In May, Research Centre Portal reported that, according to its survey, the crisis has led to increased interest of citizens in retraining.

The specialists long noted that, unlike Europeans and Americans, our fellow citizens are generally not willing to pay for their own learning, thinking that is taking care of business or government. Modern Russians have for the most part are not accustomed to full independence. On the contrary, they are accustomed to rely not on ourselves but on the state, which take care of them “- says the center’s director,” ProfGid Elmira Davydov.

In the pre-crisis times, this sociocultural Russians usually feature the support of the business. “Before the November 2008 private initiative (” I want to go to study – to improve their skills “) is mainly supported by companies”, – said Director of Development and Foreign Relations of the St. Petersburg International Management Institute (IMISP) Dmitry Pavlov. Currently, employers have become extremely selective: if a decision on the need to pay for any training and adopted, it was only because of their extreme importance. “The request for funding from external training provider staff must now justify the rather high level, proving its necessity,” – said Elizabeth Fetisov, Senior Manager of Public Relations operator Beeline. In addition, the redistribution of educational programs, more emphasis was put not on foreign coaches, but on internal resources. “At present our company for sales professionals will start the next stage of the School Managers who hold our leaders and staff with great experience, – says Galina Bandurkin, the owner of “Astarte Prestige, a leading manufacturer of partitioning systems. – We understand that for most people it is now important to reduce their costs, and so we try to practice the only free form of training for staff.

Many executives believe that while the business in a “simple”, it is better to spend a previously earned money to improve their own skills: after a period of economic growth for this never enough time. “The need for education is not subject to crises, another question that forms its receipt undergo correction. In any case, employers should not refuse this expenditure, with correct approach does not require a lot of money “- sums up Galina Bandurkin. Ultimately, it is important knowledge, and not a form of submission.
