Contact Center Pipeline Magazine: Inside Our June 2019 Issue

Deliver a More Personalized Experience
Challenges and Priorities Survey

We are seeing record numbers of low unemployment rates—the lowest in the past 50 years. Given the fact that contact centers, by their nature, are typically high turnover, making sure that we do the right things for our agents is critical. Our June issue includes several articles that discuss how to help our agents to be successful. You’ll also find tips and advice on hiring, retention, managing different personalities, retaining top talent and engaging our agents. Please check out our Inside View article this month featuring insights on culture and leadership from Origami Owl.

And, of course, we also cover other interesting, trending and timely topics like AI, omnichannel and personalized service. I hope you enjoy the June issue. I would love to hear your comments about our perspective on these topics.
