Sector Benchmark Reports

Sector Benchmark Reports are generated from our annual Benchmark Study. By cutting our research into industry sectors, we provide deep insights into the learning trends, challenges and strategies of organisations in that sector. Sectors covered include IT and telecoms, retail, mid-sized businesses, charities, professional services and more.

How to use this research

Our sector benchmark reports provide insights into how organisations in a particular sector are developing their learning and performance strategies using technology. This data helps learning professionals understand what is working in peer organisations without having to learn the hard way – trying something out that doesn’t work. Our data helps de-risk decisions and shape effective learning strategies.
