Workforce Management is an important function in contact centres but one that is often misunderstood by people outside the WFM team.

This September 2022 WFM for Contact Centre Team Leaders course is designed specifically for call centre team leaders, managers and anyone with a stake in the workforce management process to help them better understand the challenges involved; the impact of on the day staff movements and strategies that can be put in place to optimise the process.

Why invest in WFM training in your call centre?

One of the biggest expenses for most businesses is labour. And when it comes to the call centre, labour costs are typically the largest percentage of your costs. Whilst there is (and will increasingly be) software and systems that can automate some customer enquiries, the majority of call centre work is resource-intensive and that comes with a high price tag.

Aligning your most valuable resources (call centre employees) with customer demand provides a host of benefits. The most obvious is cost (you need less labour to achieve the same if not better result) but there are also positive benefits to Employee Engagement and Customer Experience. They, in turn, reduce costs by lower turnover, higher customer retention etc.

By understanding and applying WFM principles you’ll improve the outcomes for your customers, your business and your employees.

September 2022 WFM for Contact Centre Team Leaders Course Outline

1 Day of Live, Facilitated Learning

The September 2022 WFM for Contact Centre Team Leaders training course has been designed specifically for employees wanting to learn the basics of Workforce Management in the contact centre.  The course includes four modules listed below delivered over 1 day (online) facilitated by the Workforce Optimisation experts in Australia, CallDesign.

MODULE 1: INTRODUCTION TO WORKFORCE MANAGEMENT

With over 70% of contact centre operating costs being related to personnel, it is critical to ensure the right number of staff are in place to optimise the customer experience.

You will gain an understanding of what workforce management is; why it is so important and the challenges that organisations face when trying to optimise the customer experience

We will cover:

  1. The role of workforce management
  2. Why workforce planning is so important
  3. The challenges associated with optimising the customer experience

MODULE 2: WORKFORCE MANAGEMENT 101

To lead a call centre team, it is important to understand what causes fluctuations in service levels. That means understanding the basics of workforce management.

We provide insight into the importance of workforce planning from a manager’s perspective. This includes an overview of forecasting, scheduling and real-time management empowering you as a team leader to make better business decisions.

We will cover:

  1. Forecasting- how and why historical data is analysed and the drivers that influence demand
  2. Scheduling- balancing customer service requirements and meeting service level goals with the scheduling preferences of your staff
  3. Real-time management/ Service Level Planning – strategies to optimise staffing decisions throughout the day

MODULE 3: THE POWER OF ONE

It is important for employees to understand the role they play in building customer relationships as well as impacting the overall service that is provided to customers. Everyone has a role to play and everyone is important!

Team leaders will learn how to explain the impact staff have on service level and customer experience as well as occupancy and profitability.

We will cover:

  1. The impact each individual has on the customer experience
  2. The impact on workload, occupancy and service level when staff are not where they should be

MODULE 4: WORKFORCE ENGAGEMENT MANAGEMENT

Happy staff make happy customers. In fact, academics and business leaders around the world agree that poor staff motivation and high levels of disengagement can lead to a poor customer experience – quite simply, if your staff aren’t willing to put in the effort, your customers will notice.

Therefore it is essential that team leaders are highly competent in managing engagement levels and encouraging better participation and performance.

The final module covers the strategies and techniques necessary to help your managers motivate and engage their teams. It outlines how to motivate staff; where rewards and recognition can fit into your day-to-day process: and a number of proven techniques that can ensure your workforce engagement management initiatives are a success.

We will cover:

  1. The basic principles of staff motivation
  2. Recognition and rewards strategies
  3. Proven techniques to ensure workforce engagement success

I had a fantastic learning experience with the half day Journey Mapping course. Shane was our trainer and explained things thoroughly, used great practical examples and helped through the exercise when needed. He was very knowledgeable and engaging. The group size was not too big so everyone was able to contribute online. I feel confident to 'give a journey map a go' now, thank you. Helen

The Introduction to Contact Centre Management is an excellent course for those looking to understand contact centres from a helicopter view and benchmark their operations. From the fundamental pillars to critical KPIs and performance metrics that underpin almost every contact centre globally, Justin is personable and professional and speaks with authority on a topic he knows intimately.

We have done a few training courses now through Justin and the CX Group.In these sessions the facilitator has been Dan Ord and Dans knowledge of the Contact Centre world is second to none. This was great for us as we attended as a team to ensure that the training that we received was able to be applied across my entire management team and also allowed me to drive the right outcomes based on Dan, Marcus and Justins advice and guidance.The best thing about this is that this was not one of those courses that you attend and then nothing more is said or done with this. . . Dan/Justin offer their email address so if you come up with additional questions later that you want guidance on you can ask and they are more than willing to assist.Dan, Marcus and Justin thanks for facilitating this training and we will sure be intouch for other training courses that we would like to run through the CX Group.Bec Goss

The CX Management Fundamentals course was exceptional, a balanced blend of best in-class examples and theory . Daniel was the utmost professional, sharing his wealth of knowledge in customer experience and contact centre management. Content was relevant and covered an array of business examples. A course that exemplifies two-way participation (no death by PowerPoint). The diverse group of attendees had the opportunity to share their experiences and knowledge, which was priceless. I highly recommend this course for anyone in the customer experience realm, even beginners like me.

I learnt a lot about CX and the course gave me clarity on the 6 main competencies. The training was fun, enjoyable, I can recommend to anyone who is passionate about the "Customer" subject. Daniel is very knowledgeable and experienced, he used real life business examples to understand both the strategic and tactical elements of CX. He also involved us which generated even more credibility.

Another great course put together by Justin presented by their partners at Omnitouch, Daniel and Marcus.The "How to Design a Quality Assurance Program for Contact Centres" was extremely fitting for our organisation as we transition to a new telephony system.The course was not one of those courses where they give you the answer and a few templates sending you on your way. Daniel and Marcus take you through why an appropriate framework should take into consideration the Organisations, Mission Statement, Values and Customer Service Charter.As the session was run via Zoom, it enabled and encouraged networking opportunities not only across Australia but also with International attendees. This was a fantastic benefit as it allowed us to draw on each others lived experiences.I really encourage you all to check out the courses and information that CX Skills has to offer as they are the best place to not only continue but to also start your learning and development!

The training provided manages to take complex sales strategies and make them easy to understand and implicate in a sales call. It provides a structure that isn’t stifled by wordy scripts and pitches, and guides consultants towards a successful outcome for both the customer and consultant.This training took efficient, tried and tested sales concepts and expand on them to not only generate higher conversion, but a more positive customer experience.Aside from the training, which was amazing, Simon - the trainer - was a pleasure to work with. He was attentive and showed a real passion and desire to enhance the trainee’s sales expertise.I would recommend CX Group to anyone who will listen!

I recently attended the Contact Centre Management Fundamentals course and found it extremely useful and relevant. Daniel was extremely knowledgeable on all topics and handled questions with ease. He was a great trainer and i found the session had a great mix to suit all learning styles. I have taken so much from this course, the networking opportunities as well as the CX website and associated resources. I highly recommend attending if you are looking to better understand contact centre management regardless of what level you work at.

Justin created a great call centre fundamentals program for our organisation, based on the skill gaps needed filling. Although it was at the height of the Melbourne lockdown the session was still interactive, interesting and achieved the desired result.

Really enjoyed course on handling difficult customers. I came away with a number of tools that I can use not only with customers, but also day to day life.
Justin from CX responded promptly to my training enquiry. He heard what we wanted and we discussed best way to present this during Melbourne Lockdown. He conducted the introduction to contact centre leadership remotely with a small group. He weaved his contact centre experience with humour and activities that were appropriate and engaging. At the end each person agreed that they learnt lots and were going to apply at least one thing back in their role. I would highly recommend CX and Justin for training and support.
