To help leaders navigate the new world of work, we surveyed 900 L&D pros and 3,000 learners and looked at behavioral insights on how people use LinkedIn Learning We also conducted interviews with best-in-class leaders to gain insight into how the state of L&D is changing within their organizations and how they plan to approach learning strategies in the year ahead.

Report highlights include:

Employees are spending 130% more time on learning since the pandemic

Methodology

For the Leading with Learning Report, we surveyed 3,155 learners in 31 countries and 864 L&D professionals (L&D and HR professionals with L&D responsibilities who have some influence on budget decisions at organizations with over 200 employees) in May 2020 and analyzed data from enterprise learner activity on the LinkedIn Learning platform from the pre-COVID period of January and February compared to the COVID-19 starting point period of March and April. (WHO declared COVID-19 a global pandemic on March 11, 2020. We use March as COVID-19 starting point for simplicity).
