Personnel Training--Ideas and Proposals.
Swedish International Development Authority (SIDA).
This document contains an analysis of the present and future need for employee training in Sweden. The following goals are assumed: (1) employee training should be designed to achieve the goals of the individual, the community, and working life; (2) it should promote security of employment; (3) it should help achieve the goal of giving every adult the right to a good basic education; (4) it should be provided throughout the period of employment; (5) it should help attain economic policy goals; and (6) it should help improve the efficiency of production and services in working life. All employees should have the right to attend refresher courses in their occupational field for at least 2 weeks annually. They should be able to carry over their training entitlement from year to year, and the right to this annual training should be written into central union/employer agreements. Employees who have no secondary and/or upper secondary education in Swedish, English, mathematics, and social sciences should be entitled to attend courses in these subjects during working hours without loss of employment benefits. The state should allocate resources for the courses, the employee should contribute also, and a central foundation should administer these funds and compensate the employer for the costs of the course and the course completer's pay.
