Definition - What does FTE (Full Time Equivalent) mean?

SureHire explains FTE (Full Time Equivalent)

Typically 1.0 is the FTE representation of an individual’s full work/school day, while 0.5 would indicate half of the original figure, generally in reference to the workday. In reference to an individual, 0.5 usually refers to the fact that the worker renders less than a full day of work or the student attends less than a full day of classes.
