Employers want workers to continually 'update their skills'

Published: Thursday, 26 May 2011   Category: All Graduate job news

People looking for graduate opportunities must ensure they have a large skills-set and that they are ready and willing to learn new things.

It was recently revealed by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) that employers like their employees to update their skills.

Ruth Spellman, chief executive of the Chartered Management Institute, said: "It's very clear that employers like their employees to have skills and to actually be updating their skills on a regular basis."

She maintained that attending a course and receiving a certificate acts as "evidence" that the potential employee is managerial material.

"When you write on your CV that you've had ten years of management experience, what does that mean if there isn't any validation of the skills that you've learnt?" she said.

According to the Chartered Management Institute's Economic Outlook Survey, 45 per cent of managers say the amount of workers feeling involved and valued in their business has decreased over the past six months.
