We understand that different people have different needs. Individuals learn in ways unique to themselves and typically respond better when allowed to take responsibility for their own learning. A fair percentage of ongoing learning at Deloitte includes self-directed education and just-in-time learning activities, such as reading and Internet searches. Falling within this category is the personal pursuit of certifications or licenses that are appropriate to your practice area and specialty. We encourage and support these activities in such ways as providing time during paid workdays for taking exams, offering financial support and in some cases, providing incentives to continue your education. Details vary according to the country and function in which you are working, as well as the industry you serve.
