When it comes to job training, employees
are feeling underqualified and
unsupported. That's according to the
'Fake It 'Til You Make It' survey report by
Docebo, the artificial intelligence learning
platform. The company surveyed a total
of 2,400 employed adults in the US and
UK to understand how confident and
qualified they feel in their current roles
and how on-the-job training impacts the
decisions they make at work.
Overall, employees across both countries
don't feel qualified for their jobs. One in
three (32 percent) in the US and UK
admit they've felt unqualified for their job,
and another 33 percent fear that a boss
or colleague thinks the same. Workers
also have little faith in their colleagues'
performance with over half (52 percent)
in both countries saying they have a
colleague who isn't qualified for their job.
These fears impact workers' wellbeing,
with one in four (23 percent) fearing they
may be let go from their job at least once
a month because of a lack of skills.

Two e-learning courses from Engage in
Learning covering unconscious bias have
been accredited by the CIPD. The
accreditation confirms the structure
conforms to CPD guidelines.
Chris Horseman, Engage in Learning's
CEO, said: "It's important to recognise -
and compensate for - the influence of
unconscious bias. That's particularly true
in the world of work for executives, as well
as customer-facing staff.
"Unconscious bias happens by our
brains making quick judgments of people
and situations based purely on our
background, experiences, societal
stereotypes and cultural context. We're
often not even aware of these views, nor
are we aware of their full impact and
"Research has found that unconscious
bias can heavily influence recruitment
and selection decisions," he continued.
"Several experiments using CV
shortlisting exercises have highlighted
bias in terms of gender and ethnicity.
