What is Full -time Equivalent (FTE)?

FTE stands for "Full-Time Equivalent", which is the total amount of hours that a single full-time employee has worked over any period.

  • Full time equivalent is based on a full-time basis of the time one employee/worker has worked.
  • This method is used by organisations to convert the hours of part-time employees into FTE units by calculating the sum of part-time and contract employees divided by the FTE unit.
  • There are different reasons for business using full-time equivalent, for example, profits per employee or benchmarking revenues.
  • There are laws in place to state how to carry out calculations correctly, such as The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

How is FTE Calculated?

At a typical UK company, FTE would probably be the standard 40-hour workweek:

  • Eight hours per day,
  • Five days per week.
