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

## How to Calculate FTE?

The following steps outline how to calculate the FTE.

1. First, determine the total work hours of all employees (hrs/week).
2. Next, determine the single full time employee work hours.
3. Next, gather the formula from above = FTE = WHE / SE.
4. Finally, calculate the FTE.
5. 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 = ?
