HR to pass coach responsibilities to the line managers

HR departments on both sides of the Atlantic say they are expecting to step back from the responsibility of putting training into practice.

Line managers and those being trained are to have more input over the next two years and the role of professional coach is expected to become more important.

These are the findings of The Transatlantic Blended Learning Survey 2004, released this week, undertaken by readers of Personnel Today’s sister publication Training Magazine in the UK and by members of the American Society for Training & Development.

The UK is already ahead of the US in its deployment of line managers. Around 72 per cent of respondents in the UK said that line managers played a role in the transfer of learning.
