Fleet careers: Smaller firms best for staff training

Fleet managers working for smaller companies are more likely to benefit from generous training budgets, according to recent findings.

Studies have shown companies employing fewer than 250 people spend far more per head on training (£417 per employee per year) than those with more than 10,000 employees, which average £73 per employee per year.

The amount of money allocated by companies for training has fallen over the past year from £278 per employee to £272.

The findings from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) also show voluntary sector organisations spend more per employee per year on training (£375) compared to the private sector (£273) and the public sector (£250).

Victoria Winkler, learning and development adviser at the CIPD, said: ‘Learning and development professionals need to make sure key decision-makers within the organisation understand the importance of learning and development and the contribution it can make to business.’
