ATD estimates that in 2012, organizations spent approximately $164.2 billion on employee training. Of this total direct learning expenditure, 61 percent ($100.2 billion) was spent internally. The remainder was spent on external services, which accounted for 28 percent ($46 billion); and tuition reimbursement, which accounted for 11 percent ($18 billion). These types of informative statistics appear in ATD’s annual State of the Industry report.
The State of the Industry report is ATD’s annual review of trends in workplace learning and performance. The report includes data from ATD BEST Award Winners, ATD Benchmarking Forum Members and other organizations from 2001 to date.
