The rhetoric and reality of employee development

It's been a while since I did a posting on a work-related matter. I didn't realise until the other day how much I'd been blogging about blogging!

Anyway, a particular article from Personnel Today caught my eye last week about employers being accused of talking big about investing in people when the reality they were doing something else.

Indeed, as the article in question suggests - Employers spout empty rhetoric about investing in their workers (Ross Bentley) - "Many chief executives are failing to deliver on their promises to invest in people, despite claiming it is the key to improving competitiveness".

A further point of note suggests that improving skills is a top priority for companies, yet almost half of the companies admitted to not spending enough time training their people.
