|Measure Agent Satisfaction?
69% of respondents stated that they do measure call centre agent satisfaction, with only 31% saying they don’t.

Bi-Annual Employee Engagement Surveys
Perform bi-annual employee engagement surveys with multiple rating questions, for example:
- Direct line relationship
- Growth & development
- Overall motivation and happiness
- Coaching & training
All of these averaged out will give you a weighted CSAT from an employee point of view! Make this a heavily weighted metric for your management team

Listen and Take Action
Take the time to sit side by side and ask what would make their job better or easier.
Then listen and take action. If there are things you cannot do, say so and say why. It is generally the small things like this that can have the most impact.
Thanks to Cheryl
Given the limited and often small survey returns, the most effective way is to calculate sentiment scores after evaluating 100% of all the calls.
It’s often very expensive, but it’s the most accurate way to get agent satisfaction scores.

Yearly Satisfaction Surveys
Yearly staff satisfaction surveys; however, it’s typical to feel that unless it affects senior managers or the bottom line, nothing happens at grass-roots level.

E-NPS Is a Key Focus
We do not currently, but E-NPS is a key focus for us to put in.
We are currently going through a transformation process, and when complete, we want to see if the advisors are happy with the new infrastructure, toolkits, support and training that is available to them.
Thanks to Aby
