Major Research Reports
Research Summary: 2015 LMS Trends Study
Brandon Hall Group’s most recent research — highlights of which are released for the first time in this June 2015 report — show that while 85% of organizations use an LMS, implementation of the LMS is changing, companies are not particularly satisfied with their systems, and a significant number of organizations are looking to switch platforms.
Excellence in Practice: Measuring Leadership Development
This report — the first of a new series — is a collection of award-winning case studies that illustrate leading practices in Brandon Hall Group’s areas of concentration — Learning & Development, Talent Management, Leadership Development, Talent Acquisition, and Workforce Management. This report features three world-class organizations in Leadership Development — Walgreens, Turkcell, and Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC).
Leadership Development Requires Redesign
This KnowledgePoints report, based on Brandon Hall Group’s recently released 2015 State of Leadership Development Study, focuses on changes organizations should make in LD practices based on the importance they place on them and the effectiveness our research shows they have.
KnowledgeGraphic: Leadership Development
This KnowledgeGraphic, based on Brandon Hall Group’s 2015 Leadership Development Study, shows the disparity between LD practices deemed important and the extent to which they are implemented. The graphic illustrates the symptoms of a larger problem: organizations continue to struggle to put current and future leaders in a position to succeed even though they know what needs to be done.

Veteran Hiring: We Need to Do More
We don’t do enough for our veterans. We don’t provide them with enough support and opportunities to find jobs when they return from service. And we don’t do enough to train our recruiters and hiring managers about the skills, competencies and value veterans can bring to organizations, says Madeline Laurano in her blog post from the HireVue Digital Disruption event in Utah June 2-4. Military hiring was a key topic there and she discusses ways companies are supporting military members.
From Employment Opportunity to Employment Value
