It has never been more important to understand how to provide training and development for your employees.

A Reed survey of 1,500 people in work found that more were looking for a new job after the first coronavirus lockdown than they were before it, despite the precarious economic conditions. Among the key reasons for these employees wanting to move job was the feeling of being undervalued and not being afforded progression opportunities by their present employer.

Employers who provide their employees with development opportunities will help them to progress and feel like a valued member of the team. This in turn will lead to better morale, motivation and ultimately a higher return on investment from your employee.


Having a skilled workforce is vital to the productivity of any business.

Why is upskilling employees so important?
  • Lack of training causes employees to leave: Key reasons for employees to leave include not developing their skills, and feeling undervalued

  • Training not prioritised by businesses: Only 56% of survey respondents were offered training within the last six months

  • Training not building long-term skills: Where training is provided, it's most likely to be on a company policy, rather than building long-term professional skills
