3 ways to level up your team reporting in 2022

77% of learning professionals don’t know how to assess the impact of learning programs. That’s why, in 2022, DataCamp is making it easier for admins to report on the difference you’re making, using Custom Reports and our new Power BI and Tableau connector
Jan 2022  · 4 min read

A third of organizations polled in the CIPD’s learning and skills at work report saw their training budgets slashed in 2021. Smaller budgets, coupled with more people working from home than ever before, meant that team managers and L&D professionals had to do more with less. This resulted in a drastic shift to digital training. Analysis by the CIPD has shown that organizations that embraced this change are reaping the rewards, with an improved culture and increased demand for learning from their workforce.

But it wasn’t all positive. The report also revealed that 77% of team managers and L&D professionals had no way of assessing the impact of their learning program. The most commonly self-reported method for evaluating training programs was “participant satisfaction surveys”—subjective reporting that’s difficult to link to ROI and your organization’s business goals.

CIPD: Barriers to the evaluation of learning and development program and initiatives (%)

As shown in the image above, there were many barriers to better reporting—competing priorities and a lack of time being top of that list. At DataCamp, we believe it should be simple to report on the business impact of your learning program. That’s why all DataCamp for Business groups now have more ways than ever before to access insights you can share with stakeholders quickly.

How to level up your reporting in 2022:

1. Create professional one-click reports with Custom Reports

We get it. Reporting on the impact of your learning programs takes time. That’s why we created Custom Reports. They’re pre-made reports that DataCamp admins can use to demonstrate your learning ROI and reveal measurable insights, including everything from a weekly status report to your most engaged learners or most popular courses—with new reports added all the time.

  • Analyze your organization’s learning data from the comfort of your browser
  • Share your insights while staying in control of who gets to see them
  • Comment directly on your Workspace reports, just like in Google Docs
