The UK is in recession, however business and local Government has to be as efficient as possible at a time like this.
Recessions and downturns in the economy do not last forever and apart from building up a company, University or Government (local or national) department for the future they must also continue their training and development of staff for the present.
Staff have to be motivated and careers paths must be followed. When economies have to be made organisations look at their major expendiure. Some of these expenses like rent and rates can't be cut, however if your business is about to have a rent review, it is probably worthwhile negotiating the rental. There will probably not be a queue of people waiting to take over your premises.
You might decide to freeze salaries, however you still have to attract customers and although you might reduce your advertising budget, you must still continue to advertise as otherwise you won't maintain your customer base.
If you cut back on your management training you will not provide your customers with good service and in the long run will loose business.
You need to keep investing in training, planning for the future and ensuring your staff produce the results at the present time.
"There has never been a better time to invest in your organisation's future than investing in Training Now".
