Contact centers often struggle to attract, engage and retain the top-performing employees who can ensure a superior customer experience. However, equipped with the right tools, technology and best practices, employers in the contact center industry can implement the solutions and processes that elevate performance, ensure competitive advantage and enhance their customers' overall experience. During the J.D. Power and Associates 2014 Contact Center Solutions Roundtable of Champions, FurstPerson's executives will share their contact center hiring expertise in the following sessions:

"Quality of Hire Report Card"

At a time when more than 95 percent of companies don't have insight into the results their hiring processes deliver, companies can benefit from leveraging a combination of technology and statistical modeling to demystify the process. In this session, Brent Holland, vice president of Customer Solutions for FurstPerson, will explore how the use of a comprehensive quality of hire report card can enable the company to create more transparency between the hiring process and business results.

"Certified Panelists Strategic Issue Panel Discussion"

Holland will also lend his strategic insight on the technologies and best practices that can lead to contact center improvement in an expert panel discussion. During this session, Holland will be joined by other operational and strategic leaders in the contact center space to discuss how contact center leaders can enhance their customer experience across channels and act as the catalyst for brand loyalty, advocacy and higher profits.

"Best Practices in Recruiting and Hiring"

To ensure the contact center provides the utmost level of customer service, it must be able to recruit and hire the professionals with the qualities most indicative of success. In this session, Tim McDaris, director of Client Services at FurstPerson, will explain how including assessment testing in the hiring process can help contact centers hire the right individuals, resulting in improved retention, greater performance and better hiring efficiency.

In addition to these sessions, FurstPerson will serve as a silver sponsor event. Additional information can be accessed at: http://www.jdpower.com/events/2014-roundtable-of-champions.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data.
