@RedJohn : I guess you must have finished your homework now, see below using array you can improve your code,

awk -F, '{

	    dash = sprintf("%0*d", 50, 0);gsub(/0/,"-",dash)

	    print "DEPARTMENTS & SALARIES\nDepartment","Workers","TotalSalary","Average\n"dash

             for(i in Dep_sal )
		print i,Dep_cnt[i],Dep_sal[i],Dep_sal[i]/Dep_cnt[i]
		total_worker += Dep_cnt[i]
		total_salary += Dep_sal[i] 
	     print dash"\nGRAND TOTAL",total_worker,total_salary,total_salary/total_worker

         }' OFS='\t' yourfile

$ ./tester
