Full-Time Employee (FTE)

A full-time employee (FTE) is someone who works a regular number of hours for an employer. In most cases, a full-time employee works at least 35 to 40 hours per week. The exact number of hours that constitutes full-time employment can vary depending on the company and the industry in which it operates. Some companies may consider employees who work fewer hours per week to be full-time, while others may require employees to work more hours in order to be considered full-time. Full-time employees are typically entitled to a range of benefits that are not offered to part-time employees, such as health insurance, paid time off, and retirement plans. These benefits are typically based on the number of hours an employee works, so a full-time employee is more likely to be eligible for them than a part-time employee. The number of full-time employees a company has can be an important metric for investors and analysts, as it can give insight into the company's growth and financial health. A company with a high number of full-time employees is generally considered to be more stable and successful than a company with a low number of full-time employees.
