Many Swiss hold training unnecessary

It is the Mantra of the staff consultant is: life-long Learning. But a recent study shows that many Swiss do not see any sense in it. Ironically, those employees who are on a low level of education, have no desire to Learn.

Around 30 percent of 1000 from the consulting firm Deloitte surveyed, the Swiss have attended during twelve months of any training courses – no, the last only a few days. According to the Deloitte experts, the Swiss are in the international comparison, below average often. Learning the muffle are, in particular, employees without higher professional education or University degree. 40 percent of this group were not more, and 58 percent of them hold advanced training is simply unnecessary. In the case of the better educated that say 45 percent.

The result is frown lines makes for forehead. "It is worrying that employees with a low level of education participate less frequently in further education," says Deloitte partner, Myriam Thought. You don't realized, apparently, that the work environment change.

companies prefer to support the already well-Trained

Thinking, but also in the companies act. Often companies have many online courses on offer, but there is a lack of a targeted, individual support. It is important that the employees can apply the learning quickly. This does not happen, there will be less Motivation.

to promote, But according to Stefan Wolter, educational researchers at the University of Bern, the heads of only a little interest in it, employees at all levels. "Companies have a greater incentive to make their already well-trained staff to offer courses. In order to increase the loyalty of the employee towards the company." Behind the sober calculus. A well-trained worker quits his job, goes to the company tax. The incorporation of a successor to costs in these cases, according to Wolter in about a year's salary. In the case of less demanding tasks a new employee is ready for swift use. In the logic of the companies, this means: Who is better interchangeable, is less encouraged.

the work of psychologist Felix says that employers choose the training of their employees with deep education often the other way. "It people are set to have such skills already, and only then, when you need it." The Slogan of life-long learning is a harsh reality, wrapped with a pink bow. "In practice, this means, unfortunately, often, that the employees must at all times meet the needs of the company."

For those who think of training a little, the Surprise is big when it comes to upheaval. "In Places with low qualifications, the changes often happen all at once, after many years of standstill. Such employees have been lulled into a false sense of security," says Stefan Wolter. According to Myriam Thinking from Deloitte, it is also up to the employees to show more Initiative and to invest in their education. "It is not enough, only during working hours educate."

However, the expectation of the workers is another. Of the 1000 respondents from different occupational groups, 42 percent said the state should mainly bear the responsibility for the financing of the training. Themselves, only 11 percent see it as their duty. "The Swiss seem to have the tendency of shifting responsibility elsewhere. Many are of the opinion that the state should take care of the training. This is devastating," says Denk.
