How can your call center build a customer-centric culture, experience, and reputation?

You could come up with a new call routing flow, better call deflection techniques, new talk track scripts, new targets and financial incentives, but those are workarounds, bandaids. Instead get to the heart of the issue. If you want to build a call center that consistently delivers outstanding customer results and furthers the relationship with your customers, the most direct path is by focusing on your call center agents’ experience in their role and within your organization.

How could that be? How could focusing on something that makes your agents’ work lives better and easier impact anything to do with customers?

Simple – Because of the Law of Congruent Experiences…

The Law of Congruent Experience 

Employees will deliver a customer experience that matches their own experience in the organization.

Indifferent employees mean indifferent customers. Disengaged employees put in minimal effort to take care of the customer. Customers respond in kind. In contrast, employees who are engaged and trust their employers will provide a great CX because they are more supported and energized at work. You don’t need to rely solely on call scripts or a patient’s bill of rights to keep them from damaging your brand. A terrific Employee Experience equals a superb, loyalty-winning, profit-creating customer experience. – Source

It makes sense when you think about it. Your employees, especially those in the most customer-facing 

roles ARE the way most people experience your brand directly. The kind of interactions that leave an imprint and cause people to rave OR rant about your company. And, if the people in those roles are generally unhappy, stressed, or disengaged from their role, that angst will find its way into the interactions with your customers.
