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
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
