Staff should be constantly working to improve their skills and update their CVs if they want to please their employers, it has been claimed.
The Chartered Management Institute said that employers, including those who are looking to promote or recruit new staff, want to see evidence that people have maintained and improved their skills and qualifications.
Chief executive Ruth Spellman said: “It’s very clear that employers like their employees to have skills to actually be updating their skills on a regular basis. When you write on a 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 added that attending a course and receiving a certificate or qualification demonstrated that skills were being developed, which could prove experience and capability for a role in a serviced office.
The Chartered Management Institute’s Economic Outlook Survey showed that 45 per cent of managers believe the number of workers feeling involved and valued in their business has decreased over the past six months.
