We hardly think of corporate organizations as a discrete group of ‘organisms’ when in fact that’s what they are.
Don’t believe me?
- All organizations, like living organisms, are fighting it out in an ever-competitive business market to remain ‘alive’.
- The ones who can adapt to the environment, evolve with the learning trends, and overcome the business challenges survive.
In other words, ‘survival of the fittest’.
In order to remain in the game, it serves well for organizations to not only remain cognizant of the evolving learning trends and technologies but also to adapt them for improving their training efforts.
To help companies have a competitive edge and get the most out of their buck, LinkedIn surveys leaders and employees alike from global organizations every year and puts together an annual report titled ‘Workplace Learning Report’.
The report encapsulates, among other things:
- Technology-based solutions organizations all around the world are using to improve their training efforts
- Key areas corporate organizations are focusing on to make learning engaging
- New tech trends that are reshaping how training is offered
- Best practices of getting the most out of the training budgets
The 2019 Workplace Learning Report highlights some fascinating insights.
Here are a few key areas that figure in the report:
- How are increased budgets paving way for strategic online training efforts?
- What are the top priorities for the L&D in 2020?
- How to tap into the potential of all learners from Gen Z to Boomer?
- What is the biggest barrier to learning among learners?
For example, did you know that:
- 43% of millennials think they don’t have enough time to spend on training.

- 69% of them underscored that closing skills gap is a top priority.
