Accueil » Blog » IE 1.10. Total number of full-time equivalent (FTE) employees during the reporting year

The question about the total number of full-time equivalent (FTE) employees during the reporting year is an essential component of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) reporting. This measure provides a clear overview of the company’s workforce, suitable for accurate comparison and analysis within the industry.

1. How to answer this question ?

To answer this question, it is necessary to calculate the number of full-time equivalent (FTE) employees at the end of the reporting year. This involves considering all employees, including part-time, temporary contracts, and others, converting them into full-time equivalents. The calculation is generally done by adding up the hours worked by all employees over the year and dividing the total by the standard number of hours for a full-time employee over the same period. It is important to refer to the calendar year or the financial year specified in the report.

2. Why is it important ?

This measure is crucial for several reasons. Firstly, it provides a clear indication of the size of the company’s workforce, allowing for fair comparison with other entities. Secondly, it sheds light on the company’s commitment to creating jobs and supporting full-time employment. Finally, it serves as an indicator in assessing the company’s social performance, a central aspect of ESG criteria, reflecting its impact on society and the local economy.

3. Examples :

– Example A: A company with 100 full-time employees and 50 part-time employees working 20 hours a week (against 40 for a full-time) would have a total of 125 FTEs (100 full-time + (50 * 20 / 40)).

– Example B: If a company employs 200 people, of which 150 are full-time and 50 are working 75% of full-time, it would have 187.5 FTEs (150 full-time + (50 * 0.75)).

These examples demonstrate how to convert the number of employees into FTEs to accurately answer the question posed in the ESG reporting framework.
