Over 77% of mid-enterprise companies don't keep their employees' technical knowledge up to date, research from Black Box, a networking company, has revealed.

"Investment in training is clearly an issue which needs addressing, not just in mid-enterprise companies but across the board," said Patrick Hudgell, managing director of Black Box. "Although previous surveys have shown training deficiencies in both small and blue chip companies, with 62% and 51% both providing training, the result in the UK's medium enterprise sector is scandalous."
