A survey has been conducted by video-based learning content provider Video Arts to discover the most popular New Year’s resolutions of Learning & Development Practitioners for 2013.
The two most popular choices are to develop their own personal skills and to offer more e-learning. The study asked 120 L&D Practitioners about the resolutions they had made for 2013 and nearly 50 per cent would like to offer more e-learning courses, whilst 45 per cent would like to use more technology for training and 40 per cent would like to train more people.
Mark Addison, CEO of Video Arts, said: “2013 promises to be a busy year for L&D, as the common theme from our survey is that practitioners are keen to do more. The findings also give a sense of the difficulty of the L&D role. Some practitioners clearly feel under pressure to perform, as managing their own stress, motivating themselves and even finding another job all feature strongly as resolutions. The fact that three out of five trainers want to enhance their own skills could either reflect an admirable passion for continuous improvement or it may mean that, with the pace of change in L&D, some trainers feel underdeveloped or even ill- equipped in their current role.”
