Amazing Statistics on Training and Development

Are you stressed with attrition and the daily challenge of engaging employees? Disappointed with new learning that does not last too long? Don’t know how to get the buy-in of stakeholders?

Here are some amazing statistics and information that might just actually address your challenges:

1.What can you do to retain and keep employees engaged?

According to Go2HR, with the poor training of employees, 40% of employees leave their company in the first year. Unbelievably, another survey revealed that 70% of employees say that job-related training and development directly influences the employee’s decision to stay with a company or not.

Did you know that 87% of Millennials stated that professional development and career growth are very important? 76% of employees are looking for career growth opportunities. In fact, employees stay engaged when they are exposed to corporate training.

2. How to encourage application of learning?

According to a 24×7 learning survey, only 12% learners implement what they learn from training that they receive on their jobs.

Therefore, you need to ensure that learner’s needs are mapped effectively, monitor the work of your employees and encourage them to apply what was learned on their day-to-day activities.

3. Why should stakeholders invest in learning?

According to a Gallup survey, only 13% of employees are highly engaged at work while 26% seem utterly detached. That’s terrible for any business, as it will definitely affect productivity and profitability, would you agree?

While according to HR Magazine, companies investing $ 1,500 per employee per year on training average 24% higher profit margins than companies with lower training investment do.
