Reflections on 2021 L&D trends survey — from by Ken Blanchard
The drastic decline of face-to-face training in 2020 is still on the minds of L&D professionals in 2021. 


To present a closer view of the impact COVID-19 had on L&D efforts in 2020, we recently published the results of our 2021 HR/L&D Trends Survey. More than 1,000 L&D professionals took part in this year’s survey, which looked at challenges such as the need to convert face-to-face training designs to digital or virtual formats and plans for moving forward in 2021.

An example quote from the report:

In looking at ways to improve their digital and virtual designs, respondents identified learner engagement, social interaction, and more learning touch points as the three top areas for improvement.

That’s not so different than what you would hear from folks working within other learning ecosystems.
