What you'll learn
2021 marked a pivotal and unprecedented time as COVID-19 continued to influence the current and future workforce and millions walked away from their jobs. To better understand the learning and development priorities for this year and beyond, Duarte surveyed a worldwide audience (80% of whom identified as working in L&D).

We found that communication stood out as the skill to focus on. It was deemed more important now since COVID-19, and communication was rated as the number one skill for all employees to have. However, employees are struggling with communication proficiency and organizations are facing communication challenges, including online communication.

Our research showed that there is money to spend in L&D, but that most organizations still are not providing substantial opportunities for growth and regular employee learning—even though organizations that develop their people are more likely to survive and thrive during times of flux.
