Your schedule adherence was near 100%?

We define schedule adherence (conformance) as subtracting all agent time off the contact platform (breaks, lunches, meetings, etc.) and then ensuring that the remaining time logged on to the contact platform is delivered. This measure should be as close to 100% as possible.

What if…
Your occupancy rate was in line with regional best in class standards?

We define occupancy as the amount of logged on time when an agent is in a customer facing state (talk, dial, wrap, not ready, etc.). The reverse of this measure is often referred to as agent Idle time. Industry standard for occupancy ranges from 85-95% across the globe.

What if…
Your shrinkage rate was in line with regional best in class standards?

We define shrinkage as any paid time where an agent is not allocated to be logged into take contacts. This is often broken down into out-of-office (absence, holidays, etc.) and in-office (meetings, one-on-ones, coaching, etc.). We see this can reach level of 30% and above.
