Everyone knows great business results can’t be achieved without highly engaged, highly skilled employees – and that it takes learning and talent development to develop them. However, many learning and development professionals are concerned about proving the value of their programs to the executives in charge of approving their budgets.
Here’s the problem they face repeatedly: Seventy-four percent of CEOs want to see ROI on their learning and development programs, yet only 4 percent do. Further, 50 percent of learning and development is wasted, as employees don’t apply what they’ve learned on the job. These roadblocks create serious challenges to learning and development professionals who must not only ensure that their training works but prove it as well.
