U.S. L&D Benchmarking Survey: 2018

U.S. Survey

Talent development is a key driver in moving American organizations forward. We surveyed L&D managers and directors in some of the U.S.'s largest companies to learn how they are investing in talent, how they measure the impact of workplace learning, and what attitudes different levels in the organization hold about corporate learning.

In order to better underline the connection between L&D and company growth, we added an additional layer of analysis by segmenting companies with increased revenue in the last financial year.

We hope that you're able to use this survey to help you benchmark your L&D department and organization against others in the nation and illuminate the challenges and trends that will shape the near future.

Finish reading the U.S. L&D Benchmarking Survey to learn:

  • Training budgets, number of training days and L&D departmental budgets of organisations across the United States.

  • The most popular training mediums and topics of 2018
  • The most common challenges L&D professionals face
