Enter the total work hours of all employees (hrs/week) and the single full time employee work hours into the FTE Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the FTE.

## FTE Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the FTE.

FTE = WHE / SE

Variables:

- FTE is the FTE (full-time-equivalents)
- WHE is the total work hours of all employees (hrs/week)
- SE is the single full time employee work hours

To calculate the full-time-equivalents (FTE), divide the work hours of all employees by the single full-time employee work hours.

## How to Calculate FTE?

The following steps outline how to calculate the FTE.

- First, determine the total work hours of all employees (hrs/week).
- Next, determine the single full time employee work hours.
- Next, gather the formula from above = FTE = WHE / SE.
- Finally, calculate the FTE.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total work hours of all employees (hrs/week) = 500

single full time employee work hours = 40

FTE = WHE / SE** **= ?
