Management-to-staff Ratio

    Management-to-staff Ratio is employee key performance indicator that shows the ratio between total number of managers and supervisory employees and total number of full-time and half-time non–managerial (non-supervisory) employees. Management-to-staff Ratio is calculated by the formula:

    Management-to-staff Ratio = (N+(S-1))/S, where:

    N=Number of non–managerial (non-supervisory) employees S=Combined number of managers (top-, and middle managers) and supervisors (first level managers).

    It is important to define responsibilities and roles of your employees because sometimes there can be some difficulties as to what category (supervisory or non-supervisory) the employee can be referred to. For example, a project manager (team leader, program manager) allocates tasks to employees, reports on updates of the project to manager, but does not make general decisions related to employees (leaves, rewards, discipline) . In this case such project manager can be considered a non-supervisory employee.  

    There is no ideal management-to-staff ratio because it is specific for each company and depends on several factors. Some of them are the responsibilities of managers and employees and organizational level of your company.

    Management-to-staff ratio along with other related KPIs help define optimal management span of control and track the health of your company in terms of organizational development.
