Workers with university training hold 84% of management posts. They earn 72,000 euros a year on average, 18 percent more than those in the same job without training.
Work today is becoming a luxury, an object of desire which increasingly reflects the salary gap between more highly trained and less trained employees. According to Ernest Poveda, general manager of the ICSA Group “indicators point to the fact that the remuneration of people with more training tends to resist better in times of crisis and this trend is likely increase in the future”. This conclusion is taken from the latest report brought out by ICSA, La Salle Business Engineering School, Laboris.net and Fundipe under the heading: The Impact of training on remuneration 2010, which studies the relationship between income and training.
The report, which studied over 80,000 wage earners from very diverse economic sectors, points out that salary differences between Spaniards with and without university training over the last twelve months have risen from 50 to 58 percent and that postgraduate training is increasingly becoming a decisive factor. Holding a graduate degree is no longer enough. Postgraduate specialisation increases salary differences over time.
Within the same professional category, university graduates are the ones who earn the most and those who hold the best paid jobs. This goes to show that when it comes to hiring and appointing people for management positions, bosses attach a lot of importance to the training of prospective candidates for the job. Anna María González, general manager of Laboris.net states from her portal that "we have detected a rising interest in receiving training among candidates. The higher their level of training the less time they take to find a job”
