Rightsizing the Contact Center – Customer Care Staffing Ratios

Presented by

Jeff Rumburg, Managing Partner at MetricNet

About this talk

One of the most common questions I hear from contact center managers is “How many agents do I need to support our customers?” It’s a great question, but one that is rarely answered adequately. The result is that many contact centers are not staffed properly because they do not follow any sort of proven methodology when making headcount decisions. Instead, they rely on “gut feel” or “instinct” when it comes to contact center staffing. In this webcast, MetricNet defines a methodology for determining the appropriate headcount for the contact center. Using MetricNet’s headcount methodology, your customer care functions can be assured that they will be staffed to meet the needs and expectations of their customers, while simultaneously delivering services in an efficient, fiscally responsible manner.
