Ann,

Good point. Training often gets overlooked as an important employee benefit.

Some companies will report on their employees' annual compensation and benefits statements the amount of money available to employees through tuition reimbursement programs to make them aware that education and training are part of the total rewards package being offered. I'm sure some report the actual funds spent by employee.

"21%of all training dollars - overall - are spent on leadership development and management/supervisory training, making this the largest area of investment on a cross-industry basis."

This sounds wonderful, but my experience is that most companies spend very, very little on timely training in supervisory skills for their first time and front line leaders. It also seems common to label training in form-filling and prophylactic HR as "leadership" training.
