How can L&D professionals optimally strategize effective learning initiatives?

Stay ahead of the game - know what L&D trends to follow in 2022, and which are over and done with. 

This report created by L&D expert, Chairman of the Learning and Performance Institute Donald H. Taylor, takes a deep dive into the results of this year’s Global Sentiment Survey and answers the question: “What will be hot in workplace learning in 2022?”

This year’s L&D Global Sentiment Survey, the ninth, shows L&D at a turning point, as the result of two forces. One is the demands of organizations, as they emerge from the pandemic, for more training delivery, very often with unchanged or reduced resources for L&D. The other is the need to deal with the emergency measures put in place in 2020 to mitigate the immediate impact of COVID-19.Taylor's report identifies the top digital learning trends of 2022 and what they mean for the future of workplace learning. He explains how these trends differ from region to region, which “hot topics” from the 2021 are cooling down, and how the pandemic has impacted the trends we see within the L&D industry. 

More about the Global Sentiment Survey: 
The L&D Global Sentiment Survey takes the pulse of the L&D community world-wide, annually. The one-minute online poll asks L&D professionals internationally what they think will be hot in the following year.

The question is always the same format: “What will be hot in workplace L&D in [this year]?” Participants are asked to choose what they think will be hot, not what should be hot. Each person votes for 3 of 15 options, presented in random order. There is, in addition, an ‘Other’ option. Aggregated, and examined over time, these answers provide a fascinating look at trends in what people in L&D are thinking. The survey is published each year in February.

The annual L&D Global Sentiment Survey, now in its ninth year, attracts responses from thousands of respondents in over 80 countries.
