Agent training is imperative to running an effective contact center. Service Level can't be met properly without training your employees effectively. Training starts with several components from selecting the right agent with the right set of skills to providing ongoing coaching and feedback. Here are six things about agent training your organization should know:

Your contact center is the front line to your customers and is critical to the image of your company. In fact, customer service in your contact center can have a bigger effect on customer loyalty and sales than a new website, logo, or storefront. People want to have their concerns heard and handled. You may feel like resources are scarce, but it is easy to overspend in the contact center. Here are five areas to evaluate and how you can find extra money and time in your contact center:
All call recording is not the same, and that is especially true if you have a blended or outbound contact center. Outbound contact centers have unique technology, compliance rules, and scripting. These systems are designed to optimize calling to attempt to ensure live connections with the intended recipient. Being able to easily find recorded calls and deliver them for review, may not just be for quality assurance, but also proof of regulatory compliance. Here are five key concerns you should know if you want to record outbound calls:
Know how technology works - Most blended contact centers use a separate dialer for outbound calls that may not be from the same vendor as their phone system. If call recording is only connected to the phone system, recordings are one continuous recording for the entire calling session. If call recording is only on the dialer, direct dialed or inbound calls are not recorded. Having a system that integrates to both systems allows you to record all calls on your phone system and sub-divide dialer calls into separate recordings. It is also important to be able to identify campaigns and other call statistics provided by the dialer. This is especially important for regulatory concerns. If you are audited, you want to be able to confidently present all of the relevant calls without providing information or calls that are out of scope.
