GovCX Roundtable #1: 

Lessons Learned from Key Gov CX Leaders

Thursday, June 25, 2020 at 11am ET

Key government CX leaders from across the government will share how they have responded to the demands of COVID-19, from moving to remote work for employees to the creation of new programs, or delivery of existing programs. 

  • What has been the impact on the government and industry staff?

  • How has this impacted employee engagement?

  • Where were the gaps in being able to deliver services internally and externally?

GovCX Roundtable #2: 

The Drive for End-to-End Digital Services in the Post COVID World

Tuesday, July 14, 2020 at 2pm ET

One of the findings during COVID-19 has been the need for the public and employees to interact and engage with the government through end-to-end digital services. Whether it’s paying your taxes, obtaining healthcare, understanding and collecting benefits, knowing where and when it’s safe to return to their pre-COVID lives. The public experienced many new and touchless experiences in their personal lives such as depositing checks online (which we could do previously) or scheduling and having a telehealth appointment, ordering groceries or food and having it delivered (pre-paid) on your front porch. How can the government leverage these experiences and the way they are conducting business now - keep what works and tweak what doesn't?  What are the tactics that allow the government to respond with speed, efficiency and effectiveness?

GovCX Roundtable #3: 

Lessons Learned from Contact Center Operations in the Post COVID World

Wednesday, August 12, 2020 at 2pm ET

COVID-19 has demonstrated the public’s need to be able to connect with a person via their channel of choice especially when the online and self service options aren’t solving their problems. Thousands of customer service representatives in government and industry were moved to remote work in a short period of time. How do we prepare for this in the future? What have we learned through this experience that can prepare us for future challenges and more importantly, what did we learn that we should continue to practice?

Many agencies, including the Department of Health and Human Services’ Center for Disease Control (CDC), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Federal Student Aid and USAgov among others have experienced increased calls to their contact centers and increased traffic to their websites. For example, CDC Info has increased their calls and emails to 16,000 calls per day and emails to 2,000 per day. Went from 50 agents to 250 agents and 24/7 coverage. HHS’ National Results Notification Center has more than 260 onsite and home-based agents that notify 10,000 individuals per day of their COVID-19 test results. At Federal Student Aid’s CARES Act Implementation, FSA sent more than 2 million letters to student loan holders and made system changes to support the waived payments - all within 10 days of the waiver’s enactment since the Act temporarily waived payment on student loans during the pandemic.
