U.S. employers spend an average of $1,208 per employee on training and development, according to the latest statistics compiled by the Association for Talent Development (ATD).
The association’s 2014 State of the Industry Report, published late last year, notes that’s just a 1% year-over-year increase.
Small employers with fewer than 500 workers spent more on training, an average of $1,888 per employee.
The ATD report was based on surveys of 340 organizations of various sizes, representing an array of industries in locations nationwide.
