Putting Training Online Saves Money

A recent US study found that employers there spent an average of $1,407 training each employee, though actual spending levels vary from $200 to more than $3,000 per year depending on industry.

According to the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, 85 percent of those expenses come from delivering the training, like instructor time, travel, venue fees, refreshments, etc.


When companies put their training online, they save on average between 50 and 70 percent on the costs of training.

This isn’t to say that eLearning is cheap or without expense. You need to find the right teacher, design an effective course and put the program into production, all of which costs money.

However, each time you use this course to train an employee, you’re balancing those initial start-up costs with the costs of sending employees out to train or bringing a trainer into your company.

In short, your return on investment multiplies with each use. Eventually these courses more than pay for themselves, creating a win-win situation.
