Results are in: what are you training?

Latitude CG conducted an online training survey to get a bird's-eye view into training programs. We had 179 participants from a variety of industries, all with knowledge about their organization's training program's objective.
In this series we will break-down each question asked to participants and our findings. Based on the survey results as a whole, future plans consist of getting more out of their training program on a reduced budget, as well as get more people trained with less effort. The goal is to prepare workers to be able to achieve their performance potential and grow the business.
Question #2: What is the primary training program for?
What it means?
Although career development is an important aspect of training, it accounts for only 14% of training compared to skills development and performance improvement which accounts for 55% of the training. This indicates the majority of training is focused on delivering immediate improvements in organizations and extended enterprise performance.
As a matter of fact, typical comments for this question were:
"We train for everything except career development"
"Our program trains technicians so they are familiar with how to use our equipment"
We are seeing a major shift in corporate America’s outlook on training. Executives know a better trained worker equals better performance and a substantially higher ROI. This is no secret; they've known this. The results of our online survey conducted throughout the 2018 calendar year reveal the relevance organizations are putting on their training programs.
