What Works for Managing Remotely? What Doesn't?

Many organizations have rapidly shifted from a physical contact center to one where most, if not all of their team, is working from home. And many made the shift almost overnight.

In this webinar on-demand, we share insights from Calabrio customers who successfully guided their teams through this transition and they share their biggest lessons learned during the rapid shift to work from home.

Watch the webinar to learn:

  • What the biggest challenges were in shifting to a WFH model
  • How they maintained strong customer service levels during the transition
  • What are their best tips for scheduling, training, evaluating and managing a remote workforce
