Employers urged to turn to e-learning
Online training could solve the current UK skills shortage, according to new research from an industry expert.

Web collaboration company WebEx has said that human resources (HR) managers are not promoting e-learning because they think it is more complex than it is, reports Onrec.com.

Data from the firm has revealed that more than three-quarters of HR managers think company training is inadequate.

Although four out of five respondents said they believe e-learning could go a long way to remedying the industry skills shortage, more than half said they do not know how to implement it on a technological level.

Bert van der Zwan of WebEx commented that UK companies are missing out on vital training opportunities.

He went on to say that companies have to invest in training in order to develop and compete in the market.

A recent government report by Lord Leitch said that UK business is in danger of falling behind because its "skills are not world class".
