2012 State of the Industry

By  ASTD Research

State of the Industry, 2012

The State of the Industry report is ASTD’s definitive review of workplace learning and development trends. This annual report includes organization benchmarking data from ASTD BEST® Awards Winners, Fortune's Global 500 Companies, and other organizations from 2002 to date. ASTD estimates that U.S. organizations spent $1,182 per learner on employee learning and development in 2011. Of this total direct learning expenditure, 56 percent ($87.5 billion) was spent internally. The remainder was split between tuition reimbursement, which accounted for 14 percent ($21.9 billion), and external services comprising 30 percent ($46.9 billion).

(The State of the Industry is an ASTD member benefit, and is complimentary for all members. ASTD members can download a copy of the report by going to the Store and clicking the "My Downloads" tab.)
