TrainingZONE Newswire #Issue 312 – Beat the Learning Dip


TrainingZONE Newswire - Issue 312
21 June 2004

1. Feature: Beat the Learning Dip
2. Case Study: Basic and IT Skills Training in the NHS
3. HR Managers Cite Training as Key to Staff Retention
4. Laughter in NLP Training
5. Survey: Training Venues 2004

Editor's note
Just a week after a survey of employees found training to be a main
motivator in work, there is more evidence that the value of
learning and development really is being recognised.

The National Training Awards has seen an increase in the number of
entries this year. UK Skills, the people behind the awards, put
this down to businesses wising up to the importance of training
both to the competitiveness of their company and staff retention.

And yet another survey this week has shown that HR managers believe
training to be the key to staff retention.

So with staff, HR managers and business leaders all extolling the
virtues of training, I hope you feel valued!
