A survey of 1,000 managers working in the transport industry showed that the majority (69%) spend 30 minutes or less using the internet for problem solving.
And 70% said they rejected online learning, preferring face-to-face contact. Only 16% of junior managers and 10% of directors use blogs or networking sites.
The findings, published by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) also showed only 52% have used online management resources in the past year and just 19% have taken part in a structured e-learning property programme.
Jo Causon, director, marketing and corporate affairs at the CMI, said: “There are clear business benefits to adopting e-learning models, but until organisations provide engaging development tools and support alongside these, uptake will continue to be slow.”
