ATLANTA, April 18, 2023 -- Intellum, the leader in EdTech for Business, today announced the results of a study it conducted to measure the economy’s impact on learning professionals, and revealed best practices that deliver positive business outcomes. The survey was conducted in the winter of 2023 (December 2022 - January 2023) and had a sample size of 445 full-time U.S. employees involved in delivering workplace education.
Key findings include:
The data showcases an industry-agnostic occurrence; workplace education professionals are doing their best to drive positive business outcomes, despite volatile economic and employment conditions. To note, research from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics found that there are 10.5 million open roles and 5.7 million unemployed Americans looking for work. Organizations are left with two options: hire under-qualified candidates and train them up, or re-skill existing staff. It’s evident that employee education is critical in addressing the skills gap.
"With the current economic environment, talent and customer retention have never been a more critical success metric. The best way to meet that metric is by ensuring customers, employees, and partners are educated on how to best use your products," said Robyn Hazelton, VP of Growth at Intellum. "Our survey shows what those education initiatives—and the learning professionals responsible for them need to drive results in today’s volatile environment.”
