David Hershfield (Former SVP of Online Technology, Redcats)
Russell and David discuss how in hard times many companies cut the budget for employee training. David calls it the ‘siege mentality’. He feels that companies that are very successful are companies that invest in employee training when it is the hardest to do so and when no one else is doing it. According to David employee training is a fixed cost not a variable cost and should be as important to an organization as keeping the lights on.
