External training method favoured by managers

The
use of internal company training is decreasing, according to a study by Roffey
Park.

The
management agenda 2002 states that more than 50 per cent of the 300 line
managers surveyed receive most of their development needs from external
training.

In
contrast it finds only 8 per cent use internal training – a drop from 10 per
cent last year.

On-the-job
development is the second most popular training resource, with 50 per cent of
staff developing through this route, says the report.

Peer
networks are used by more than a third of employees, while a fifth use
specialist groups.  The strongest driver
of development needs is personal career plans, say more than half of those who
were surveyed.

Almost
a quarter of respondents believe the future needs of the organisation drives
development compared to 11 per cent who claim the current needs of the firm is
most important.

The
future needs of the market and the organisation’s competency model are also
highlighted as important development drivers.
