IT professionals value training above other benefits


An online poll of IT staff conducted by The Training Camp has found that training is by far the most valued benefit.

Of the 100 IT professionals surveyed, 51% said training subsidies were more important to them than employer pension contributions and even bonus payments.

When asked to rate benefits of least worth, 28% singled out gym and health club membership, just behind travel insurance cover at 32%.

"The clear conclusion to be drawn from the results is that most staff are far more motivated by the desire to keep their professional skills up-to-date than their bank account in credit or muscles toned," said Robert Chapman, co-founder of The Training Camp UK. "Bosses worried that key workers will defect, armed with their newly acquired skills, to a key competitor need not be overly concerned. According to our survey, 75% of respondents that have received advanced training stayed loyal to their current employer".
