Contact center call volumes are increasing exponentially, resulting in supervisors dealing with agent assessments on more of an exception basis than as a normal course of business. While the expectations are that all agents will adhere to call scripts, manage conflicts and comply with regulations while treating customers with empathy, how do you make sure?
There Is a HUGE Gap in How Agents Are Evaluated
With the industry norm of only 5% of calls being listened to, the risks are becoming increasingly high for issues to be missed.
Harried Analog Supervisors:
- Rely on a limited, randomized approach
- Evaluations are prone to bias and inconsistency
- Manage by exception, usually voice only
- The day’s realities impact the completeness of the review process
How do contact centers increase their ability to listen to and properly assess agent script adherence, regulatory compliance, conversational tone and positive customer engagement while showing empathy and respect?

In addition, the ability to extract, on an ongoing basis, specific examples of recurring behaviors—both positive and negative—helps both agents and supervisors identify what works and what doesn’t, eliminating another recurring issue preventing success in most contact centers.
The result is that agents will benefit from more time spent being proactively coached, leading to agents being more motivated and engaged. When properly equipped to handle any type of interaction, they’ll more easily deliver positive outcomes, consistently.
