2020 state of ld mimeo report

Never has the pace of the world changed as rapidly as in the past few months. In February of 2020, we partnered with Challenger to run our annual State of Learning and Development survey. In March, the World Health Organization declared a pandemic of COVID-19.

Watch this complimentary 1-hour webinar to look at the snapshot of what L&D looked like right before the pandemic, plus the results from our follow-up survey on how new business practices have changed corporate training.

Our panelists discussed results from the report, including:

  • How COVID-19 has impacted corporate training
  • Trends in training over the past 5 years
  • What technology the average training team has access to – and what they actually plan on using
