Carpentry courses could be offered to retain employees

New research suggests training, such as carpentry courses, could help to keep employees happy in the workplace if no promotions or pay rises are possible.

The study conducted by Perspective - an organisation focused on learning management - found that nearly half of the 3,000 respondents to a poll would be happy to learn new skills in a job, if no money for career development was available.

Carpentry courses could be just the thing to raise morale in a firm and managing director of Perspective Paul Davis suggested that training should be at the forefront of employers' minds.

He added: "I fully appreciate that many training budgets have been cut to relieve the strain of the recession but finding and retaining the right staff for a job is harder than ever before."

The Scotsman recently reported that two carpentry students are set to take part in the Scottish heats of SkillBuild, the largest multi-trade competition for trainees and apprentices in the UK.
