Learning Growth Is Slow or Flat

Learning Growth Is Slow or Flat

The Bersin & Associates “2008 Corporate Learning Factbook" provides an in-depth look at the spending, staffing and programs of learning organizations. The report analyzes metrics such as expenditures per learner, cost per student hour, program priorities, budget allocations, staffing sizes, staff-to-learner and staff-to-total spending ratios, technology usage and budgets, and outsourcing spending — all by industry and company size. 

According to the report…

>> Training budgets and staffing are continuing to grow, but at a slower rate.

>> Per-learner spending is essentially flat, primarily because organizations have more employees to train.

>> Organizations are spending the largest percentage of their budgets on leadership development and management/supervisory training.

>> Cutting-edge groups are using new approaches to better address the learning needs of younger workers.

>> Learning is being integrated with performance and competency management initiatives.

>> CLOs are aligning closely with overall corporate strategy to increase effectiveness.
