BenchmarkPortal will be hosting a certification training workshop for call center managers at AutoTrader.com in Atlanta, GA, April 15-17, 2014. Attendees will receive an exclusive tour of the AutoTrader call center, which is known for its innovative design and employee engagement programs. This is a BenchmarkPortal Center of Excellence site tour that shouldn’t be missed. The certification workshop is composed of information-rich modules that offer lectures, discussions and learning activities in the form of case studies that examine practical problem solving and current best practices. Originally developed by Dr. Jon Anton of Purdue University, the curriculum has been expanded and updated by Bruce Belfiore, Chancellor of the College, Jose Perez, Dean of the College, and BenchmarkPortal’s staff of industry experts.
The course focuses on specific areas of call center management that include organizational leadership, human resources, quality monitoring, customer satisfaction, the basics of WFM forecasting and scheduling, call center technologies, technology-enabled processes, knowledge management, caller self-service, analytics and reporting, and benchmarking.
Small class size allows for one-on-one interaction with the instructors, as well as networking opportunities with colleagues and industry peers. Participants also leave with “take aways” that are meant to enable them to make a real difference in their centers.
Participants in these workshops typically include Call Center Managers, Directors and Vice Presidents. The courses are designed to enable these leaders to better manage their call centers and strengthen relationships with other departments. Every attendee receives complete course documentation and a comprehensive workbook.
All call center training courses by BenchmarkPortal include access to a complimentary Benchmarking Report and web-ex style presentation of the individual’s benchmarking results with their College instructor, following the course. Managers report that they really appreciate the combination of interactive classroom work along with personalized focus on individual needs and challenges. This approach is considered to be unique to BenchmarkPortal's College of Call Center Excellence training.
True quality call centers exist as a result of quality training. BenchmarkPortal helps your employees get the training they need, so that your call center performs at the levels you and your superiors expect. "The training was more than I expected,” said Inger Hainsley-Bennett, Customer Service Manager, Companies Office of Jamaica. “It was applicable to any call center, whether you have 4 people or 400. It brought home real life examples and experiences which definitely are designed to help support supervisory and management decisions. The training provided more than a cursory glance at topics like customer satisfaction, quality assurance, human resource management to name a few. The value of detail I got from the data analysis and reporting module opened my eyes to how to effectively utilize data generated from the center. Overall this experience provides you with an arsenal of information to guide you to be a better manager and challenges your creative process as you go through the normal paces of work. This was an eye opener, a true "WOW" learning experience. I am glad I was a part of this experience.”
