2021 Workplace Learning Trends Report

View the 6 trends shaping the future of work today.

The future of work many of us have been talking about is no longer an eventuality — it’s our current reality. Around the world and across industries, organizations are rethinking what work looks like in fundamental ways. And it’s on all of us — from senior executives to individual contributors — to provide meaningful solutions to navigate the days, months, and even years ahead.

What does 2021 have in store? If we learned any lessons this past year, it’s that anything (and I truly mean anything) is possible. But as 20th-century Japanese scholar Okakura Kakuzo said, “The art of life is a constant readjustment to our surroundings.”

That’s what this year’s report is about: change and how to adjust to it.

Each trend highlights how workplace learning took shape around the globe and what it means for your organization in 2021. You’ll also discover why more upskilling and learning agility will be required to keep pace with the “new normal.”
