Why should Training Hours per Employee be measured?

Training Hours per Employee measures the number of hours existing employees (does not include new employees) spend training in relation to the number of employees undergoing training over the same period of time. While existing employees are expected to be periodically trained to keep up-to-date on new policies, procedures, technologies (includes tools, equipment, etc.) as well as to sharpen their existing skills, an overly high value for this metric can be indicative of inaccurate demand forecasting for employee training, sub-par employee performance, highly manual training procedures (i.e., excessive use of physical classrooms instead of online training modules, etc.) and poor training session structures (i.e., impractical, irrelevant and uninteresting training sessions). Extremely low values for this metric can also be an issue and can be indicative of inaccurate demand forecasting for employee training, inefficient scheduling procedures for employee training, and poor employee performance tracking and management. Values at both extremes in in this metric can influence increased employee frustration and turnover.
