Inadequate Training Hampers Change Efforts


Poor training and development programmes are affecting the success of organisational change initiatives, new research warns.

According to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), organisations experience major restructuring every three years, yet their training processes are not sufficient to cope.

This is reflected in market feeling, as employers are showing little confidence in the competency of training strategies. Two thirds (67%) say the training and development programmes currently in place are insufficient for major company restructuring.

The CIPD also claims that employers fear a worsening economic situation and are reacting by cutting down funding for training.

By slashing budgets, the quality of training is declining which will affect the success of companies’ restructuring programmes, say the CIPD.

A third of organisations (33%) have seen their funding cut. The public sector is worse hit as 42% of government bodies have reduced financial support for training and development.

CIPD Learning and Development Advisor, Jessica Jarvis, said: “Recruitment difficulties remain severe and are unlikely to ease significantly. Against this background, a reduction in training and development opportunities for existing staff may harm productivity and efforts to retain talented staff.”
