Learner Intelligence Report: Engaging with learning in the reimagined workplace

Pre-pandemic learning and working have something big in common. Rarely, if ever, did we stop and ask: Is there a better way of doing this?
Download Report

Covid-19 gave us a unique opportunity to reimagine the future of work and nearly all of us have experienced a new way of working.

Since March 2020 remote working has increased by 138%. But how has this impacted the way people learn?   

In our Learner Intelligence report, we give a voice to employees to better understand what motivates them to learn and the impact different working arrangements have on their learning.  We’ve also explored several key areas related to the employee learning experience and provided guidance and support to L&D leaders and business leaders looking to make an impact with their L&D strategy.   

In this research report we look at:  

  • The impact of working arrangements on learning. What can employees teach us about learning in a post-pandemic world? 

  • The accessibility of learning. What resources do employees value? How do they find out about new learning opportunities? 

  • Motivations to learning at work. Why do employees learn and how have motivations changed over the last two years? 

  • Learning-related pain points. What barriers do employees face when it comes to learning? 

  • The importance of a supportive culture. How can organizations give employees the resources they need at the time they need them?
