Benoit Felix, CEO of the Cegos Group, gives his views on this international survey

"As an international leader in Learning & Development, we train and support individuals and organisations on a daily basis to meet their development challenges. There are many transformations at work and all of them involve major issues related to skills development: climate transition, diversity and inclusion, the future and meaning of work, technological impacts on professions, new management models, etc. Behind all these challenges, the central issue is the employability of individuals and the performance of organisations.

Fortunately, companies are now tackling these issues head-on, sometimes under pressure but often voluntarily. We see this in the support we give them in designing and deploying ambitious programmes for upskilling, professionalisation, and reskilling. As for the employees themselves,
they are showing an unprecedented interest in lifelong learning. All of this has led to a strong upturn in the training market throughout the world over the past year or so.

Among other consequences, the health crisis has had the virtue of proving to us, if proof were needed, that training is a strategic investment for today and for tomorrow."
