UK workforce keen and looking to upskill



Two in three workers have changed jobs due to a lack of learning and development opportunities, according to a survey by totaljobs.com


The research also reveals that as many as nine in ten (90%) workers want their employer to make more training courses available.

Importantly, four in five (81%) employers agree that their staff perform better after training, highlighting the positive impact training has on both businesses and employees, who benefit from refreshing existing skills and learning new ones.

What’s more, nearly 90% of employers state that upskilling an individual team member also improves their wider team’s output.

In fact, training is so important to the workforce, that 41% of people say they have secured a new job as a direct result of training.

David Clift, HR director at totaljobs said of the findings: “We are often told by employers of all shapes and sizes that they need skilled employees to fill difficult roles – and they are struggling to find them. This research shows, that there is a keen workforce looking to upskill and improve, so new skills and talents may well be right under their nose. It’s safe to say that training and development is a key area companies need to focus on, it’s a win-win for all.”
