    Which "some of his employees"? How many employees were in his sample?

    The standard error of the mean (SEm) for a distribution of means is like the standard deviation (SD) for a distribution of scores.

    SEm = SD/√n, where n = number of subjects in his sample.

    Does this help you answer the question?
