At the same time, with rapidly changing environment, the process of searching for competent specialists is becoming increasingly difficult. In tough competitive conditions, measures should be taken in order to retain, accumulate, and transfer specific knowledge to new employees - knowledge which is viewed as the foundation of a business’s survival and development strategy. In order to do this, companies develop special programs which stimulate acquisition of new skills and competencies, creating a specific training culture and encouraging knowledge exchange, which, in turn, results in the best business outcomes.
