Number of learning days per middle management/specialists employee

This measure calculates the average number of days per middle management/specialists employee (i.e. managers with budgetary and/or supervisory responsibility who report to senior management and/or line managers) that were dedicated to learning. It is calculated by dividing the total number of days utilized for learning of a particular task/subject by the total number of middle management/specialists employees dedicated to learning a particular task/subject. As part of a set of Supplemental Information measures, it helps companies evaluate additional variables not covered elsewhere for the "develop and train employees" process.
