How to calculate with awk

I have below awk statement and I need to convert the second field ( substr($0,8,6))from minutes to hours with 2 decimail place. How can I achieve this?

/usr/bin/awk '{print substr($0,23,4),substr($0,8,6)}' /tmp/MANAGER_LIST.$$ >> /tmp/NEWMANAGER_LIST.$$

Thanks for any help!
