“With the job market in flux, this shows a huge appetite for learning new skills to stand out from the crowd, whether that's taking on a new skill or returning to basics to give more confidence when attempting to ask for a promotion or nail a job interview,” Gregory said.
“Businesses can also use LinkedIn Learning to ensure their teams are motivated, participating in personal development and ultimately help to future-proof their organisation.”
