Abstract

In an update to an article in Industrial and Commercial Training, Vol. 21 No. 2, 1989, the problem of training within small firms is reconsidered. The results of data collected during 1988‐1990 from a survey of small mechanical and electrical engineering firms in the Solent region reflect the firms′ attitudes towards training. The lack or low level of any kind of training is emphasised and it is concluded that persistent neglect of this area reduces firms′ abilities to compete with other larger organisations and could be severely detrimental as 1992 approaches.
