2024 Generative AI Report: L&D's Breakthrough Moment


This research from Executive Networks and University of Phoenix in late 2023 explored how HR and talent leaders are using GenAI at work, along with their perceptions about the future of the learning and development (L&D) function in this age of GenAI. Knowledge workers were also surveyed in order to better understand their experiences and perspectives around GenAI and the impact these new tools are having on their job and their organization. The report presents key findings that: HR and Talent leaders are optimistic about GenAI and moving fast to use it across the HR function – especially in learning; only a third of knowledge workers are confident about using GenAI. Women trail men in use and confidence; and while HR leaders and knowledge workers see many ways GenAI can enhance their work, real barriers could slow progress. The study uncovered learning gaps that need to be closed and barriers that could slow adoption if not addressed. To help close those gaps, the study includes recommendations of five important actions talent leaders should take now to maximize the positive impact of GenAI for their organizations.
