Research: What does
the global workforce
have in common?
There has been an incredible amount of
change in the dynamic world of learning
technologies, with major shifts in society like
globalisation, automation and digitisation.
The pace and level of change is transforming
the way we work, and so individuals,
organisations and economies are evolving
too. While there are trends, movements and
natural phenomena that are common to us
all, the way we deal with change is different for
every person, business and society.
Learning Insights 2019
Our biggest research initiative to date, the
Kineo annual report: Learning Insights 2019,
captures this reality. Analysis of data from the
8,000 people surveyed across 13 different
markets, has resulted in a clear
understanding of what drives learning for
individuals, organisations and economies
With a vast ever-growing global footprint, it is
prescient to deliver independent insight to
anyone preoccupied with the same questions
that drive us, so together we can find the
magic that will create an effective culture of
Having analysed the views of respondents,
learners and business leaders worldwide, we
know that there are no two people who like to
learn in exactly the same way. Just as there
are no two people striving for exactly the
same goals, at the exact same time.
Although the data reveals the differences
between us, some common themes have
emerged regardless of your sector, your
country or how long you've been working.
Over the past year or so, we've noticed
something akin to 'consolidation' when it
comes to learning in the workplace.
This is particularly the case with digital
learning and tech-enabled training
programmes. With so many great platforms,
tools and content delivering subject-matterexpertise in any number of skills, there is no
lack of material.
