NEW YORK, May 23, 2022 – Last week, Atento’s Global Chief Commercial Officer and USNS Director, Cathrine Jooste, took part in a virtual discussion amongst a panel of CX Leaders to examine some of the current challenges and opportunities in the outsourcing landscape.
Topics were selected based on the recent rise in the number of teams being outsourced, which include varying formats, including a blend of in-office and working-from-home arrangements. In order for organizations to ensure improved program performance and productivity given these new working methods, employee engagement and tool selection were highlighted as key.
In this regard, some of the advice the corporate brand executives delivered focused on the solutions companies could put in place to overcome the challenges that have become prominent given changes to new working methods. These included how to tackle new labor market realities, and understanding geolocation quality, cost, and culture dynamics, in addition to clarifying work from home strategies, and the skillsets required from next-generation agents.
Following the discussion Cathy Jooste, CCO and USNS Director, Atento commented, “Remote working has meant huge changes in the oursourced model, including ensuring employee engagement. The key to driving agent performance in a remote setting revolves around possessing the correct setup of virtual tools and maintaining a constant relationship with agents. It’s not just about having KPI reviews and addressing areas of opportunity, it’s about making our employees are part of the brand experience. Ultimately, improving customer satisfaction starts by building a team of satisfied agents, and empowering them with industry-leading tools.”
