Skillsoft Learning Consultants work with L&D teams to identify the strengths and opportunities for improvement in terms of engagement, alignment, adoption and value

Skillsoft announce the findings of its bi-annual Impact Analysissurvey that measures the value of organizations' learning investments. The Impact Analysis is a low-burden, estimate-based, rapid analysis designed to collect data related to three key areas for learning programs: operational efficiency, content effectiveness and business outcomes. The process delivers both quantitative and qualitative insights into the effectiveness of learning programs and provides a baseline from which to evaluate their impact moving forward. A core service available to existing Skillsoft customers, the Impact Analysis fills a critical evaluation gap for many organizations worldwide.

The comprehensive findings from the meta-analysis reflect 58,800 individual end users from across the world. The latest round of research, conducted over a 24-month period spanning 2012 and 2013, offers fresh perspective on end users' experiences with Skillsoft learning solutions:

Learners cited better work quality and increased employee satisfaction as the leading outcomes of applying what they learned.

Learners achieved an average improvement in skill of 17 percent, which aligned to an average 44 percent of employees' current job roles.

Learners indicated career development and continued professional development as the top motivations for engaging with the learning program.

"It's important for learning programs to be properly monitored and measured to ensure they are aligned with employees' needs, organizations' business goals and their original objectives," said Wendy Duffy, Senior Director, Consulting Services, North America. "Many learning and development teams are already stretched and likely do not have the resources to dedicate to the evaluation of their learning investments. The Impact Analysis gives them a great baseline for thinking about their programs in context of many others like them. It also helps teams package the insights for key stakeholders who are invested in the programs' success."

The Impact Analysis findings allow learning and development (L&D) teams to quickly and easily evaluate their current programs, to communicate outcomes internally to other stakeholders, and to create an action plan for achieving even more value in the future. Following the initial analysis, Skillsoft Learning Consultants work with L&D teams to identify the strengths and opportunities for improvement in terms of engagement, alignment, adoption and value, which Skillsoft has identified as the four building blocks of a healthy learning program.
