How can CILT(UK) qualifications benefit organisations?

CILT(UK) qualifications provide a benchmark against which both the employer and their employees can be measured. They can also contribute to a positive image of a company committed to the development of its employees. Supporting learning and development often leads to increased morale and loyalty, as staff see that their employer wants them to progress and succeed.
