When you make the decision to further your professional development, you are not only making a commitment to your own career advancement, but to the success of your organisation. And because you’ll be enhancing the skills and knowledge you will use to impact the way you do business, asking your employer to help fund your continuing education is a smart move.
Receiving financial assistance from an employer is more common than you may think, but it can feel rather intimidating. To help, here are some simple steps you can follow to make the request:
Do Your Research
Prior to asking for financial assistance, you need to make sure you can justify your programme of choice and how it will enhance your work performance.
Showcase Tangible Benefits
Get specific—discuss with your employer how your newly gained expertise will directly improve a process, service, strategy or any other aspect of your organisation that needs improving.
Start the Conversation
Don’t wait for your employer to broach the subject and present you with potential professional development opportunities. Once you’ve finished your research, send your employer an email to set up a meeting to discuss the programme you have in mind.
Upon successful completion of the programme, participants will be awarded a verified digital certificate by NUS Business School.Get Certified
