In 2021 ATD Research published the State of Healthcare Training, which provided benchmarking data on key healthcare training indicators, delivery methods, techniques, and technologies. In this updated report we’ll expand the definition of healthcare to include all sectors of the industry as defined by the global industry classification standards. This would include healthcare equipment/supplies, healthcare providers and services, healthcare technology, biotechnology, life science tools/services, and pharmaceuticals. This is an expansion of what was considered healthcare in the 2021 study (acute care hospitals and nonacute facilities).

Some key data points we will be covering:

  • The average direct learning expenditure in healthcare organizations is $963 per employee.
  • On average, employees at healthcare organizations used 19.5 learning hours per year.
  • 70 percent of respondents used at least one type of learning technology in their training programs.
  • 75 percent of respondents were at least moderately affected by staffing shortages.


Primary Capability Covered: Business Insight
