Driving Business Benefits – Sector Benchmark launched

by | Mar 27, 2009 | Articles

Individuals with responsibility for implementing learning technologies in their own workplace were invited to participate in the Towards Maturity Benchmark between October and November 2008.

Over 300 organisations took part and 7 sectors had 25 or more organisations providing data, allowing us to dig in deeper and compare sector experiences.

  1. Education
  2. Public services
  3. Health
  4. Finance
  5. IT and Telecoms
  6. Professional and technical
  7. Service activities

This annex to the Driving Business Benefits report, summarises key differences between these different sectors in relation to their experiences of learning technologies in the workplace.

We take a closer look at the following for each of the 7 sectors:

  • Drivers for e-learning investment
  • Benefits
  • Technologies and services
  • Skills offerings
  • Barriers to change
  • Implementation strengths

Who will benefit from this report?

  • All who participated in the Benchmark review – you can compare your results with others in your sector
  • Those new to e-learning who are looking for specific evidence to back your business case for your sector
  • Learning providers (both public and private) looking to improve learning provision and customer care within specific sectors

This annex is part of a suite of research reports. The full research findings are discussed in detail in Driving Business Benefits (feb 09), but this Sector Perspectives report provides a sector view on some of the key findings that we trust will be useful for both employers and learning providers in those sectors.

Challenging Perceptions

The corporate learning market is rapidly evolving to meet the ever-changing demands of work and worker. The C-suite and L&D leaders can no longer ignore that over 90 percent of organizations do not realize the full value of their investments.

All you need is Evidence

All you need is Evidence

Every year over $400billion is spent on corporate learning globally, yet only 15% is proven to stick. Investments in learning are continuing to grow year on year but performance impact is not changing. The industry is still struggling to provide real proof of impact, in fact, for the first time the Towards Maturity Index is tracking a significant decline. This is causing leaders to have low confidence levels in L&D.
