FT | IE Corporate Learning Alliance launches Corporate Learning Pulse to Uncover European Business Attitudes Toward Investment in People

MBA Blog / 26th May 2016

Companies believe that investing in the development of their executives is more important than hiring new talent when it comes to driving change, stimulating innovation and improving corporate financial prospects, a survey of 600 business leaders from across Europe has found.

But, despite this, just under half those leaders surveyed find it a challenge to see how their investment in corporate learning adds value to their businesses in ways that are measurable against the bottom line.

The findings are unveiled in an independent survey, Corporate Learning Pulse, commissioned by Financial Times | IE Business School Corporate Learning Alliance (www.ftiecla.com).

Respondents in the inaugural survey, which is to be an annual event, were drawn from France, Germany, the Netherlands, the Nordic countries, Spain and the United Kingdom. They included C-suite executives, HR and learning and development leaders, and senior managers in small, medium and large organisations who had led or participated in executive development programmes in the past five years.

The following video highlights the key points from the Corporate Learning Pulse survey:
