2013 State of the IndustryThe State of the Industry report is ASTD’s definitive review of workplace learning and development trends. In the 2013 State of the Industry report, sponsored by Skillsoft and the CARA Group, Inc., 475 organizations representing a diverse sample of industries, sizes, and locations report on their commitment to learning and development. ASTD estimates that U.S. organizations spent approximately $164.2 billion on employee learning in 2012. Of this total direct learning expenditure, 61 percent ($100.2 billion) was spent internally. The remainder was spent on external services, which accounted for 28 percent ($46 billion); and tuition reimbursement, which accounted for 11 percent ($18 billion).

To learn more, visit ASTD's Bookstore and download the full report. This report is available in both PDF format and hardcopy. (The State of the Industry is an ASTD member benefit, and is complimentary for all members. ASTD members can download a copy of the report by going to the Store and clicking the "My Downloads" tab.)

As a reminder, ASTD Research handles participant data with strictest confidence and sensitivity, and we report results in aggregates and averages that do not identify participating organizations or organization specific data.
