employees being trained, a survey by the CIPD reveals.
and Development 2002 surveyed 502 training managers and directors drawn from
the CIPD membership nationwide.
the payments made to training providers vary between companies and regions,
directors and senior management training costs an average of £928, the survey
claims. This is over £500 a day more than manual workers and £300 more than
technicians, supervisors and clerical/administrative staff. The only group where
