ONE in four workers has left a job, or would consider resigning, because of poor training and career prospects, new research suggests.

A study of more than 1,200 adults by awards body City and Guilds reveals that a huge number of workers are looking to move to an employer who would invest in their career.

Employers in vocational industries such as construction, hairdressing and retailing are least likely to offer their staff training, according to the report.

The study also found that smaller firms are less likely to plan their employees' training than larger companies.

Judith Norrington, of City and Guilds, said: "Training and career development is one way that an organisation can instil loyalty into its staff and ensure that they are not losing valuable staff, as this can have a detrimental impact on its brand and productivity.

"Whilst employers seem to be putting more money into management training, this is not sufficient on its own and needs to cascade down to all levels of the organisation.
