360Learning - The average L&D salary is…

Is money a taboo topic in your household? What about on a coffee date with friends? At the lunch table at work? When does it pay to talk about compensation, and when is discretion the best policy?

If you want our two cents, salary transparency goes a long way in giving employees what they really deserve. It also empowers people to make smarter career decisions, which is why we surveyed over a thousand American and British L&D professionals about their salaries. We asked how much they make, what professional challenges stand in their way, and what has most helped them advance in their careers. (If you want to brush up on your French, you can check the survey results from France, too).

As we learned from our Great Resignation studies, while compensation is a critical factor, it isn’t everything–people also expect meaningful work with the right learning support. We want to acquire new skills in the flow of work, whether through learning to incorporate product management principles into our L&D approach, helping transform our companies into a Learning Organization, or better understanding ‘how we do things around here’.

So, how does your salary stack up? Dive into our survey results to find out! Don't forget to join the L&D Collective and connect with us on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter!
