Throughout Europe, enterprises invest in Human Resource Development
(HRD) and training to cope with the challenges of global competition
and to gain momentum in the race for innovation. For their employees,
regular work place training provides continuity in Lifelong Learning
processes, bridges private learning initiatives, increases job
satisfaction and improves employability.

Enterprises' training cultures differ greatly both within and between
countries. While best performing enterprises develop comprehensive
training cultures, most enterprises have only recently began to take
HRD seriously. Differences between countries in average training
activities are also important. Until now, little explanation is
offered for these differences.

By exploring the European Continuing Vocational Training Survey
(CVTS2) and complementary additional surveys and studies, the book
provides new insights useful for practitioners (HRD managers,
training providers), policy experts and researchers.

The book is based on the results of the project CVTS 
(Continuing Vocational Training Survey)
