The Index for Learning@Work is a diagnostic tool developed by the Institute for Adult Learning (IAL) to help enterprises and organisations get a snapshot of the current state of learning in their workplace.
Think of it as a health-check that any enterprise senior or middle management personnel can request for their business unit, division, or even the entire organisation. This health-check will allow organisations to collect data on how their staff experience learning at the workplace, understand what is working well, and identify areas which require further examination.
This diagnostic tool is made up of two components:
- Quantitative online survey (estimated completion time: 10 minutes)
- Qualitative interviews with a sample of employees.
The quantitative online survey consists of around 65 behavioural and perception questions, covering learning conditions that are critical for effective learning and performance at work. Respondents are required to rate each item on a 5-point Likert scale (a scale used to establish people's attitudes to a topic).
