Having the right number of employees to provide outstanding customer service and respond to the state’s transportation needs, especially during emergency situations, is an important part of MoDOT’s effort to use resources wisely.

At the end of fiscal year 2021, the total number of full-time equivalencies expended decreased by 255, compared to the end of FY 2020. Decreases have been seen in all areas with the largest decrease in salaried employment. This number is significantly lower because of the Shared Work Program. Decreases in overtime, while not as significant, can be linked to the department's efforts to reduce overtime during FY 2021 due to budgetary concerns related to the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

A target of 5,360 FTEs was set for FY 2021 to reflect the average number of hours required to provide outstanding customer service, perform work safely and to fully respond to the state’s transportation needs.

Purpose of the Measure:

This measure tracks the change in the number of full-time equivalencies (a calculation of hours) expended within the department and compares it to the number of FTEs in the legislative budget.  

Measurement and Data Collection:

This measure converts the regular hours worked or on paid leave of temporary and salaried employees, as well as overtime worked (minus any hours that are flexed during the workweek), to full-time equivalencies. In order to calculate FTEs, the total number of hours worked or on paid leave is divided by 2,080. For comparison purposes, data for salaried employment is annualized, whereas temporary employment and overtime data represent actual year-to-date calculations. This measure does not represent salaried headcount.

The target for this measure was set by management directive.
