#ICMIchat Recap: Dos and Don'ts of Contact Center Onboarding

Congratulations! You've made it through the recruiting interviewing, and hiring phase. Your new team of agents is heading in for their first day on the job. Your hard work is done, right? Wrong. Onboarding new agents effectively is one of the most critical parts of the hiring process. Get it right, and your agents and customers will thank you. Miss the mark, and your center will feel the negative effects.

Our #ICMIchat community spent some time pondering the dos and don'ts of onboarding in the contact center, and you'll find their tips in the recap below. Want to share what's worked well in your center? Leave your ideas in the comments!
