Since 2003, the business research group Towards Maturity has conducted extensive, high-quality studies on the most up-to-date learning practices and trends for organizations. Towards Maturity’s “2015 Industry Benchmark Report” is based on extensive research involving more than 600 people, two-thirds of whom are Learning and Development (L&D) leaders.
