Coaching Teams with Simulated Role-Play: A Game-Changer for Contact Centers
In the face of evolving business demands, there exists a pressing need to elevate the coaching capabilities of supervisors. When recognizing the importance of embedding practice into onboarding and coaching in contact centers it becomes clear that a challenge exists: the scarcity of time and resources to engage in daily 1:1 coaching or role-play sessions with every agent in your workforce.
Consider this scenario: the traditional approach to coaching involves labor-intensive role-play sessions run by supervisors who may not be the best coaches. While these sessions can be valuable, the reality of allocating sufficient time and resources to role-play on exactly what the agents needs at the time, every day, presents a significant challenge. A market research report by Procedure Flow shows that programs that require 6 to 12 weeks to train and onboard new agents range from $115,200 to $345,600, accounting for 55% of contact centers.
Furthermore, Screen Steps assures that it typically takes 4-6 months and sometimes longer for reps to be fully proficient. The consequences are profound: Dejected agents attrit, consumers walk, while balance sheets suffer.
