A recent survey in HR Review has shown that over half of UK employees would leave a job for lack of training.

Training doesn't have to be formal, expensive or held off-site. Coaching, mentoring, shared learning experiences, and networking are also all forms of learning and development.

At Dutton Gregory, we use our appraisals to write the training plan for the year ahead and have an inclusive approach to training, giving everyone the opportunity to maximise their learning outcomes.

L&D should be a day one discussion as part of the induction, with individual development plans drawn up and kept under review with regular one to one performance and development conversations.
