We took a deep dive into the amount of budget and time these companies (and their employees) dedicate to learning and then mapped this data to how these organizations perform in terms of key business outcomes – such as employee engagement, productivity, retention, and revenue growth – to gauge the impact of learning. While other variables may have also influenced these business outcomes aside from learning & development, here’s an infographic highlighting a sneak peek on what we discovered when it comes to learning and employee engagement. For all our data insights, you can download the full report here.
