EdCast has announced the launch of the second edition of the EdCast Learning Health Index (LHI) 2021 in India, with the aim of identifying key opportunities to power the L&D community in their endeavor of building smart and healthy learning organizations.
LHI is based on a framework built on eight primary dimensions of learning that contribute to an organization’s learning health. LHI is a survey-based tool that enables organizations to benchmark themselves with their peers to ascertain their overall standing in their industry and market.
A comprehensive analysis of the relative health across the eight dimensions indicate the overall Learning Health of the organization. Relative scores help organizations benchmark themselves against comparators in the industry and move the needle to improve their “learning health."
Benchmarking Learning Health
The aim of the LHI survey is to identify areas of excellence and opportunities for improving learning in an organization. Reviewing and assessing the survey scores would be an opportunity for organizations to take corrective action. The learning health survey is best used as a diagnostic instrument — in other words, as a tool to foster and nurture learning; and not merely serve as a report card.
The framework includes a self-assessment tool built from an HR and L&D practitioner's point of view, covering key aspects that define a healthy learning organization.
This time, the study is being scaled to three regions including India, Africa, and the Middle East. Insights and best practices received from experienced L&D and HR professionals from various organizations of these regions will also be presented in the Learning Health Index Research Report to be published jointly by EdCast and its partners - Mercer, NSE Academy, and People Matters.
Highlights from the EdCast LHI Study 2020
EdCast had launched the first edition of Learning Health Index (LHI) Study 2020 with the objective to create a deeper understanding of learning health in organizations in collaboration with Accenture, National Stock Exchange, and DeakinCo. in May 2020
Around 104 leading organizations in India from a variety of sectors such as BFSI, IT & ITES, Manufacturing & Engineering, Life Sciences & Pharma, Retail & Consumer Goods etc. participated in the Study. The Study featured excerpts from interviews with 22 leading Global CHROs & CLOs who shared their perspectives on the probable trajectory of Learning & Development.
Major findings of the study were-
- The Learning Health Index for corporate India stood at 67.
- Mobile First and ‘Anytime, Anywhere’ Learning has emerged as the top tech trend with 65% of the organizations already implementing it and 17% planning to do so within the next year.
- Over 75% of organizations have yet to fully embrace technology in their skilling initiatives. This presents organizations an opportunity to improve their learning health.
- From all sectors included in the report, IT and ITES reported the highest learning health index (LHI) of 75. The lowest-ranked were Telecommunications and BFSI with a score of 60 and 63 respectively.
The LHI study is an efficient diagnostic instrument for organizations to identify areas of excellence and opportunities for improving learning in the organization and build a smart and healthy learning organization.
The LHI Study 2021 will be released at the LHI Virtual Summit in March 2021. The last date of participation in the study is the end of January 2021.
