The latest CIPD/Halogen Employee Outlook survey of over 2,000 employees found that, over the last twelve months, employees are most likely to have received on-the-job training (28%), online learning (26%) and learning from peers (20%), creating a culture of ongoing knowledge-sharing and collaborative working. The three methods of training rated most useful by employees are training from peers (95%), coaching (92%) and on-the-job learning (91%).
However, despite the popularity of coaching, just 9% of employees said they had actually received it over the last 12 months. This trend continues with job rotation, secondment and shadowing, rated as useful by 88%, even though only 5% have taken part in the last year.
Andy Lancaster, CIPD Head of Learning & Development Content, said:
Despite these changing trends in learning and development, the survey also found that over a third (36%) of respondents said they did not receive any of these types of training. Similarly, 30% disagreed that their organisation provides them with opportunities to learn and grow and over a quarter (27%) said they were dissatisfied with the opportunity to develop their skills in their job.
The survey also highlights that the number of employees feeling over-qualified for their roles has increased a third (33%), compared to less than a year ago (autumn 2015: 29%). The number of employees who say they are unlikely to fulfil their career aspirations in their current organisation has also risen (36% compared to 32% in autumn 2015).
The theme for this year’s Learning & Development Show is ‘driving growth through agile learning’ and will focus on new ways of meeting the needs of both individual learners and the wider organisation.
