The latest Randstad quarterly work monitor survey shows that staff, including those in sales recruitment, expect the training they receive to match their expectations.
According to the data, only 55 per cent feel that their firm is doing enough to help them keep developing, while six in ten workers would switch jobs if a new employer could help them to develop faster or better.
Graham Trevor, HR director of Randstad Staffing, said it is important for organisations to recognise the value that employees attach to learning and development.
"It is also important to ensure that training strategies are aligned with overall business goals by identifying the specific skills needed to deliver commercial objectives both now and in the future and judging what gaps may need to be overcome," he added.
Earlier this week, Jessica Pryce-Jones, chief executive of iOpener, said that managers should attempt to instil a sense of purpose in sales recruitment employees if they wish to engage them.
