For many employees, corporate training is perceived as a waste of time or a chance to get away from their desks for a day, but for corporations, training delivers quantifiable results.
In an infographic from Protential Human Capital Development, the ROI of corporate training is calculated across an organization. By providing statistics from empirical research, Protential makes it evident that corporate training directly impacts a company’s bottom-line in a variety of tangible ways.
Here are some highlights from the statistics provided in the infographic that show how corporate training can affect companies:
- 86% higher company value
- 47% increase in company-wide profit margins
- 16.3% increase in cash flow
- 300% reduction in employee turnover
- 5% increase in customer retention
- 21% increase in productivity
- 6.5% increase in sales
- 9.5% increase in customer satisfaction

I say a hearty amen to your post. As one who has been an HR professional / corporate training and development specialist for a number years this has been an on-going challenge — dialogue. In fact I recently wrote a white paper on this very thing entitled The Big Disconnect – How the Lack of Measuring is Undermining Your Profits | https://joanncorley.com/uploads/TheBigDisconnect.pdf

Hi Susan – you are preaching to the converted…not only to train and develop employees, but to measure it as well. I discuss it at length in this white paper: The Big Disconnect – How The Lack of Measuring is Undermining Your Profits – https://joanncorley.com/uploads/TheBigDisconnect.pdf
