The report attempts to assess the impact of the pandemic on the training and development of employees, apprentices and interns from the perspective of companies and organizations.

A global online survey of companies was carried out to assess the impact of the pandemic from April 27 to June 5, 2020. Based on the study's conclusions, several policy recommendations were proposed to mitigate the immediate effects of the pandemic, ensure rapid recovery from a crisis, and establish systems developing skills capable of adapting to long-term labour market transformations. The survey received 901 responses from 114 countries.
