Fosway Group, Europe’s #1 HR industry analyst in partnership with Learning Technologies, Europe’s leading learning workplace event, has opened the annual Digital Learning Realities research survey. Now in its seventh year, the research aims to highlight the digital learning strategies that are helping organisations successfully support new working environments and organisational transformation.

Last year's Digital Learning Realities Research revealed the challenges of delivering corporate learning in a post-pandemic world. Change was a key factor for most respondents, with 96% making changes to their L&D strategy in response to the pandemic and two in three making significant changes.

The research revealed that this change included increasing the adoption of multi-channel delivery to support learning and increasing support for the application of learning on the job.

However, the research revealed that less than 50% of L&D teams believe they have a learning platform fit for the modern workforce and this despite 92% saying that enhancing the digital learning experience is a priority and critical for the future success of their L&D team.

This year's research examines the following topics:

  • Learning strategy
  • The impact of the hybrid workforce
  • Creating effective learning experiences
  • The learning tech ecosystem and solution maturity
  • Learning investment trends
  • Skills development
  • Buyers’ experiences and customer satisfaction in the digital learning market

The research, with an annual average of over 1,000 respondents worldwide, will remain open until Learning Technologies where initial results will be revealed.

“Digital learning was massively accelerated by the pandemic and as a result we see a buoyant digital learning market,” said David Wilson, CEO, Fosway Group. However, as the dust settles on moving to – and accelerating – digital learning, organisations must turn their attention to big challenges, including supporting hybrid working and the skills agenda, that will need an effective digital strategy. This year’s Digital Learning Realities research will shine a light on the digital strategies that are working for corporate learning teams.”

Learning Technologies Event Director, Mark Penton, commented ‘Our joint research with Fosway Group enables us to help the Learning Technologies community of corporate L&D leaders to navigate the huge amount of change they are experiencing in their organisations. There are huge opportunities to accelerate the impact of digital learning and this research will help L&D leaders learn from each other and gain insights into what makes an effective digital learning strategy in 2022.”

All respondents will receive priority access to the research findings.
