Training opportunities beat career progression in young peoples employment wish list
The majority of young people agreed with the question - If salary packages were similar, would you select an employer on the basis of its training scheme ahead of its career prospects?
Andrew Gee, Senior Project Manager at World of Learning, comments: “The next generation of employees has spoken: for young people about to enter the workplace, salary aside, it’s learning and development that tops the wish list.
“Businesses need to ensure they have the expertise in place to create a compelling learning and development offering and be mindful that offering a solid training programme plays a major role in attracting young recruits.”
The World of Learning Conference & Exhibition, taking place on 29th and 30th September at Birmingham’s NEC, is the essential event for learning and development professionals. Combining top industry innovators, leading suppliers and the latest in interactive learning technology, this year’s World of Learning will examine, discuss and shape the future of business learning.
