Workplace flexibility a key factor in retaining employees AND customers.
To an employee it might mean being able to adjust his/her schedule in real-time when they have car trouble.
To a customer it might mean being connected to the right help, regardless of channel or time of interaction.
To a business it might mean shifting resources to avoid costly overtime and missed service goals.
Workforce management (WFM) solutions can help enable workplace flexibility; but different channels and functions require different capabilities.
Read the eBook: What You Need to Know about Workplace Flexibility, to learn the unique WFM functionality needed in:
- The omni-channel contact center
- Your back-office operations
- Across a branch network.
We realized the contact center is only 20 percent of our staff, while 80 percent of our staff resides in back-office processing units. So we launched an initiative to expand the scope of workforce planning to include all back-office areas.
