In addition to ICMI's most popular classes, this Symposium will offer two new courses that will place a special emphasis on improving writing skills. Directors, managers and supervisors responsible for monitoring, coaching and/or quality improvement in written channels will learn best practices around email and chat:
Helping Agents Write Great Email and Chat to Customers Your agents may have plenty of experience delivering excellent service on the phone, but how can they improve written communication? This workshop will help identify elements of effective email and chat messages. You'll learn about the difference between "small picture" and "big picture" writing skills and how each affects service quality. After the workshop, you'll have a better idea about whether an individual agent can improve his or her writing skills enough to email and chat with customers or whether that agent needs to stick to the phone.
Scoring the Quality of Email, Chat, and Social Media Customer Service In this day-long workshop, you'll learn which standards to use when scoring the quality of written customer service. You'll practice using E-WRITE's Scoring Tools and discuss how to adapt these tools to your organization's needs. The class will also focus on the importance of coaching as you develop your agents' writing skills.
