Driving Business Benefits – Sector Benchmark launched

by | Mar 27, 2009 | Articles

Individuals with responsibility for implementing learning technologies in their own workplace were invited to participate in the Towards Maturity Benchmark between October and November 2008.

Over 300 organisations took part and 7 sectors had 25 or more organisations providing data, allowing us to dig in deeper and compare sector experiences.

  1. Education
  2. Public services
  3. Health
  4. Finance
  5. IT and Telecoms
  6. Professional and technical
  7. Service activities

This annex to the Driving Business Benefits report, summarises key differences between these different sectors in relation to their experiences of learning technologies in the workplace.

We take a closer look at the following for each of the 7 sectors:

  • Drivers for e-learning investment
  • Benefits
  • Technologies and services
  • Skills offerings
  • Barriers to change
  • Implementation strengths

Who will benefit from this report?

  • All who participated in the Benchmark review – you can compare your results with others in your sector
  • Those new to e-learning who are looking for specific evidence to back your business case for your sector
  • Learning providers (both public and private) looking to improve learning provision and customer care within specific sectors

This annex is part of a suite of research reports. The full research findings are discussed in detail in Driving Business Benefits (feb 09), but this Sector Perspectives report provides a sector view on some of the key findings that we trust will be useful for both employers and learning providers in those sectors.

By popular demand, the 2019 Learning Health Check season has now been extended until Monday 16th September. There is still enough time to complete your review and revisiting regularly can also help learning professionals to measure progress year on year, highlight areas where improvement is needed and provide evidence to build a business case for change.

We all have blind spots, why does being aware of yours add value?

We all have blind spots, why does being aware of yours add value?

When it comes to organisational culture, performance and learning, blind spots (or as they are often referred to ‘not seeing the light’) are usually found at the root of most of our problems with work today. These problems shape our day to day conversations, thinking, mood, judgement, decisions-making, or fundamental lack of them. These issues can make or break your workplace experience.

With 56% of organisations reporting that a lack of learner engagement is hindering the success of compliance within the business, it is clear that something needs to be done to highlight the value of these programmes to learners in order for them to engage with the content and retain the information.
