According to Steve Huxham, chairman of the Recruitment Society, skills consultation is "essential" if the UK is to simplify the skills system.
His comments followed the publication of a report by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development which suggested that efforts to close the UK's productivity gap with its major international competitors are being fatally undermined by a leadership and people management skills deficit.
"What you should do is identify the need at all levels, whether it is supporting management development or vocational learning, and keep that very simple and guide employers in how to do it," Mr Huxham explained.
He added that there has to be a private sector initiative which is led by employers and supported by professional bodies.
