73 Percent of contact center training to remain virtual post-pandemic.

SAINT JOHN, NB, CANADA - June 10th, 2021 - ProcedureFlow, a revolutionary knowledge management solution, conducted a study into the current state of contact center training in 2021. The survey targeted contact center leaders responsible for training and training resources, to answer questions such as: What is the true length of training and onboarding time? What are the greatest challenges and areas of improvement when it comes to training? What does the future of contact center training look like post-pandemic?

The study found that over half (55%) of contact centers take 6-12 weeks to complete training & onboarding for new agents. The challenge of long training and onboarding times became evident when survey respondents were asked about speed to proficiency. Over a third of contact centers stated that it takes between 5-7 months for new agents to reach proficiency. Furthermore, contact center leaders listed “helping agents reach proficiency faster” as the greatest area of improvement in their training program.

“The demand for shorter training times and improved onboarding experiences is proven through our recent Market Study,” says ProcedureFlow CEO Daniella DeGrace. “We’re happy to be able to play a part in helping contact centers better prepare their agents, and reach proficiency faster”.

When it came to remote training, 73% of respondents said that at least portions of their training will remain virtual post-pandemic. To learn more about the current and future state of contact center training, download the full report, available now.
