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.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
