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 been increasing by more than 50% compared with 2010. During 2009 and 2010 training has been limited to a minimum in many companies due to the crisis. In 2011 training is back on the level from 2008, which was 27 hours per employee. This 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. Impact on trends is not material.
