Platform Challenge and Solution

Platform Challenge: Contact centers undergo constant employee turnover, which makes it difficult to keep employees up-to-date on company policies, procedures, and new products and services. Contact centers need a solution to quickly onboard and train new employees.

Leaders have to identify high and low performance against defined KPIs to reward high performers and provide coaching and mentoring to employees who need it most. A tailored, appropriate, and precise development plan is vital.

But often, gauging performance is a challenge because KPI metrics are spread across multiple systems. Contact centers need a solution that brings this data together to provide a holistic scorecard to ensure an accurate and comprehensive view of performance.

Motivating and engaging employees to perform well can also prove challenging. Often, employees must navigate different systems or locations to complete tasks or understand their performance expectations. Having a centralized, at-a-glance view of tasks and clear, up-to-date information on their performance helps alleviate employee pains of working in a contact center and improve contact center KPIs like employee turnover, engagement, and productivity.

Platform Solution: Genesys Cloud CX provides a best-in-class workforce engagement suite for managing the end-to-end employee performance and development journey.

The solution enables effortless delivery of training, informational content, or assessments to employees to help employees onboard, learn, and stay up-to-date on vital information within your organization. These modules can be delivered automatically based on rules or manually assigned, allowing managers to build customized learning and development journeys for employees.

Genesys Cloud CX gives employees a single, holistic view of the information needed to perform their role successfully. Performance metrics from across the contact center are consolidated into a unified, gamified scorecard that can be viewed by employees and managers to understand performance across defined objectives. Employees can see where improvements are needed and compare performance amongst their peers for increased motivation, peer-to-peer learning, and improved performance.

Managers can quickly identify performance gaps and easily bring together interactions, evaluations and supporting documents to set up and conduct coaching sessions to improve KPIs.

Genesys Cloud CX lets you deploy powerful workforce engagement capabilities for onboarding, learning, coaching, performance management and gamification from a single platform. The solution makes the lives of your employees better by minimizing traditional, tedious manual processes and promoting a more collaborative working environment.
