workbook to begin capturing your processes, you may be wondering, "How am I supposed to fill this thing out?" To help you out, here's a 5-minute video that walks you through the steps of getting your knowledge out of your head and into a guide.
If you're not familiar with what ScreenSteps is, no worries! We created this helpful video to give you a high level overview of what ScreenSteps is and how it will help you help your call center create better guides for your reps.
Are your agents struggling with patient scheduling? Especially during the pandemic when protocols seems to change almost on a daily basis? We recorded a discussion over Zoom to talk about some challenges you will experience when you try to create call guides for reps who are scheduling medical patients. The discussion is broken up into several segments so you can scroll down to the section that interests you the most. Enjoy!
