If the thought of promotion is not in your thoughts within your current job, then maybe it’s not the vocation for you. However, if you are indeed working hard to achieve that increase in wage or that in-house job role you’ve been longing for, our online tutorials may be of interest to you.
The online social learning platform owned by The Open University, has recently published new research revealing that employees’ chances of promotion and securing a new role are enhanced by taking an online course or tutorial – the survey involved the opinions of around 600 employers.
Nearly three quarters (73%) of employers said they thought online techniques were either very valuable (33%) or valuable (40%) when considering the promotion of an existing employee.
Professional development through online learning also carried favour among employers when hiring. Online learning was a ‘differentiating factor’ when assessing candidates with similar qualifications or experience for a new role.
The survey also suggested that employers were willing to invest in online training. 80% said they were would provide funding for online assistance that staff take at their own initiative.
The fact that online learning is part of conversations around hiring and promotions, and that employers are reporting an increase in its usage, is all really encouraging. We live in a digital age and it follows that employers should attribute such weight to professional development through digital sources.
