Nearly three-quarters of peoplethink it is very or somewhat important for employers to help them build the skills needed to find another job or transition to another role. Experts believe job development and retraining can yield significant returns

Seventy percent of employees (70 percent) say they are likely to participate in an employer-provided job retraining program, according to a new survey report by Clutch, the leading B2B ratings and reviews firm.

Clutch surveyed 510 full-time employees in the U.S. to learn about their experiences with and attitudes about job development and retraining.
