Don't let your training budget go to waste!

For all of us, 2020 has been a year in which we have had to adapt a lot, both in our personal lives and in the workplace. Working at the office was suddenly no longer possible because of COVID-19 and working from home became the new norm for many people. Despite rapid adjustments by both employers and employees in order to be able to continue the work, some developments on the work floor will have come to a standstill this year. Think for example of courses, training or education of employees.

Did you know that many organisations reserve a certain training budget for their employees each year? This is laid down in many collective agreements. Now it is perfectly understandable that both you and your employer have not paid much attention to your personal development this year due to all the hectic surrounding COVID-19. This makes it all the more important to think for yourself how you can further develop yourself in the workplace. Have you always wanted to improve your own communication skills? Or could your Excel skills use a boost? Then now is the time to quickly go out for research and find a training or course that matches your learning goals. If you do this now, you don't have to cut next year's budget!

Read below 3 tips to get the most out of your training budget:

1. Consultation with colleagues. Consult with colleagues beforehand about skills that are important for your departments. You may not yet have any idea what you want to develop yourself into, but there are certain points of interest that could help your departments move forward. For example, is there no one in the departments who can deal with Power BI? Maybe this is a good opportunity for you! Click here to view Learnit's course overview and get inspired.

2. Group training. In addition to a training course in which you only focus on your individual skills, group training can also be of great added value for both employer and employees. Think for example of intervision training where departments get to know each other better and where the aim is to improve communication and personal growth of all employees with the help of a competent discussion leader.

3. Further training for 2021. Did you know that your training budget for this year will be lost if you don't make use of it in time? Of course this would be a shame!

Financial management and IFRS

It's just four letters, IFRS, but with a whole new world of regulations behind it. Regulation and accounting have always been extensions of each other; no accounting without rules. You could almost say that it is as old as the hills. Many people don't know that these rules were invented by a 15th century Italian mathematician, who also lived on the road to Rome. He had invented mathematical rules to be able to record financial figures in a systematic way in the first place. For centuries, these rules remained virtually unchanged. Apparently the bookkeeping system was so watertight that there was no need to change them.

Why did IFRS come into being?

But the financial world is changing dramatically in the 21st century. We probably remember all the scandals that have occurred in the banks and insurance companies of name. And actually, one of the main causes for the emergence of these scandals was the classic accounting rules that gave rise to distorted and in some cases, manipulated financial information. These major scandals have accelerated thinking about the sustainability of medieval accounting rules, and major international accounting organizations have come up with proposals for a completely different set of accounting reporting rules. These newly introduced standard rules are issued under the name IFRS, the abbreviation that stands for International Financial Reporting Standard.

Who does IFRS apply to?

IFRS is issued and maintained by International Accounting Standards Board and its rules define very precisely how accountants should maintain and report on accounting records. IFRS is now widely accepted as the common accounting language, enabling business and financial reporting to be understood from company to company and country to country. In the Netherlands, IFRS is now the standard for large listed companies. All other companies may still voluntarily choose this IFRS standard or the regulations as set out in Dutch law.

Financial Management Training

For anyone in the company who is responsible for financial management and all its derivatives, it is very wise to know about these new developments in financial regulations. In some of the financial training Learnit Training also pays attention to the consequences of the introduction of IFRS. What makes it even more interesting to participate in these training courses is that the participants can also exchange experiences with each other in the field of IFRS. And of course everything is supervised by an experienced trainer.
