call center shrinkage

Call center shrinkage is a measure of how much time is lost in the call center because of things like bathroom breaks, call backs, paperwork, team meetings or training. Shrinkage, which is represented by a percentage, is used to calculate how many agents should be scheduled to work a shift so that all calls can be answered in a timely manner.
