Staff 'eager to have more training'
Staff would like to use February 29th - an extra day this leap year - for training, according to a poll by the Learning and Skills Council (LSC).

The research showed that although 42 per cent of staff believed they would not be offered training, over 50 per cent of supervisors answered that they would be willing to offer it.

Exploring the demand for extra training was part of the LSC Train to Gain project, headed by director Glenn Robinson, which can offer support to those considering skills improvement schemes.

Major barriers to training were shown to be time and financial constraints, which Train to Gain seeks to solve.

Mr Robinson advised: "Improving your skills will help you take control of your future and will have as much impact on your career as it will on your general wellbeing."

Keeping employees interested was also highlighted in a survey by Conchango, which showed that 34 per cent of workers counted working on innovative projects as a deciding factor when selecting a new job.
