In 2022’s Annual L&D Benchmark report we’ve surveyed 772 L&D leaders and their teams to find out what top performing learning organizations are doing differently to positively impact organization growth, productivity, profitability, and transformation.

A key theme running through the report is reimagining workplace learning, with a particular focus on digitalization, cultural innovation, talent and capability, and how L&D teams’ partner with the wider organization. The research delves deeper into these areas and shines light on the need for a ‘people first, technology second’ approach to L&D.

We address the crucial question ‘Is your learning culture keeping pace with rapid digitalization?’ and look at how organizations can adapt a ‘people first, technology second’ approach to their L&D strategy. As well as sharing insights into several key topics the report provides a practical action plan for L&D leaders strengthen their learning cultures, and L&D departments to operate more effectively.

In this research report we look at: 

  • Future-proofing your learning strategy - What key behaviors and capabilities are associated with a future proof learning organization?
  • How to attract, retain, and develop top talent - What behaviors lead to a stronger, talent-focused approach to learning? How can performance management measure impact?
  • Creating a culture of continuous learning - How can L&D teams’ partner with the wider organization to build a culture of continuous learning in the workplace?
  • How to create the perfect blend - How can organizations invest in more cost-effective learning solutions that focus less on technology and more on the people using them?
