Trained-up staff

The Sunday Telegraph - - Letters to the editor -

SIR – Paul Caru­ana (Let­ters, Jan­uary 28) men­tions hav­ing ac­quain­tances in busi­ness who com­plain that, af­ter train­ing new staff, those staff de­part and set up their own busi­nesses.

Why, then, do em­ploy­ers do it? Be­cause they still ben­e­fit over­all.

The best way to progress is to take a job that pro­vides good train­ing or ex­pe­ri­ence. If, af­ter two years, you are not pro­moted, look for a more se­nior job else­where – or, if you have the cap­i­tal, set up on your own busi­ness. Brian Gil­bert

Hamp­ton, Mid­dle­sex

SIR – Mr Caru­ana’s friends should re­mem­ber the adage: “Train your peo­ple well so that they can leave. Treat them well so that they would not want to.” Pe­ter Davies

Sprey­ton, Devon
