Six in 10 Indian professionals will increase their time spent on online learning: Survey

Bengaluru: Six in 10 Indian professionals will increase their time spent on online learning, shows professional network LinkedIn’s third Workforce Confidence Index, a fortnightly pulse on the confidence of the Indian workforce.

The survey shows a cautious optimism towards future opportunities, based on the responses from 2,323 participants. Indian professionals are increasing their time spent on online learning as a response to remote working, a shrinking job market, the need for upskilling, and the need to stay mindful through these challenging times. The results show that 60% of Indian professionals want to gain more industry knowledge, 57% want to learn how they can advance in their careers, and 45% want to better their communication capabilities through online learning.

The need to balance job responsibilities with household chores has left the Indian workforce yearning for efficient planning as findings show that 43% of Indian professionals want to learn better time management, stay organised, and prioritise better. Findings further state that it is not always about professional learning as 40% of Indians say they want to learn something interesting and unrelated to their line of work, while 30% wish to improve their emotional well-being.

“A diverse set of skills can take you a long way in this uncertain climate, therefore upskilling has emerged as the need of the hour. Our LinkedIn Learning data also shows that time spent in viewing LinkedIn Learning content by Indian professionals has jumped up by 176% in the past two months, and ‘remote work foundations’ and ‘strategic thinking’ are some of the top courses they are looking at,” said Ruchee Anand, director, LinkedIn talent and learning solutions, India.

“We have also made more than 275 LinkedIn Learning courses free globally to help members develop transferable skills, become resilient, and adapt to the changing business landscape with ease,” Anand said.

LinkedIn Learning data was analysed from March 2020 to April 2020 to understand the increase in time spent by Indian professionals viewing content on LinkedIn Learning during the times of Covid-19.
