Example of calculating FTE
In counting FTE remember that you are counting the labor normally available to the library - positions both temporarily empty and those filled. So start with the positions the library had on June 30.
Say person A normally works 5 hours a week.
Person B normally works 2 hours a week.
Person C normally works 12 hours a week.
You could calculate the FTEs separately and add them together.
Divide the hours a person normally works a week by 40.
Person A works 5/40 of a full time week - or .125 FTE
Person B works 2/40 of a full time week - or .05 FTE
Person C works 12/40 of a full time week - or .30 FTE
Total is .475 FTE which rounds to .48 FTE
Add up everyones normal hours in a week. Divide the total by 40.
A + B + C=19/40 or .475 rounding to .48 FTE
