Recession investments – training’s the thing

The results of a recent survey published by the UK’s Institute of Directors (IoD) reported that IoD members’ organisations see training as an investment rather than a cost to business. Their commitment to training has held firm during the downturn in the economy with 80% saying their organisations had either maintained (51%) or increased (29%) investment in training over the past six months. Further, 88% of directors reported their organisations were planning to maintain or increase training investment in the next six months.

Rather than viewing training as a drain on business, these figures suggest that with investment in building the capacity of their people, organisations are looking to reap rewards when the upturn comes.
