In our recent survey on assembly training and education, another question we asked is about the importance of training to your organization.
Around 85% of our respondents consider training really important to their workforce. In fact, the majority of respondents—47%—say it is very important. Such training could be on-the-job training, formal in-house training, training through third parties, and training by their suppliers.
Most training are done in-house, and on the job. In terms of outside or third-party training, they include through conferences and symposiums, as well as IPC certification courses.
