The employers often want that their employees study. I mean not in university, but just reading books or articles.
But I have never heard - how much.
If you are going to be the best, you can study 5 hours each day and then employer will be happy of course. Unless what you study does not bring profit to the company.
But if you don't study 5 hours each day, then for me the question arises - how much is the minimum so I can be calm that I done what I am responsible for.
I guess some employers when count the salary which they are going to pay - might include your extra time of studying. On the other hand - it is not written in the contract. (Or maybe it is in some companies, but I have not heard).
My friend says that it is a employees business.
Even if it is employees business, then there is a risk that employee might get fired from job one day because he did not do what the employer expected even when it was not in the contract, lets say technology is updated but employee did not learn it at home.
So is it ok to ask this? If not ok, then how to know what is the minimum so you could be calm?
I am more thinking about software developers context but this probably applies for any job which is non robotic and worked can learn something new.
And also - is it beneficial to ask this question? Because when not defined, then maybe you are not guilty if you study 1 minute per year. Once it is defined during interview - they will hope that you are making it for the salary you get.
