Kluwer Learning Indicator 2012

5500 responses this year for the Kluwer Learning Indicator survey. But what do they all say? Let’s ask Johan De Meyer (the man who created and still runs Kluwer Training) and Nathalie Verbinnen

Some sample questions from the survey…

  • It’s HR, not the employees who decide how learning takes places
  • HR invests too often in short-term training solutions
  • HR must encourage knowledge and experience sharing via social media
  • Leadership skills can/cannot be learnt
  • Learning is a motor for innovation
  • Looking at these questions, I see the link with some other learning trends:

  • Self-learning and more self-control of employees may be important. It’s not HR that should drive everything. People need to be “learning proactive” themselves..
  • Training does not imply learning
  • …and learning does not imply training
  • Social learning, knowledge sharing and connected learning networks are still new issues for HR people to deal with
  • Johan De Meyer tells us:

  • 2 out of 3 companies have a real learning strategy, 7 out of 10 employees know it and 2 out of 3 employees are satisfied with it
  • A learning organisation must align learning activities with business priorities.
  • HR professionals are focussing more on “normal collaborators” than leaders
  • 3 out of 4 employees figure out how to lead people on the job
  • …but 43% say they need some training on this
  • Classical training remains the top choice for developing people at work
  • …then we learn from our colleagues, then from our managers
  • ..while Nathalie Verbinnen says:

  • 1 out of 3 employees say they spend time every week on self-development
  • …but 62% of employees take a day’s holiday to follow training!
  • Social Media might be trendy, but it’s not being used much yet for learning
  • …probably because HR professionals are not themselves active with these tools
  • Want to know more?
