What’s the most important investment you can make?
Are you investing in your employees and yourselves personal development? Or, with the economy, is this an area you have consciously cut back?
In a recent article from The American Society for Training and Development (ASTD), executives report a slight decline in learning development funding. In spite of this, they still acknowledge the importance of investing in employee learning and development.
“The findings in our latest State of the Industry Report clearly demonstrate that executives and business leaders know their investments in employee learning and development are keys to survival, recovery, and future growth,” says Tony Bingham, President and CEO of ASTD. “Training and the reskilling of the workforce is a strategic driver for companies worldwide. We are encouraged to see that, despite economic uncertainty, business leaders know learning matters.”
The report shares that on averages, businesses invest $1,081 per employee for learning and development. The specifics of these investments vary; however, a large percentage is invested in external resources in the form of workshops, seminars, and conferences. While these environments provide value, learning development effectiveness and retention can be a concern for leaders. Many have experienced sending their employees off to a 2-3 day seminar, their returning “fired-up”, only to watch this energy fizzle within weeks of the seminar.
