19% said that the opportunity to learn and grow at work was the No1 thing that inspired them, made them happy and made them want to work harder.

20% said that the inability to learn and grow was the No1 most important thing that would make them look for another job.

“The heavy learners are more engaged, productive and successful than their peers”. Therefore, learning needs to be a high priority if you want a happy and successful workforce.

A survey by MIT SMR and Deloitte found that digitally maturing companies are evolving how they learn and lead in order to adapt and succeed in a rapidly changing market.

Continuous learning is critical, as shown by the 4,300 managers, executives and analysts that were surveyed. 90% of respondents indicated that they need to update their skills at least yearly, with nearly half of them reporting the need to update skills continuously on an ongoing basis. Yet, only 34% of respondents say they are satisfied with the degree to which their organization supports ongoing skill development.
