On-the-job learning engagement rates highly in Vyond/TalentLMS survey

Insufficient on-the-job training may be a deal-breaker for many staff when it comes to whether to leave their employer, a vendor survey has highlighted.

According to video tools firm Vyond and learning management system (LMS) provider Epignosis, parent firm of TalentLMS, some 41% of employees responding to their US cross-industry survey said they’ll be looking for another job in 2024 if their organisation fails to provide training.

Van Diamandakis, chief commercial officer at Vyond, noted that workplace learning can be essential for ongoing skills development, both from the business and employee perspectives.

“Getting it right for today’s workforce requires addressing the challenges,” he added in the announcement.

Vyond said that 1000 employees were surveyed on learning and development (L&D) trends for 2024, including questions on training provision and skills. A full report can be downloaded here.

About 80% of respondents agreed that “personalised” learning would be important and 68% indicated they would like non-work-related training that “supports their overall wellbeing”, according to the vendor announcement.

The TalentLMS-Vyond survey suggested that the top three non-mandatory topics for which employees seek training are leadership and management, mental health, and use of AI tools. Sixty-six percent of respondents said they needed new skills to succeed at their current job.

Fifty-seven percent told the vendor that the shelf life of skills is shorter than it used to be.

Thanos Papangelis, co-founder of TalentLMS, said employees increasing require training that “transcends” their work role.

“Personal and professional growth are not separate roads to success,” Papangelis claimed. “Companies should invest in nurturing well-rounded professionals. Acknowledging continuous learning beyond job specifics is essential in the ever-changing business landscape.”

Alongside the desire for more personalised learning opportunities, 79% of respondents said that having more flexibility in choosing topics and the timing of training was important.

Diamandakis said that this underscored the usefulness of workplace learning that is engaging, “delivered at the moment of need and at scale”.

Vyond is a vendor of applications including Vyond Go and Vyond Studio, aimed at helping corporates and other organisations to create video content without specialised media skills in-house.

For instance, creating and serving tutorials incorporating animated illustrations of scenarios that demonstrate how to apply compliance principles, work with technology, or ensure workplace safety.

With AI-enabled Vyond Go, users can use prompts to generate a ‘first draft’ video that can then be edited in Vyond Studio, a standalone suite offering a library of scene and video templates among multiple customisation options tailored to different industries and use cases, according to the vendor’s website.

Epignosis‘ TalentLMS is an e-learning focused training platform, incorporating a variety of tools to make it easier for corporates to create content with a view to managing workplace learning provision.
