Free Webinar: More than the Great Resignation in partnership with Davies

Watch at your own pace

The continued challenge of recruitment and retention is nothing new for the contact centre industry, with increasing levels of staff turnover and the challenge of retaining knowledge. The potential impact on costs, service and customer experience are clear – but what are the underlying reasons for this and what should organisations be doing to tackle this problem head on?
 
A broad range of initiatives are being adopted, some of which previously may have been restricted to start-up and high-tech organisations. Unfortunately, there isn’t a “one size fits all” silver bullet and the broadening chase for talent means that a range of dimensions needs to be continually reviewed and addressed.

Join Philip Michell, Consulting Director at Davies on the 08 September for The Forum’s webinar, as he reveals insights into the issues and explores the underlying reasons why the “Great Resignation” is impacting contact centre teams disproportionately, and what employers should be doing to address these reasons to return to stability.

Free Webinar:Can Contact Centres ever become an employer of choice? in partnership with QStory

Watch at your own pace

Dave Vernon, Director at The Forum is joined by Nerys Corfield, Injection Consulting & Rhea Hall-Spencer, QStory for a lively and informative chat about why contact centres are failing their agents.
 
Staff turnover in contact centres is up to double the national average. Their reputation for being inflexible and unrewarding places to work not only has an impact on recruitment and retention but also on customers. Companies need to create environments where agents can thrive, and they need to do it now.
 
We will discuss how a focus on engagement, enablement and empowerment of agents, supported by technology can be a game-changer for your business.

Free Webinar: Learning From Regret from Rising Vibe

Watch at your own pace

Regret isn’t one of the most celebrated emotions we experience, and many people talk about having ‘no regrets’, and reflecting on it as something that is bad or wrong.

Focusing on the situation that we regret can feel like dragging the weight of the past with us, and this will drain our energy and mean we are less available for life in the present. However, we can choose to move away from past regret by applying what we have learnt from it, and therefore transforming the energy to something more constructive and creative for our future self.

During this session we explore how we can use regret to our advantage by noticing patterns, what human beings tend to regret the most and what we can do about it going forwards.

Free Webinar: Breakdown to Breakthrough with Rising Vibe

Watch at your own pace

Goals, targets, outcomes and objectives are important. Having a focus and something to aim for is motivating for most people. However according to research 98% of us will die without fulfilling our dreams* and only 8% of people achieve their goals.**
 
So why is this? Based on our experience working with many individuals, and entire organisations, it’s all about trying to do too much too quickly. Baby stepping might not be as sexy as a quantum leap, however it is a sure way to move forwards.
 
In this webinar we will explore:
 - The difference between a baby step and a quantum leap
 - The impact of negativity bias on our motivation
 - The 4 steps to define the perfect baby step outcome
 - How to breakdown our barriers to breakthrough and move forwards using the Rising Vibrational Scale
