Jobs In Egypt / HRM / Employer Afraid To Invest In Training Staff


Lot of working people think that their employer would not rather invest in staff training, because they are afraid that after the training the staff will go to another employer.

This is shown by - Robidus - research among more than a thousand working people. At the same time, almost 84 percent think that the employer is responsible for further training.

Fear of outflow of employees to other organizations

"It is remarkable that such a high percentage thinks that the employer is not prepared to invest in staff, while training is of great importance, even for the employer himself", says Mick Netiv, director of Robidus. " The training of staff enables the employee to fulfill his own job longer and better. And with the increase in state retirement age, it is important to provide staff with the right knowledge and skills to continue working longer. For the organizations themselves, it is therefore important that staff are motivated to continue to develop themselves.

Higher educated people receive more training

The respondents also see, however, that the successful updating of staff depends not only on the employer. They believe that employees themselves must also take the initiative to improve their knowledge. If they are not prepared to do so, more than a third (35.6 percent) of the respondents indicate that the employer may even take financial measures. "You can think of not paying bonuses or stopping salary increases." The survey also shows that 52 percent of respondents think that low-skilled people are less motivated to develop themselves than highly educated people. It is striking that not only the highly educated people indicate this, but also the less educated themselves. Nearly 44 percent of the low-skilled indicates that this is the case.

Wrong expenses

According to the CBS, a company spends on average a thousand euros per employee on a training course. It is not always obvious that this investment ends up in the right place. More than 45 percent of the Dutch think that the money for extra training is spent on employees who do not need it. "It is important that the employer makes smart choices. Of course training costs money, but if it is good, training leads to better quality, higher productivity and a higher motivation ", says Netiv.
