Career Development and Upskilling

This first instalment of the 2013 Kelly Global Workforce Index, on the topic of Career Development and Upskilling, explores the changing focus on training and skills development, as employees become more proactive and self-reliant in managing their careers. Once the preserve of the employer, responsibility for training and skills development is shifting to employees, who are dictating the way that training is designed, provided and funded.

There is also some reassurance for employers who often fear that any investment in training will be lost when staff depart. The good news is that the majority of employees who are seeking training are motivated by a desire to stay with their current employer.
