The State of the Industry Report is ASTDs definitive
review of workplace learning and development trends. This annual
report includes data from ASTD BEST Awards Winners, ASTD Forum
members, and other organizations from 2002 to date.
ASTD estimates that U.S. organizations spent $125.9 billion on
employee learning and development in 2009. Nearly two-thirds of the
U.S. total ($78.6 billion) was spent on the internal learning
function, such as staff salaries and internal development costs.
The remainder ($47.3 billion) was allocated to external services
such as workshops, vendors and external events.
