9 reasons to implement a corporate skills development plan

A survey conducted by Centre Inffo has shown that 90% of French people consider it important to continue training throughout their working lives.

There are several reasons for this: it enables them to seize job opportunities, improve their skills and also avoid getting bored with their day-to-day work.

Yet more than half of those surveyed do not feel well informed on the subject, and only 34% take information from their employer.

Since the health crisis linked to COVID-19, the French have been asking more and more questions about their career paths and expectations.
