Agents are your contact center’s biggest assets, but how you train them can either make or break their performance. After all, a contact center is only as strong as its agents, and agents are only as strong as their onboarding and training enables. Comprehensive onboarding and perpetual training enhance the agent experience, which in turn leads to an increase in employee retention. When agents have the tools they need to deliver exceptional CX, agents are more likely to find satisfaction in their work and will stick around longer.
