Why Upskill?

Logic4training carried out an Upskill Survey in 2018.

According to this research, upskilling to different areas lead to enhanced work satisfaction (+39%), a larger customer based and, above all, an increased hourly rate.

An overwhelming 87.5% respondents from our upskill survey have added to their skill set later on in their career.

In fact, 93.69% of industry professionals would recommend it. As to the question “why?”, respondents to our survey answered:

  • “I feel that upskilling is an essential progression in any trade, which individuals, companies and customers all gain from.”
  • “You can offer clients a complete package, especially now hybrid systems are becoming very popular.”
  • “For self-development and a better chance of moving on in your career.”
  • “You can offer complete installation and servicing services to your customers and cut out using sub-contractors to cover your skill shortage.”
  • “This industry is always changing and you need to continue training or be left behind.”
