The number of refugees worldwide is increasing dramatically. A recent UNHCR report estimates that at the end of 2016 the world refugee population was over 22.5 million (UNHCR, 2017). While the refugee population can help developed countries reverse their negative demographic trends and bring economic and social benefit to host countries, research suggests that many refugees end up underemployed (Krahn et al., 2000) or dependent on public assistance (Hansen & Lofstrom, 2003), thus failing to fully integrate into the host society (Feeney, 2000).

Raleigh, NC – October 18, 2018 – Corporate training programs can be more effective when training delivery strategies are aligned with the learners’ preferences. A new research report from Training Industry, Inc. explores these learner preferences, focusing on how learners want to learn and the match between their preferences and what organizations are actually using to deliver training.

“Today’s learners have choices,” Amy DuVernet, Ph.D., director of training manager development at Training Industry, Inc. and the researcher and author of the report. “They can find information about how to best perform their jobs from a number of sources. It’s critical that training professionals, and the training function, acknowledge this reality by providing learning and development in ways that learners want to engage.”
