Eighty-five percent of respondents to a recent Deloitte survey cite learning as “important” or “very important,” up 21 percent from last year. Yet the capability gap between the importance of the issue and the ability to respond grew in magnitude by an enormous 211 percent over the last 12 months (from -9 to -28).
More than 3,300 business and HR leaders from 106 countries took part in the survey.
“The comparison of findings with previous years does suggest that employee learning has become more of a concern to HR leaders [who] are less able to respond to that need,” reports Stephen J. Gill. The investigators attribute the change from previous years to:
>> Increasing need for high performing employees, especially leaders
>> Corporate training and development programs are not meeting this need
>> Organizational cultures don’t support employee engagement and learning
