What is a Typical Skill Set or Profile of Customer Retention (Call Center) Reps?
Bulisa Nazo
Do you have any ideas on recruitment and selection of the correct profile for retention in a call centre? What set of skills or training programs should one be looking at?
Do you know of a set of KPIs to measure the individual retentions by individual team members? Thank you..
