What is Agent Utilization?

Agent utilization is a workforce management metric that indicates agent productivity. It is really just the ratio of agent work produced divided by their work capacity. While it is pretty straightforward, agent utilization can be a bit complicated to measure because it typically takes into account breaks, vacation and sick days, and a few other variables. With utilization, higher is better, because low utilization indicates that your cost per agent-assisted contact is higher.
