Company training is an institution regulated by Italian Law 338 of 2000, according to which companies can apply to INPS for a reimbursement of 0.30% equal to the contributions paid for each individual employee.
The reimbursement is part of the interprofessional funds, also known as “company training plans” or “individual training plans”, whose objective is to improve the skills of resources.

Corporate training: what it is
Corporate training means investing in people in order to improve work performance and achieve growth. Training is aimed at employees and managers and is meant to give them the right motivation to perform their tasks at their best.
The main instrument of corporate training is training courses. Knowing how to organise courses and choosing the right platform to deliver them is half the battle.

Conducting corporate training is not so complicated. For example, if you are an entrepreneur and would like to train new resources, you might consider internships and apprenticeship contracts.

Continuous training refers to a type of training that continues throughout one’s career. In order to implement it, it is necessary for managers to choose to sacrifice a small part of the time dedicated to the production of products/services in favour of time dedicated to training.

We said in the incipit that Italian Law 338 of 2000 allows companies to request a reimbursement from INPS of 0.30% equal to the contributions paid for each individual employee. This is, to all intents and purposes, a case of facilitated training, i.e. a specific “bonus” designed precisely to help public and private employees in their professional development.
Training beyond working hours
It is not the most common form and is most often applied where it is not mandatory. If it is, however, the CEO must provide a “rebalancing” plan for any inconvenience caused.
