This introduction to the second part of the book examines workplace training in Europe in a comparative perspective. Compared to training in general, workplace training is received while in employment, and is usually, but not exclusively, provided by the employer. This is an important area to consider, not only because company training covers a substantial part of education after labour market entry, but because of the perception — rather widespread in the documents by the European Commissions on the Lisbon Strategy — that European employers do not spend enough on increasing the skills and competences of their employees. The discussion starts by looking at the facts, including the differences in average training incidence across European countries, Anglo-Saxon countries and some countries of Eastern Europe, R&D investment and training, product market regulation and training, and temporary workers and training.

Keywords:   European Union, education, workplace training, product market regulation, temporary workers, labour markets
