New CAF study targets trades training
The Canadian Apprenticeship Forum (CAF) is investigating skilled trades employers' return on training investment through a new study.
“We want to have a better understanding of the costs and benefits for employers who participate in formal essential skills training for their employees,” explained Emily Arrowsmith, CAF researcher and essential skills survey project manager.
Many small and medium-sized businesses lack opportunities to reflect on their training programs because they do not have human resources staff.
The CAF says survey participants can obtain a free profile of the costs and benefits of training for their individual business allowing them to understand their company’s return on training investment.
