How does the modern employee feel about learning in the workplace? The team at Degreed seems to have a good idea, and a Slideshare presentation they posted recently sums it up well. A Degreed survey found 90% of employees would prefer their learning to be self-directed, rather than at HRâs discretion. And according to Bill Jensen and Josh Klein, up to two-thirds of employees report that they meet their learning needs by working around L&Dâs offerings. The Change in Control from the company to the participant has broken the monopoly on learning, and itâs up to L&D to adapt to the new environment.
