Due to the increased demand from UK managers and professionals to skill up during furlough,
UK workers can and are encouraged to train during their time away from the workplace.
According to the government advice last updated on June 15th, “Furloughed employees can engage in training during hours which you record your employee as being on furlough, as long as in undertaking the training the employee does not provide services to, or generate revenue for, or on behalf of their organisation or a linked or associated organisation. Furloughed employees should be encouraged to undertake training.”
Despite economic challenges, furloughed employees now make up over one quarter of the workforce. Employees cite an increased amount of time and a desire to show value to their current and future employers as their primary reasons for wanting to skill-up during this difficult time.
Offering staff the opportunity of training whilst on furlough is a great way to enhance their skills without the pressure of their usual workload distracting them.
