The pie chart shows the yearly duration of four different in-house professional training sessions in a large company while the bar graph outlines what managers and secretaries think about it. Overall, the duration of technical training is higher than other types of training and most of the managers and secretaries of this company opine that these training sessions are important for their job.
According to the illustration, the yearly duration of technical training is 30 hours which is exactly double and treble than that of career and interpersonal skills development training. Health and safety related sessions have the least duration, 5 hours per year to be precise.
