Top Leader Development Program Priorities in the Eyes of HR Experts
We asked survey respondents to rank their leader development program priorities for 2021, with 1 being most important and 7 being least important. Sixty-three percent (63%) of respondents say that helping functional leaders grow into high roles is No. 1, 2, or 3 on their priority list. Similarly, helping leaders take on new roles is a big priority, with 61% ranking this issue among their top three priorities.

Along with this, 56% of organizations say that 50% – 100% of their employees will participate in training for non-technical skills this year.
