Workforce Management Consultants | Fifth Quadrant
Fifth Quadrant is one of the leading workforce management consultants. Running a successful service organisation means managing the numbers and perhaps the most important number of all is the number of resources required to service your customer contacts. In the 2012 Fifth Quadrant Industry Profile Report we found that Human Resources continues to be the major cost for contact centres in Australia (75%) and New Zealand (72%).
It’s no surprise then that calculating how many staff are required and ensuring that the right people are available at the right times is important. Workforce Management is the art and science of having the right number of people, in the right place, at the right times while meeting a given service level. It can cover the following areas:
- Real Time Management
- Analytics (Performance Management)
If your calculations are incorrect and you have too many people working, your staff will get bored but if you don’t have enough people and staff occupancy is too high, it will lead to staff burn out. It is therefore extremely important to get it right. If you believe your Workforce Management could be improved but aren’t sure how to do it, Fifth Quadrant offer the following services:
- Workforce Management Diagnostic Review
- Workforce Management Skills Assessment and Training Programme
