Last year my average was 75%. As a staff level it was much higher as I had less training, admin, etc. It was probably about 85%.

I think my highest was 115 or 120, lowest was 70, average around 80 or 85. This is over the past 22 years.

First, define your utilization formula, every firm measures this differently. (Charge + innovation) / (2080-holidays-pto-training) High 95% (S1) Low 66% (M2) - yes, that's under 1200 charge hours Average 75%ish

Am I understanding utilization rate correctly? It’s chargeable time over total time? Charged 40 hours and had 10 hours non-charge so my utilization is 80%? If so, wouldn’t it benefit me to understate non-charge hours so my utilization is higher since they only really care about chargeable time anyways? Charge 40 hours still but only put 5 hours non-charge for utilization to be 89% instead of 80%? Or am I misunderstanding how utilization works?
