Balance Work-from-Home and Office Staffing: WFM Tools to Enable the Work-from Anywhere Workforce
With COVID-19 vaccines becoming more prevalent and people feeling better about being in public spaces, more companies are considering if, when and how to bring employees back to the office. There is still uncertainty about how safe it will be to return to a traditional centralized contact center model or whether we should keep the workforce at home.
Many contact centers are evaluating hybrid approaches, using both remote and on premise schedules. In this webinar, Aspect subject matter experts will discuss how workforce management features can be used to seamlessly enable “work-from-anywhere” agents. We’ll also review the how to leverage a mix of remote and in office workers to get the best of both worlds.

Developing Passion for People’s Preferences
For decades, we in the contact center space have realized the importance of ensuring we have the right number of right skilled agents at the right time. The culture has been changing and we all realize we need to empower the agents with more control of their schedules while still meeting the demands of the business. This session will explore different paradigms to ensure preferences are considered while generating schedules. Nick Martin and Paul Chance from NICE will be leading this discussion.

Driving Results Through Employee Engagement Initiatives
Employee engagement is more relevant than ever for industry leaders, as companies are adapting to changing employee expectations in the workplace, digital transformation, and the need to attract and retain top notch talent. In addition, employee engagement has a direct impact on staffing optimization and other key areas of contact center operations. NICE has unique angles and ROI considerations on this topic for organizations that want to drive higher employee engagement.
Attend this webinar and join the discussion about the business value of employee engagement initiatives for customer service and sales organizations. NICE will be sharing research data related to engagement initiatives, and discuss solutions to increase engagement through employee autonomy and improving the agent’s work-life balance.

Planning for the Future: Artificial Intelligence within WFM is the New Reality
How can contact centers predict what their needs will be in 3 years or 5 years? Technologies have improved not just the ability to create accurate forecasts with the help of artificial intelligence, but the need to provide solutions that are intuitive and easy to use. The ability to model what if scenarios and provide innovated ways to reverse solve for different variables help contact centers be prepared for the future.
