What is Schedule Adherence?

The amount of time that call center representatives spend handling calls, available to handle calls (i.e., in the call queue) or performing other work-related tasks (e.g., training, coaching, approved meetings, etc.) as a percentage of total scheduled work time over the same period of time.

Why should Schedule Adherence be measured?

Call Center Schedule Adherence measures a call center's discipline in following defined schedules over a certain period of time. For example, call center representatives may be required to be performing work-related tasks (calls, training, etc.) for a certain period of the day. So, if Schedule Adherence falls below a certain threshold set by the organization, an analysis must be conducted to analyze how representatives and other employees are using their time, and to look for areas where low-value activity can be eliminated or reduced.
