The 2017 Training Industry Report reveals that not only are companies training expensively, but they are also training longer. The average rose 4 hours from last year, with midsize companies training for just over 54 hours. Despite more expense and longer training, 49% of companies reported their training budget remained the same. This means these companies are either training less people, or training is causing them to lose money. In 2017, the average manufacturer spent $1,217 to train each learner, the most expensive, across all sectors.
