Top priorities for L&D revealed with learning strategies highlighted

Over 20% of survey respondents said, ‘growth, efficiency, productivity, talent retention and wellbeing’ are priorities for their organisations according to the CIPD’s Learning at Work 2023 Survey.   

The top priority for organisations is growth, the second and third most common priority areas are reducing costs and improving productivity. There is also an increased focus on addressing skills gaps in the workforce.

The biggest challenge for learning practitioners across all sectors and organisation sizes is learner time, engagement and budget. 

One key part of the solution to help address all of the above is skill acquisition, knowledge retention and application. In fact, ‘learning’ is said to be one of the most common strategies that companies plan to adopt to deliver against organisational goals, aiding with talent retention and individual growth.

With this in mind, how does technology factor in this matter? Well, it seems eLearning still features heavily, there is an increased appetite for collaboration, and for more engaging technologies that can be utilised anytime and anywhere, allowing for much greater usage flexibility.

Mobile apps, VR, AR, gaming, and user generated content are all seen as essential for helping to build skills and change behaviours.
