UK workers want more training

More than seven in 10 European IT workers feel they’ve been asked to perform tasks that they haven’t been properly trained for, according to a survey by e-learning provider SkillSoft.

By Janine Milne

The survey polled IT and managerial staff in the US, UK and rest of Europe working in private-sector firms with 500 or more staff. Managing staff is the task most of the UK and European managers feel least prepared, while US respondents were most at sea about project management.

Two thirds of the UK employees – higher than the other groups – thought that training was most important for senior managers, suggesting that management training is neglected are in the UK.

This survey not only shows the significance of leadership training, but it also proves workers need to be trained at all stages of their careers, comments Kevin Young, managing director of SkillSoft, EMEA.
