Do you Seek CPE on Personal or Company Time?

When do you find time to take your required continuing professional education (CPE) - on personal or company time?

If you're not in a large firm or business that offers in-house training, obtaining the proper training can be somewhat difficult in today's rush-rush environment.

However, according to Kelly Services, women who work in finance and accounting are more likely than their male counterparts to seek CPE on their own time versus company time.

Thirty-six percent of males use personal time for training, compared to 40 percent of women, while 47 percent of men use company time compared to 40 percent for women.
