Empowering Proud Work: L&D that Matters

Learning & development cannot be “just” a tick-box exercise

Today’s workforce seeks opportunities for continuous learning and growth. Organisations that take a more explicit approach to learning and development that also includes intersectional training will be better positioned to deliver what talent want and stay ahead of the curve in a competitive market.  


In an APA survey from 2023, 91% respondents said it was somewhat or very important to have a job where they have opportunities to learn.

In another Pew Research study from 2021, 63% respondents cited no advancement opportunities as a reason for quitting.

A 2018 Gartner study also found that a lack of career opportunities was the main reason for employees leaving an organisation.  

LGBT Great insight: LGBT Great’s proprietary data builds upon the findings from the studies cited above and reiterates the importance of career advancement and upskilling opportunities for talent.

Nearly 1 in 2 respondents in our 2023 talent survey ranked attractive opportunities for career progression within the top 3 factors that would encourage them to take a new role. [1]
