According to our poll, as many as 44% of contact centres fail to continuously help agents to improve their soft skills, with many of that percentage affirming that they NEVER aid their agents in this way.

However, on the flip side, a combined 35% do help “top-up” agent soft skill at least once every three months, with 5% doing so every week.

Weekly – 5%
Monthly – 16%
Quarterly – 14%
Annually – 21%
Seldom/ Never – 44%
