Accelerating Contact Center Onboarding with SymTrain 

Can you visualize cutting speed to green in half? How about lowering 90 day attrition by 35%? Would cutting retraining by 75% help?   

Speeding systematic high performing agent onboarding holds the key to addressing a major concern confronting modern contact centers: employee attrition. A special report by Contact Center Pipeline reveals that over a quarter of contact centers grapple with substantial attrition rates, even in the first 90 days, leading to issues such as prolonged call queues, decreased average handling time (AHT), and ultimately, a drop in customer satisfaction (CSAT) levels.  


That is the reason why innovative brands with strong L&D teams have started to look for ways to bridge staffing shortfalls arising from attrition, ensuring the seamless flow of business operations. To tackle any of these evolving obstacles, a burgeoning range of inventive onboarding and training solutions has emerged, aimed at expediting the learning curve and swiftly orienting new hires.  

Amongst those, automated role-play is one that easily provides tailor-made, immersive learning journeys, empowering agents to rapidly grasp the expertise required for effective customer interactions.
