Research we offer
Who can benefit from our research?
Our research is designed to be accessible to all levels of professionals who are responsible for individual, team and organisational performance. Our insights and practical guidance are used to help improve day to day performance issues as well as inform organisation-wide learning strategies.
Where does our data come from?
Towards Maturity research is generated from two sources: our annual Benchmark Study and our Learning Landscape Study. Since 2003, our Benchmark has gathered data from over 5,500 L&D professionals. Over 35,000 people have been through the Learning Landscape Audit, delivering insights on how employees around the world are learning for work.
The ability to change behaviour through habit creation is crucial to becoming a top performing organisation, particularly as learners have the skills to build new capabilities quickly and ‘unbuild’ old behaviours that are no longer relevant. But how do you actually create habits in the workplace?
What does L&D’s relationship with data look like today? With over 150 L&D leaders from a variety of sectors and organisations of all sizes taking part in the Towards Maturity L&D Data Pulse, this report analyses why it is important to use data effectively and outlines pathways to success and real impact.
At a time when L&D are talking about UX and learner centric design more than ever before, their staff have unprecedented access to technology and communities.
This new report, In Focus Driving Performance & Productivity: Why Learning Organisations propel and sustain more impact, supported by the CIPD, investigates how L&D in high performing organisations connect with business leaders, engage learners, and in turn promote a culture of inclusion.
4 lessons from charity sector organisations with high learner engagement that help you improve productivity, staff retention, and organisational culture.
This unparalleled time of change for organisations offers a great opportunity for L&D to shift from delivering courses to delivering strategic value. This report maps out the destination – and the roadmap of how to get there.
The modern learner makes fast decisions about how and where they will learn – but with content still a major barrier for today’s learners, how does the modern L&D leader provide and facilitate good choices?
As we look towards a new year it is important for us to reflect on the current state of the L&D landscape and understand what success in business looks like in a constant world of change and disruption.
