available now to Bersin by Deloitte WhatWorks® members via BersinInsights™, the
personalized and integrated member information platform, and for sale to
non-members. Summarized in Bersin by Deloitte’s complimentary WhatWorks brief,
the research provides data, including trends in metrics over time, and guidance
to help Learning & Development executives make valuable investment
“As the pace of
innovation accelerates, and companies look to expand their operations,
employees should acquire more
specialized skills and adapt to a workplace that grows more transient, mobile
and self-serving – what we call the ‘borderless workplace,’” said Bersin by
Deloitte’s Karen O’Leonard, lead analyst, benchmarking, Deloitte Consulting
LLP. “Modern learning organizations are embracing these changes by rethinking
how they operate to closely align with business needs. For U.S. organizations,
that means committing more dollars to develop internal talent and to build the
desired skills for competitive advantage.”
The research is
based on a study of more than 300 training organizations representing a broad
cross-section of company sizes and industries. The technology and manufacturing
industries showed the biggest budgetary gains -- both sectors showed 20 percent
upticks in training spending. These significant investments are each backed by
strong rationales. Technology is a high-growth, fast-paced arena that demands
almost constant change. U.S. manufacturing is undergoing major shifts to remain
competitive at a global level.
For the first time, this year’s study breaks out metrics for organizations at different levels of learning and development (L&D) maturity. This is important because the research shows that spending and resource allocations differ markedly, depending on the L&D organization’s focus and effectiveness.
