Free Webinar: Micro scheduling, peak shaving and split shifts: Innovations in Planning and the homeworking operating model. Sponsored by Sensée

Hosted on 16th July 2020

The switch from bricks & mortar to work-from-home contact centres during the current crisis has posed challenges for IT, HR and Operational Management. But it’s also proven to be hugely beneficial, delivering substantial benefits for organisations and work-life-balance benefits for employees.

In this webinar we examine innovations in Planning and the homeworking operating model - including micro scheduling, peak shaving and split shifts. As well as explaining the meaning of these terms we’ll show how, by applying these innovative techniques to example scenarios, organisations can boost productivity, cut costs and deliver improved work-life-balance.

Free webinar: Trade secrets every planner should know about WFM reporting & analysis sponsored by injixo

27th May 2021, 17:00

Each time round the WFM cycle, high-performing planners analyse and report on what went right and what went wrong. The goal is that with each iteration, the forecast becomes more accurate, the staffing requirement includes the right shrinkage, the schedule efficiency is higher, the agent adherence is better, and so on. Continuous improvement is the name of the game.

Just as with every other part of the WFM cycle, there’s a right way and a wrong way to go about reporting & analysis. What’s more, since late 2019 we’ve all been bombarded with numbers and charts in the daily news. Now everybody thinks they are statisticians. Join Ian Robertson of The Forum and Simon Waldron of InVision as they reveal some hot tips that work in 2021 and beyond. If you want to take your reporting & analysis to the next level, this webinar is a must-attend.

In this webinar, you will learn:
 - The most important KPIs
 - How to choose the right level of detail
 - The dos and don’ts of data visualization
 - About telling a story with your data
 - How to use your data to drive change
