With the sudden shift to working remotely earlier this year due to COVID-19, professionals across the globe have had to adapt to a very different work life. Now, as organizations continue to adjust to more technology-driven work environments, it’s a perfect time to take a closer look at what professionals have to say about the remote work experience and what they would like to see in the future of learning and development.
The Kahoot! 2020 Learning at Work Report, based on our survey of 400+ professionals working remotely in the U.S., investigates how the remote workforce views learning and development at their organization in 2020 and what they want to see when they’re able to return to the office. The results of the survey offer key insights into how workplace learning has changed this year, as well as how organizations can begin to rethink their learning and development strategies, as they prepare for 2021.
