Press: Reed Learning joins the Towards Maturity Ambassador Programme
Reed Learning, a leading global provider of learning solutions and part of the REED Group, today announced that it is the newest member of the Towards Maturity Ambassador Programme, an elite group of industry leaders who support independent L&D benchmarking around the globe.
Reed Learning’s focus on learning that has real business impact fits perfectly with the vision and values of the Towards Maturity Benchmark study, which aims to support organisations that want to accelerate performance.
Laura Overton of Towards Maturity said:
“We’re delighted to welcome Reed Learning on board our Ambassador Programme. Their philosophy of bringing solid organisational change that is founded on real-world research mirrors our core beliefs and the overall aim of the Benchmark study which is to help businesses change and grow through learning innovation.”
The Towards Maturity Benchmark is an internationally recognised longitudinal study on the effective implementation of learning innovation. The research continuously surveys and studies how people learn at work, and uses this data to help L&D professionals assess and improve the appropriateness, effectiveness and efficiency of their learning provision. To date over 3,500 organisations and 16,000+ learners have helped to shape the benchmark which now reaches 44 countries.
Nick Bradley, Managing Director of Reed Learning said:
“Towards Maturity has been analysing learning impact and performance for over 10 years, with some of the world’s biggest companies, and can provide true insight to support improvement. We see this as hugely credible, but it’s more than this … Towards Maturity offers the ability for an organisation to benchmark its learning effectiveness, clearly blueprint a new approach and ultimately increase return on investment. We are proud to be associated with an organisation that creates tangible business value.”
To celebrate the strategic partnership, Reed Learning will host an event in September with Laura Overton and a select group of learning leaders. The event is free to attend, exclusively for senior HR, Learning & Development and Talent Management leaders in organisations that want to collaborate and accelerate learning performance.

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.
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.
Having clear evidence is a vital starting point in identifying where improvement is needed and backing up your business case for change. We spoke with Emma Smith, Head of Talent at FirstPort Limited, a residential property management company. She had used the Towards Maturity Learning Health Check in a previous role and has now brought this tool to her new organisation in order to help transform their workplace learning culture.
Towards Maturity Learning Health Check provides an ideal starting point for organisations wanting to improve their development, by giving clear evidence and comparisons with high-performing learning cultures. To get a real idea of how the Health Check has a proven business impact, we spoke with Robin Lilly, Capabilities and Leadership Development Director of Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company, to hear his experiences.
Evidence is vital to backing up a case for change and even more powerful when internal data is being compared against high-performing learning organisations.
