Are you looking for Important HR statistics about training and education?

We hope these top 5 HR statistics about the need and importance of training/education help you.

It absolutely astonishes us the number of idiots in senior leadership roles (even CEOs) who on one hand will argue that they know training and education are critical for business success but on the other hand starve it of the resource, time and investment it needs/deserves.

The reverse of these idiots is organisations like Tesla, SpaceX, Starlink, Nike, Google and others who evidence their significant investment in L&D by their outstanding operations and business performance measures.
