Training is registered in hours and includes hours registered spent by employees on development, training and supplementary training. It is to be considered a minimum, as some of the training activities are not registered – e.g. informal training.
Training hours during 2011 have increased by 25% compared with 2010. During 2009 and 2010 training has been limited to a minimum in many companies due to the crisis. The increase in 2011 is due to new recruitment, a ”vacuum effect” from 2009 and 2010 and a growing focus on the importance of having the right competences.
Please note that comparison year figure for 2010 has been changed since reported for the first time. Impact on trends is not material.
