2018 State of the Industry
Spending on employee learning continued to be strong in 2017, according to the Association for Talent Development’s 2018 State of the Industry report, which is sponsored by American Management Association International and LinkedIn Learning. A diverse group of 399 organizations provided data on their learning programs. This is the sixth year in a row that has seen an increase in direct learning expenditure. Organizations spent $1,296 per employee on learning in 2017. This represents a 1.7 percent increase from 2016, when the average spend per employee was $1,273. The number of learning hours per employee remained healthy as well; it was 34.1 hours (slightly more than four eight-hour workdays) in 2017, which was the same as 2016.
