A full-time equivalent (FTE) is a unit of measurement that can represent the total number of hours worked by one or more employees that equates to the hours worked by a full-time employee (2080 hours a year for a full time employee). So, for example, if you have two part time employees, each working 20 hours a week, together they represent one FTE.

FTEs are calculated by adding up all of the hours worked by part time employees during the month and dividing them by 120.
