Contact Center Pipeline Magazine: Inside Our May 2022 Issue

FROM THE MAY 2022 ISSUE

From the Heart

Know what I love best about the contact center industry? It is as relevant and as important today as ever. We are continuously challenged to find better processes to improve our customer experiences and employee successes.

We tackle many of these issues this month. We discuss a topic that is on everyone’s minds these days, Cybersecurity. With more WFH programs and sensitivity to our personal information, we discuss coaching security, protecting our data, making cybersecurity your priority, and compliance. Naturally, we always cover the “human” side of our centers. Perhaps it is here that we can find much reward as we discuss turnover and “good” turnover, engagement, and human experiences.

Enjoy the issue!
