Why having the right tech to work from home is critical to productivity

Technology typically reaches its best-by date within four years causing devices to work slower, systems to take longer to boot up and applications to crash more often.

Businesses that don’t provide employees with the right equipment and up-to-date tech are likely to be damaging staff morale and reducing productivity.

With many employees now working from home for the foreseeable future, it is more vital than ever that employers invest in the right tools and technology which support collaboration, communication and therefore improve productivity.

Leverage the benefits of at-home agents and create flexible contact centers

Sep 29, 2020 10:27:19 AM / by Jabra posted in Product, Technology

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.

Current data shows that until the crisis, most contact centers were still traditionally on premise. According to Gartner, 90% of global organizations were using on-premise solutions for their contact centers before Covid-19, with nearly 7 out of 10 customer service agents working from traditional call centers and less than 10% from home. Moving forward, they predict that 71% of contact centers will be remote.

Now, as leaders plan ahead to the recovery phase, the question on everyone’s minds is whether agents will stay home forever. So, let’s look at some of the benefits of flexible agents working from home.

In 2019, only 30% of UK citizens were able to work from home*; but in a time when many of us must work from home, it can be harder to get into a new routine. 

When working from home it’s not always in the front of our mind to get up from our desks, to walk around, to stay hydrated or even to get food. We can lose track of time, forget to take regular breaks and become more focused and engrossed in our work and jobs without thinking.

So how do you find a happy medium?
