Shaping the future of learning

Whilst it might sometimes take a little more effort, the benefits that collaboration can bring to your organisation outweigh the costs.

With managers and leaders more interested than ever in understanding the effectiveness of training, it's becoming increasingly important for HR and Learning & Development functions to collaborate to increase efficiencies and deliver a greater return on investment for the business.

  • 57% of companies have at least two departments with some responsibility for training
  • 46% of companies have at least two departments with budget responsibility for training

This lack of collaboration leads to:

  • Increased costs
  • Shared reporting
  • Duplication of work
  • Lack of integrated technology
  • Non-standardised approaches
  • Lack of oversight

Improving organisational alignment is crucial to organisational success and can help drive costs down.
