ABSTRACT
Companies in Great Britain will increase the amount they spend on training by an average of 8 per cent this year, according to a survey from blended learning firm Balance Learning. The companies with the biggest budget increases — more than 20 per cent — are in the financial and retail sectors. Generally, businesses are planning to spend more on e-learning and blended courses. More organisations are allocating proportionally more budget to e-learning and blended learning, which are seen as more cost-effective.
