Work at Home and Its Impact on Business ContinuityVIEW FREE ON-DEMAND
The flexibility of a work-at-home-agent model has rapidly evolved into a highly viable solution for contact centers.
According to an Everest Group report, the number of work from home agents has grown an average 17% - 19% per year over the last several years with no signs of slowing down. Given record-low unemployment, a tight job market and unexpected disruptions like the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the flexibility of a work-at-home-agent model has rapidly evolved into a highly viable solution for contact centers. As a result, in addition to high agent satisfaction and increased productivity, companies that have adopted the at-home model also saw access to niche, specialized talent pool, improvements in customer satisfaction, lower employee turnover and, more importantly, minimizing impact from disruptions and ensuring business continuity.
