Background

The Spotlight Sector Benchmarks draw on the organisation’s nine-year track record of producing the leading European Industry Benchmark. Drawing on data from 1,800 organisations, The Towards Maturity Benchmark is considered the most comprehensive independent review of the use of learning technologies in the UK workplace. (The 2011-12 report is available for free download at: www.towardsmaturity.org/2011benchmark).

Participants in the 2011-12 benchmark also received a free personalised benchmark report on completion of the study. This personal report can be used in conjunction with the industry spotlights to directly compare your current learning technology progress with your peers. If you took part in the 2011 benchmark but did not download your personal report, please contact [email protected] to find out how you can access it.

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.
