This question, from Claire Lew, guest author at Signal vs Noise, caught my attention:
“Is there anyone at the company you wish you could apprentice under for a few weeks?”
Our findings: 92% of employees said, “Yes, there’s someone at the company I wish I could apprentice under for a few weeks” (2,217 employees answered across 190 companies) when asked through Know Your Company. This shows how much employees crave learning and developing their skills — especially from others within the company. Asking this question will expose to you if this is similarly the case within your own company.
92% is a very high response rate. I completely agree that employees want learning and development, but this high of a response rate shows a deep, untapped need within these organizations - and perhaps our own.
