Charities spend less on training workers

Charities spend on average 30 per cent less on training for their
staff than other sectors, according to a survey published this

Agenda Consultancy, which specialises in management issues in the
not-for-profit sector, finds that voluntary organisations spend
£256 per employee compared with £366 in the public and
private sectors.

It also finds that the annual staff turnover is 22 per cent in the
voluntary sector, compared with 15 per cent in the public and
private sectors.

However, the report, based on an analysis of 117 charities, reveals
a lower rate of absence among voluntary sector staff.

Co-author Roger Parry said: “Voluntary organisations can use this
information to pinpoint strengths and areas for development.”
