The survey is seen as the industry’s most accurate source of work and pay information. As an incentive for taking part, participants can win an Apple Watch Sport – worth up to £339. Blue Eskimo’s survey runs every year – this is its eighth year.
With just a few days left, Nick Bate, director at Blue Eskimo, says that learning professionals shouldn’t miss out on a chance to get their voice heard. “The survey is referenced by employers and employees alike,” says Bate, “helping both keep an eye on not only salary expectations but also attitudes to work. Plus, this year we have a really great incentive – the brand new Apple Watch.”
The only qualification for taking part in the survey is that the person must work in a training, e-learning or learning & development organisation or learning department.
Blue Eskimo publishes the results online, free – and a copy will be made available to members of the Learning & Performance Institute – and will be distributed at February’s Learning Technologies conference and exhibition, which runs from 3–4 February 2016 at Olympia, in London.
All previous copies of the survey are kept online as a reference resource.
Bate believes that the survey is a vital reference tool for the entire sector. “We get a lot of really great feedback about the survey,” says Bate. “It’s one way in which Blue Eskimo demonstrates that it’s not ‘just a supplier’ to the learning sector, but an active part of it.”
Blue Eskimo is the only recruitment provider to be accredited by the Learning & Performance Institute.
The survey is open now and can be taken online – it runs from now until 11 December and takes less than 5 minutes to complete. The results of the survey will be available early in 2016 – and the winner of the Apple Watch Sport should receive the watch in time for Christmas.
