Companies' training practices

In 2018, Luxembourg private-sector companies requesting financial aid from the State for funding their training plan devoted 1.8% of their total payroll to training. On average, their employees attended 4.7 training courses lasting 4.0 hours. On average, a training course costs 217 euros per participant and 55 euros per hour.

The data relating to company training in Luxembourg is taken from Luxembourgish companies seeking public co-funding for continuing vocational training. The requests that these companies complete enable to analyse their actions relating to their training practices.

Employee access to training

On average, employees attend 4.7 training courses lasting 4.0 hours

In the 'Financial and Insurance Activities' sector and in companies with 1,000 or more employees, participation per employee in training courses is greater (8.1 and 6.1 courses respectively, on average).

On average, training courses last longer in smaller companies (7.7 hours in businesses with 10 to 19 employees and 7.1 hours in companies with fewer than 10 employees). Courses are twice as short in companies with 1,000 or more employees.

On average, managers attend 7.1 training courses

Middle and senior managers attend more training courses (7.1 and 5.3 respectively, on average) than skilled and unskilled employees (4.9 and 2.0 training courses respectively, on average).

Men have more access to training than women (4.8 training courses compared with 4.4, on average). Lastly, employees over the age of 45 attend 3.9 training courses, on average.

Companies' training effort

A financial effort representing 1.8% of total payroll

The level of financial participation varies between 1.1% for companies in the 'Administrative and Support Services Activities' and 2.3% for companies in the 'Transport & Warehousing' sector.

The level of financial participation is highest in companies with fewer than 10 employees (3.7%). Except for companies with 1,000 or more employees, the percentage falls as the size of the company increases. Companies with between 250 and 1,000 employees, like those with between 100 and 249 employees, devote 1.6% of their total payroll to staff training. The level of financial participation of very large companies (1,000 or more employees) remains half that of very small companies (fewer than 10 employees).

'Technical/Core business related' training courses account for 37% of companies' training investment

Between them, 'Technical/Core business related', 'Management/HR Management', and 'Finance, Accounting & Law' account for two thirds of companies' investment and 62% of all training hours. 'Management/HR Management' is in second position for both amount invested (18%) and time spent on training (14%).

In terms of participation in training courses, 'Quality, ISO & Security' and 'Finance, Accounting & Law', representing each 20% of all participants, rank after 'Technical/Core business related' courses (37%).

On average, a training course costs 217 euros per participant and 55 euros per hour.

The average cost of training courses is highest in companies with fewer than 20 employees, topping 360 euros per participant, and in the 'Transport & Warehousing' sector (377 euros per participant); this is due to the fact that the average duration of courses is the longest (6.7 hours per participant) and, at the same time, the average cost per hour is the highest (57 euros).

'Languages' and 'Management/HR Management' have a higher average course cost per hour than the other training sectors (70 euros). Companies are more likely to bring in external training bodies in these two areas; their services account for 42% and 37% respectively of companies' investment in training in 'Languages' and 'Management/HR Management'.
