People Management;11/5/2009, Vol. 15 Issue 23, p12
The article discusses the opinion of Jo Taylor, head of learning and talent at Channel 4 in Great Britain, that broadcasters need to train their current workforce in digital technologies more rather than constantly bringing in new talents. She stated that in the current economic setting, many production companies, including Channel 4, were not recruiting. Taylor urged major broadcasters to collaborate with independent production companies to ensure that money spent in training does not go only on people at the onset of their careers.
