Irwin Anand, MD, Udemy India, said, “With the changing ecosystem in India, the demand for upskilling and reskilling has increased over the past few years. India is a hub for technical talent, and to stay relevant, organizations should provide employees with continuous skill-based learning opportunities. With the ongoing pandemic situation, huge demand has been observed in the IT & Software segment.”
The Udemy Workplace Learning Index is based on data from the learning behavior of thousands of companies across the globe using the Udemy Business platform. All data is based on the country associated with a customer. Skills data compares the consumption of courses in the Udemy Business collection from Q4 2021 to Q1 2022. All courses are associated with topics, with each course having up to five topics. These topics are what you see as the trending skills within the report. For courses with multiple topics, consumption minutes are divided equally across all topics associated with those courses.
