It is important to provide guidance to a successful career path within the company. When employees see an opportunity to develop their professional and technical skills and have a career path that provides an opportunity to grow personally and professionally, this significantly aids recruiting and retention.

I believe that investing in a bespoke training curriculum gives a company a distinct competitive advantage. Whether teaching technical know-how unique to an industry or instilling a brand culture of quality assurance, the result is a versatile and effective team capable of significant and lasting accomplishment.

It somewhat depends on your IT environment, but my answer is yes.  Part of learning any environment is learning the specifics of that particular environment, and what differs in it, vs. other situations.  There is also the question of learning the corporate culture, as it is manifested in the IT environment.
