KPI Details : HR Training & Development Staffing Ratio
Human Resources (HR) Training & Development Staffing Ratio measures the number of employees responsible for employee training relative to the total number of employees working for the organization at the same point in time. Although a relatively high number (i.e., many employees per training and development employee) is desired for this metric, staffing levels should be weighed against the quality of the company's training and development programs, which can impact employee productivity, work quality, customer service levels and turnover rates. In many cases, certain aspects of training and development (e.g., training course design, content development, course instruction, etc.) may be outsourced to a third party subject matter expert.

KPI Calculation Instructions HR Training & Development Staffing Ratio?
Two values are used to calculate this KPI: (1) the total number of Human Resources (HR) employees responsible for employee training and development programs, and (2) the total number of employees working for the organization, company-wide. HR training and development staff members should be counted as any employees that are responsible for the design, implementation, management and administration of the company’s employee training and talent development programs and processes. On a day-to-day basis, these employees may be tasked with developing training materials (with help from internal/external subject matter experts), assisting employees in training course enrollment, analyzing the effectiveness of training programs (and suggesting potential improvements), and working with third-party vendors to develop or implement new training courses.
