Research that sheds light on what motivates learners to invest in online learning.

The consumer learner at work

From discussing successful learning frameworks to learners needs and self-directed development, this report explores the topic of consumer learning within the workplace.

By understanding attitudes and behaviors of active consumers of L&D and investing time and money into future development, we are able to understand how to create a better experience for learners in the future.

In this report, we seek to:

  • Understand consumer learners needs for L&D and underpin what is currently available for development
  • Use examples from top-performing organizations in order to highlight what changes can be made to ensure positive evolution
  • Provide a further insight into potential workforce learners, learning habits and behaviors; creating better experiences for consumer learners
