In recent years, the L&D survey has effectively highlighted both international trends and regional nuances in workplace learning. While the survey results indicate a clear inclination towards personalized, adaptive, and sustainable learning structures, there are notable differences in approaches that can be attributed to regional peculiarities.
Last year, reskilling/upskilling was the top option on the survey, with 13% of the vote, and received uniform support from all regions worldwide. However, this year, the trend is declining, with a drop of 0.5%, and it would have been even greater if not for the support from Southeast Asia. While reskilling/upskilling is still considered important, it no longer dominates the survey as it once did.
Geography plays a significant role in the survey results, with opinions varying widely across the globe and between regions. South America consistently ranks collaborative/social learning as the top option, while North America consistently places it at the bottom of the list. In contrast, North America ranks artificial intelligence as the top option, while South America ranks it at #9. These consistent differences between continents highlight the stark contrast in opinions.
