In a world in which the nature of work, the workplace and workforce are changing at a relentless pace, organisations must respond to change. In the context of such rapid change Learning and Development (L&D) functions play a vital role. The transformation of organisations demands the transformation of L&D practitioners, however many L&D teams are struggling to change.

The CIPD, with strategic research partners, Towards Maturity, carried out a Skills Pulse Survey to explore the key development needs of L&D teams in relation to the CIPD Profession Map.

This report documents:

  • How planned development for L&D practitioners creates measurable organisational impact
  • Nine areas of the CIPD Profession Map that are key priorities for L&D team improvement
  • Preferred approaches through which L&D practitioners undertake professional development
