CONNECTING L&D TO A TOTAL TALENT MANAGEMENT STRATEGY
Results from Mercer's Strategic Learning & Development Survey APAC 2010/2011 reveal interesting findings and implications around the extent to which L&D investment is aligned with corporate strategic objectives.
Some of the key findings indicate that:
- Organizations believed learning and development (L&D) was a key driver for implementing corporate strategy. However, L&D investment decisions and deployment actions only partially support this notion.
- Overall spending on L&D is significantly lower amongst Asia-Pacific organizations than that of organizations in the US and Europe.
- Few HR departments are effectively building a long-term business case for L&D investment.
Measuring the effectiveness of learning and development initiatives as they relate to strategic workforce development goes beyond just looking at ‘trainee satisfaction’, but too many organizations stop there. How does your organization compare with others in the region?
