Royal and SunAlliance (R & SA) claims it has slashed its IT training budget by £2 m, thanks to a blended learning strategy. By centralizing training and introducing blended learning R&SA has cut training costs in IT alone from £4m to £2m. It hopes to bring this down further to £1.5m by next year. All training for R&SA's 1,200 IT staff is administered through a central team, replacing departmental training decisions. The firm is now looking at rolling out its strategy to the rest of its business in a bid to cut costs. It currently spends £13.5m a year on training as a whole.
