How do you accurately measure the effectiveness of your learning and development function? Can you provide clear evidence that your team are delivering value for your organisation? And how do you compare to other L&D teams?

If your answer to any of these questions is: 'I have no idea', then benchmarking might be a good place to start.

This week on The Good Practice Podcast, Owen and Ross G are joined by Carrie Horvath and Gent Ahmetaj - the team behind the Learning Performance Benchmark - to explore benchmarking and how it can help you develop your strategy.

We discuss:

  • what benchmarking is
  • the benefits of benchmarking
  • the value of collaboration and competition in a community.
