Often company OKRs (Objectives & Key Results) focus on metrics that don’t have an obvious connection to the work a support team does day-to-day. It is incredibly difficult for an individual support agent to truly see how they contribute to areas like sales targets or corporate margins through solving customer tickets. This disconnect can lead to support agents feeling like their work isn’t impactful and reduces engagement within a Support team.
