Every day, contact center agents work behind the scenes to help businesses of all kinds put their best foot forward for customers. Their work is the foundation of any well-run organization, but their contributions often go unnoticed.
When it comes to making your customers feel appreciated, it all starts with your contact center team. Your agents are on the front lines talking to customers every day. The very best ones make it their mission to go the extra mile, every time. And when you equip your agents with best-in-class omnichannel tools, you give them the power to delight customers via text, chat, phone call, or email.
That’s why we at LiveVox launched the Show Your Agents Some Love campaign and created the Agent MVP Awards to recognize the outstanding achievements of customer service agents moving the needle on stellar support.
We asked you, our community of industry experts and top achievers, to nominate your most-deserving agents—those trusty team players that always go above and beyond, and tell us what makes them so special.
There were many worthy submissions, but only a handful of spots for the cream of the crop. After careful deliberation, we’re excited to introduce to you the first ever winning cohort for LiveVox’s Agent MVP contest. Each Winner is taking home a $200 Amazon gift card* and the distinct honor of knowing they’re the best of the best!
