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 eighth year, the research aims to uncover the business priorities that are shaping digital learning strategies and the approaches L&D professionals are adopting to help organisations successfully support hybrid working and organisational transformation.

Last year’s research revealed that a systemic weakness for L&D teams in developing a learning culture, onboarding, upskilling, business change and transformation. Less than 20% of L&D professionals who responded to the survey said they believe are effective at upskilling and reskilling, onboarding or business change.

Only 45% of L&D professionals said that their C-Suite see learning and development as central to the future success of their organisation.

This year’s survey continues to track L&D’s impact on the business as well as identifying the most successful approaches to learning. Questions explore how learning teams are managing to reskill and upskill employees, which technologies are working and levels of customer satisfaction with learning technologies. The survey also explores:

   - learning strategy

   - creating effective learning experiences

   - learning tech ecosystem and solution maturity

   - learning investment trends

   - skills

The research, with an annual average of over 1,000 respondents worldwide, will remain open for the first quarter of 2023 and results will be shared at Learning Technologies in London in May.

“Recessionary pressures mean that L&D teams face some tough challenges,” said David Wilson, CEO, Fosway Group. “It is imperative that L&D teams add real business value by aligning with organisational goals and priorities, while at the same time staying true to the narrative and processes of a modern people-focused agenda. It’s a real balancing act, and one that this year’s Learning Realities research will explore.”

Learning Technologies Event Director, Mark Penton, commented, ‘Digital learning technologies continue to help L&D teams transform the learning experience and the value and impact of learning. Our joint research with Fosway Group helps identify the factors that enable this transformation, as well the strategies, technologies and investment that underpin success. The findings will help L&D leaders learn from each other as they navigate accelerating change and recessionary pressures.”

All respondents will receive priority access to the research findings.
