Use an Erlang calculator
First break the Monthly figure down to weeks - typically divide by 4.2.

Then apply weeks into days - bearing in Mind that you get more traffic on a Monday than a Friday.

Then apply to the Erlang Calculator

You will need to use a weighted average on new vs exisiting staff to get the right AHT.
