  • Transforming Customer Service: Building a Smarter Service-Oriented Workforce

    Whether a public contact center or an internal help desk, government offices managing customer service play a vital role in supporting their agencies missions. Unfortunately, many service centers lack the tools they need to deliver high-quality services in a timely fashion. In this webcast, Michelle Earley, USAJOBS Program Manager at OPM, and Stephanie Wade, Director, Innovation Lab at OPM, will discuss how they are transforming USAJOBS, the federal government's official jobs site to improve the hiring process and elevate the level of customer service that applicants receive. The transformation is comprehensive, involving the adoption of human-centered design principles, the use cloud-based DevOps to create new services, and the modernization of foundational technology, including the cloud.
