Lessons from Other Countries Regarding Incentives for Employer-Sponsored Training (2009)

CPRN Research Report

Research has shown that Canada has been underperforming in workplace learning in comparison with other countries.

The authors of this report review literature on the government policies, programs and initiatives used by certain countries to encourage employer-sponsored workplace training. They focus on Denmark, Sweden, the United States, Finland, Switzerland and the United Kingdom, all of which have a record of above average employer investment in training.

To be included in their review, documents had to come from peer-reviewed journals, established international organizations like the European Union, or independent national research agencies.

The authors note that evidence of the effectiveness of the instruments and their applicability to Canada is thin but Canada could help fill this gap by giving priority to a formal evaluation of such instruments.
