The reasons why the last quarter of the year can be the best one, yet still turn into a wave of customer dissatisfaction are pretty clear:
- It’s the period of the year when your customer hunts for the best shopping deals. It might (naturally) increase the number of new support tickets.
- Your customer support agents are still humans. In addition to work issues, they face a lot of personal challenges as well. Holidays aren’t a good time for improvisations, so make sure you have a good plan for them.
- It is common to hire more people during the rush holiday season. Despite your busy schedule, don’t ignore proper onboarding. Get yourself and your team on the right track with processes that are verified and work.
