The purpose of this article is not to question the need to provide more employee education and training or to encourage employers to invest more in employee development. Rather, it is to show that the decisions of employees themselves have as much to do with employee education and training as do those of employers. Consequently, the promotion of training requires addressing all workplace partners, not just employers, but also employees themselves, as well as governments, unions and educational institutions.
