Finding and retaining the best talent remains the biggest concern for global businesses, according to research by Speexx.
The leading global provider of online corporate language training, released initial findings from its 4th annual global survey of HR and L&D professionals.
Nearly a third of respondents (28 per cent) listed “aligning training and development with business needs” as a key objective.
Armin Hopp, Founder and President at Speexx explains: “Technology has transformed how business is conducted and the workplace now demands an international pool of staff with better communication skills to maximise on global opportunities. Organisations with a mature talent management strategy are best placed to foster an ongoing learning and strong cross-border communications.”
Yet, 44 percent of organisations are struggling to make sense of “big data” and not fully utilising its benefits.
The Speexx 4th annual HR and L&D audit was carried out between August and December 2015 with 220 participants from Europe, Asia and North America.
The audit included feedback from HR directors/managers, L&D professionals, content developers, training managers and C-level executives who are charged with the development of staff.
Speexx will be releasing two white papers to capture the key findings to give HR professionals an insight of what is shaping corporate learning in 2016:
White paper (part 1) – Understanding how Big Data helps HR
White paper (part 2) – Communication skills, mobility and blended learning.
The first white paper will be available to collect at the Learning Technologies exhibition and conference (Stand M11) which takes place at London Olympia on 3rd – 4th February 2016. Both whitepapers are available here.
