OSR – workforce
The Online Services Report (OSR) collection contains 2 measures of the workforce of organisations – full-time equivalent (FTE) staff and FTE vacancies.
Full-time equivalent (FTE) is a standard measure of the size of a workforce that takes into account both the number of workers and the hours that each works. For example, if a workforce comprises 2 people working full-time 40 hours a week and 2 working half-time, this is the same as 3 working full-time (an FTE of 3).
In the OSR this is the count of:
- employed staff – how many FTE positions an organisation paid the wages or salary for at 30 June
- visiting staff – how many staff worked for but were not paid for by the organisation during the collection period
- vacant positions – how many vacant positions there were at 30 June.
The following boxes show key results for 2021–22.
