Steps To Create A Bonus Program For Your Call Center

Bonuses are a great strategy for call centers to drive motivation and increase performance. The call center work can sometimes turn monotonous and frustrating leading to high turn-over rates, agent burnout and low-performance metrics. Which is why it's paramount to create effective bonus schemes and incentive programs that motivate the agents, increase performance and enforce positive attitudes in the call center. But when there are not properly planned, they can backfire, creating negative competition, demotivation, discomfort or affect negatively the service levels and profit of the company.

For that reason, here we give you 4 steps you need to consider when implementing a bonus program.

Estimating Agent Headcount

Calculating the number of agents, you need in your contact center in order to offer an excellent service for your customer is not an easy task. You probably have a contact center which by now has grown steadily agent by agent.

That might trigger the feeling of being under or overstaffed or maybe your company will have a big change in department headcount growth, and you need to accurately define how many agents you will need. Well, let me tell you that a simple multiplication will not be enough, and you need to look closer to your numbers to make a correct estimation. Probably you already have heard about the Erlang calculator, but you just don’t know what those required numbers are. Here is what you need to consider.
