Global Workforce Reveals Learning And Development Not Meeting Their Needs;

79% of employees would like to see a bigger focus on Learning and Development at work. 85% currently struggle to access training in their workplace. And, only 16% of employees find learning offered in their work very effective.

New research published by City & Guilds Group, the leading global skills organization, reveals that while employees around the world have a strong appetite for learning, they are inhibited by a lack of accessible, appropriate and engaging training opportunities. Learning & Development Research by City & Guilds The study, conducted by City & Guilds Group business Kineo, surveyed 6500 employees and 1300 employers. Across 13 markets they found that 79% of employees would like to see a bigger focus on training and people development in their workplace.

With many failing to see a positive impact of learning and development (L&D) on either their career progression (39%), performance at work (29%) or understanding of their organization and sector (32%). So, It is clear current programs aren’t quite hitting the mark!

The research shows that access to training is a major obstacle. 85% of employees saying they have experienced problems accessing L&D activity in their workplace. Respondents cited not having enough time to get into training as a significant barrier. Along with technical issues and design flaws.

For 59% of employees, the current training content they receive is not always considered exciting or engaging, making it clear that content and delivery methods need a global overhaul.

According to the study, employees are calling for a more curated and bespoke approach to training. They list more personalized (38%) and bitesize (26%) content as well as a better blend of on- and offline training (26%), as key to more effectively equipping them with the skills for the future.
