When schools around the world went into lock down earlier this year, the individuals responsible for servicing their on-campus technology infrastructure faced a monumental challenge, with absolutely no notice: virtualizing learning environments and classrooms to maintain education and enable students to continue their development from home.

The challenges have likely been the biggest faced by these institutions and IT teams, as they have not only needed to equip and train educators in delivering classes and curriculum virtually, but also enable students around countries to securely access these classes and learning management systems. Thankfully, collaboration hardware and software organizations have also reacted rapidly to enhance virtual learning environments. But, there are still many considerations in the digital transformation of the educational experience.

In 2020, there was worldwide disruption as the Covid-19 pandemic hit, and contact centers everywhere were radically upended by the chaos.

Call centers were forced to close while call volumes skyrocketed, and agents faced increasing call complexity and customer concerns in a time of disruption. Industries like travel and hospitality were overwhelmed, and contact center leaders had two top priorities: keeping agents healthy and business running, at a time when customer service is intrinsically linked to a company’s bottom line.

An increasing number of businesses are currently working on their digital transformation strategies to make their company more efficient, productive, and scalable.

And yet this approach regularly contradicts and pushes the boundaries for how many organisations operate in reality.

Managers carefully select the best talent by going through a lengthy recruitment process. Once they’ve hired the right candidate, they put them in an office environment where they are statistically interrupted every 11 minutes by endless ‘quick questions’. According to a UC Irvine study, it will then take an employee around 25 minutes to get back to the place they were at before the distraction.
