Towards the end of 2021, we surveyed 90 respondents to gain a better understand of our customers training needs, which contributed to this report.

The 3 main take aways of this report:

Seizing the advantage: Along with so many aspects of how we work today, training is becoming more agile. As companies seek to ensure their skills-set matches the needs of both clients and project complexities, they require training that can be accessed without lengthy planning.

Evaluating training trends: The pandemic backdrop redefined aspects of business interaction. ‘Physical’ participation in training became subject to limitations. Yet a year on, as such restrictions are relaxed, the legacy of essential behaviours during this period remains. Physical has gone digital, as virtual training with a third-party provider. However, chosen doesn’t necessarily mean the most effective.

Developing the business: When it comes to continuously developing the business, companies do not limit themselves; while training needs can be classified as essentials, intermediate, and advanced, ‘essentials’ is the only training category catered for in-house; both on the company’s own premises and conducted by its own staff, who may not necessarily be dedicated trainers but have the skills that others look to gain.
