This metric is based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Guidelines. It covers one of the requirements of Indicator G4-LA9 - 'Average hours of training per year per employee by gender, and by employee category'.

Maintaining and improving human capital, particularly through training that expands the knowledge base of employees, is a key element in organizational development. This Indicator provides insight into the scale of the organization’s investment in this area and the degree to which the investment is made across the entire employee base. Access to training opportunities can also support progress in other areas of social performance, such as ensuring equal opportunity in the workplace. It also contributes to motivating improvement at the personal and organizational level.


This metric is looking for the average hours of training per male employees during the reporting period:

For WikiRate researchers:

Companies who align reports to GRI’s Sustainability Reporting Standards often include a GRI Content Index or Annex where GRI disclosures, with GRI codes, are listed.

  • Use the GRI Index, CTRL F, Command F or search button on source preview to search for this index and metrics within the report

  • Use G4 codes, G3 codes or keywords to quickly find values, keeping in mind that some companies report on the metric using different terms, e.g. G4-LA9 or LA9, training or development

  • Always check the metric question and methodology for the unit of measure or currency - researchers may need to carry out calculations or conversions before entering the final metric value

  • Add comments documenting exactly where within the source you found the information (page number) and include details of simple or complex calculations or conversions made to determine the metric value

  • If you are unable to locate a metric value in a source you can search for additional sources where the data is available and add a new source

Further guidance on how to research values for GRI-based metrics is available here, including detailed guidance on adding, editing and checking metric values.

Global Reporting Initiative compliance guidance for companies:

To calculate the average hours of training that the organization's employees have udertaken during the reporting period - G4-LA9-a:

  • Identify the total number of male employees.

  • Identify the total number of training hours undertaken throughout the reporting period for all male employees.

  • Identify the average number of training hours undertaken by male employees during the reporting period. (Average training hours per male employee = total number of training hours provided to male employees / total number of male employees).
