Still not convinced of the value of training? "Keys to Profitability," one of the many economic studies we have conducted, examined the differences between profit leaders and profit challengers. The findings showed:

  • Profit leaders spend a higher proportion of their payrolls (over twice as much, in fact) on education and training than do profit challengers.
  • Profit leaders are more likely to have formal training programs for top management, administrative, production/technical, and sales and customer service employees.
