Dear HR Professionals,
Currently, my company only grants paid training leave to staff if they are sponsored by us to attend a local/overseas course/conference. May I know if your company allow paid training leave if they self fund their course?
Nope, unless the training course approved by the Company.
We do not grant paid leave if the course is not company sponsored. Staff have to apply their own leave for this purpose.
Yes, our Company (service sector) support staff on a self-sponsored course related to their job.
We will give 3 days of study and/or exam leave per the calendar year to the staff with 1 year or more service with us. They just submit their course detail and exam schedule when applying for training leave.
Self-fund training is just like attending an exam of regular studies and for that, we do provide a paid day without deducting it from the annual leave of the employee only if the training is not exceeding 10 working days in a year.
