Wie gebräuchlich ist die Abkürzung FTE? Sollte man die beim ersten Mal ausschreiben? Bzw. wie würde ich FTE dann in die genannten Sätze einbauen?

In the company where I work (60,000+ employees world-wide), FTE is common human resources usage, but stands for full-time employee (ie., full-time permanent, not on contract)

Thanks for the input, RES-can. Interesting point.

Any further thoughts, suggestions, anything? On how to translate the whole sentence in particular?
"These seasonal workforce/manpower are necessary/required as a full-time equivalent..." sounds terrible, doesn't it?
