90 % of the Swedish companies organise internal trainings to educate their staff according to the Swedish Statistical Bureau (2018). Furthermore, they concluded that it is more common in bigger corporations than in smaller corporations.
In general an employee spent 11 hours per year in trainings and in total, those trainings stood for 1,6 % of the total staff costs.
The most common subject of the trainings were to further enhance the technical and practical knowledge related to the specific work related task. 75 % of those that were involved in the training found it very useful.
Difference depending on the line of work
Not only is there a difference between a big corporation versus a smaller one. There is also a huge difference depending on the line of work that is conducted. For example, within the industry of extraction of minerals and electric power supply the amount of hours that are spent on training are higher than for example within the hospitality industry. This is due to the more rigorous health and safety precautions for example.
