White Paper: Understanding how Big Data Helps HR

You’ll be the first to get your hands on our brand-new white paper, which captures insights and opinions from over 220 HR and L&D experts around the globe. The report is based on the Speexx Exchange 2015-16 Survey. If you’re curious, here’s a sneak peek of what we found:

  • Blended Learning. 63 percent of companies audited said that “blended learning” will continue to be the primary approach for corporate learning as opposed to pure face-to-face training or standalone e-learning.
  • Big Data. Maximising the use of HR data was hit by a barrage of internal issues. Those audited listed five major obstacles: Lack of management support (31 percent), lack of know-how in collecting and using data (24 percent), budget constraints (16 percent), global implementation issues (16 percent) and understanding data privacy issues (13 percent).
  • Mobile Learning. 35 percent of businesses now use mobile devices for corporate learning, while almost one in five companies plan to implement a mobile learning strategy within their organisation within the next three years.
  • Communications. 98 percent of organisations agreed that good communication is “very important” or “important” for overall business success. However, the “lack of management support” (27 percent), “intercultural differences” (23 percent), the “lack of foreign language skills amongst employees” were the top reasons were holding back strong communications.
