Recorded Webinar: How to Build Flexibility into Call Centre Schedules



545
Scheduling staff is essential to match customer demand with the number of employees to provide a great service.

But scheduling can be a great big headache.

Too few staff and service levels suffer, customers become unhappy, employees get burnt out. Too many staff and it costs the organisation a lot of money.

It's a real balancing act!

In this webinar our experts look at how to build flexibility into the schedules.
