The Learning and Development Global Sentiment Survey, co-sponsored by getAbstract (and therefore unrated), offers actionable insights into the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on L&D. The annual survey, now in its eighth year, asks L&D professionals to indicate their predictions of the hottest topics for the coming year. The results for 2021 reflect a field under pressure to deliver crucial skills – and poised to elevate its role as a strategic business partner. Donald H. Taylor, chair of the Learning and Performance Institute and author of Learning Technologies in the Workplace, brings four decades of experience in all phases of L&D to his analysis of the survey results.
