Optimising investment

Learning is a central part of your investment in your organisation and its people. But how can you get more out of your L&D budget?

Get the most out of your training budget


Increasingly training has to pay for itself in terms of business benefit and enhanced performance. It is no longer acceptable to have expenditure that is not measurable against business objectives. So demonstrating (and then improving) ROI on L&D investment is top of the agenda.

Many learning programmes have potential training overspend, but ensuring the right people have the right skills is a critical part of an organisation's planning.

News International managed training programme


Removing the inefficiencies of internal learning provision should improve the bottom line, but can management control also be retained?

We worked with News International to ensure training was aligned to the particular business needs, so that the associated learning delivered real benefit and business advantage to the organisation. This involved deploying a suite of services:

  • bespoke and blended learning
  • learning consultancy
  • training project management
  • administration
  • supplier management
  • service management and course search/booking systems

The focus on relevance allows cost savings to be identified in a far more strategic manner but with the right impact on both company development and bottom line:

  • Significantly reduced cost of training (average cost reduction of 39%)
  • Targeted training provision and learning effectiveness (90% customer satisfaction)
  • Administration and delivery resources available on demand, offering effective utilisation of trainers
  • Reduced administration and procurement costs
  • Integrated approach to learning and development
