SG, APAC leaders are spending more time learning
The time spent upskilling during the first quarter of the year increased 47% year-on-year.
Leaders in Singapore and other Asia Pacific countries spent 47% more time to upskill during the first quarter of the year, compared to the same period in the 2020.
“This suggests that although there was no exponential growth following the uptick reported in Q2 of 2020, there is still a sustained increase in learning amongst professionals a year after the pandemic’s true impact was felt,” Tigerhall said in its report.
The 47% increase followed Tigerhall’s finding that there was a 39% increase in the time spent learning on Tigerhall per user between the first and second quarter of 2020.
Moreover, the report found that managers spend 75% more time learning than the average user, whilst CXOs spend 25% less time learning than the average user.
Meanwhile, the amount of time directors and heads of department spend learning also matches on average.
The report also found that the most common time when users are most active are just before work, right after work and during lunchbreaks.
“It is interesting to note that these periods are also popularly spent on activities such as having meals, doing chores and commuting to work,” Tigerhall said.
“These findings highlight the importance of providing professionals with access to on-demand microlearning content that can give them the power to develop at their own time and convenience.”
