Overview: Calculating Turnover Hospitals report the number of full-time equivalent (FTE) separations January 1 through Dec. 31 as well as the total number of FTE positions. FTE Separations Jan. 1 - Dec. 31 (Total FTEs on Dec. 31 + Vacant FTEs on Dec. 31) = FTE Turnover Percentage X 100 Replace “FTE” with “Employee” to determine Employee Turnover percentages.
Overview: Calculating Vacancy Hospitals report the number of full-time equivalent (FTE) vacancies on Dec. 31 as well as the total number of FTE positions. Vacant FTEs on Dec. 31 (Total FTEs on Dec. 31 + Vacant FTEs on Dec. 31) = FTE Vacancy Percentage X 100 Replace “FTE” with “Employee” to determine Employee Vacancy percentages.
