Produced collaboratively by learning provider REDTRAY and benchmarking organisation Towards Maturity, the new study collates the thoughts, opinions and intentions of over 180 Learning and Development professionals across the UK.
While delivering a better, more flexible environment for employees is the biggest challenge that learning and development experts want to address with online resources today, the new data suggests that training professionals are re-evaluating the capabilities offered by the technology they procure. They increasingly expect the Internet to work harder for them in more demanding business areas.
Addressing skills shortages is just one of the fast growing areas of need that L&D professionals now believe their online resources should be able to tackle. The potential of live online resources to speed up the induction process for new starters is the other fast developing driver according to the study’s respondents.

As the research shows the top challenge for organisations today, which they are addressing with live online learning, is accommodating a flexible work environment. But skills shortages now are on top of the challenges organisations want to tackle with live online learning environments in the future.
