Let's face it, finding the right work-life balance in a contact center isn't easy. It takes guts to make changes in your center that allow agents to balance their personal life with the company's needs. Unfortunately for contact centers, ignoring an agent's need for work-life balance has high costs. One study from Indeed found that "More than one in four employees (27%) in organizations that are not perceived to support work-life balance plan to leave their companies within the next two years." High turnover is extremely expensive, and employees who feel like they don't have time for family and personal time are more likely to abuse sick leave, experience burn-out, and avoid tasks. If you want to hear ideas about what you can do to improve work-life balance at your center, attend this CallTalk episode.
