Advantage for training and development
Omega 365’s unique Advantage program is your gateway to international Team Events, local get-togethers, and a wide range of Holiday Houses, but did you know you can also choose to use your Advantage points on training and development?
Advantage points are not only for booking teambuilding trips and holiday accommodation; it is also possible to use your Advantage Account to advance your professional development via relevant training courses, which you can pay for using Advantage points.
Choose your Advantage
The ability for each team member to adapt the Advantage program to reflect their goals, within a range of choices that reflect Omega 365’s values, is key to the welfare program’s popularity.
“Our Advantage program is designed to promote teambuilding, and ensure our colleagues enjoy quality downtime with their families, but it can also be used for further education,” explains Aslaug Østrem Nesheim, Department Manager for Business Support, and a key member of Omega 365’s Advantage team.
“We support professional development and therefore also allow our team to choose to use their Advantage points on relevant, work-related training courses that may interest them.”
Course approval and reimbursement
If you have a training course you would like to use your Advantage points on, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with details of the course in question. Our Advantage team will contact you to approve the course and outline the best plan for payment and reimbursement.
In general, employees initially pay for their approved course themselves, before completing an Expense form on omega.omega365.com; the cost can then be refunded and, instead, deducted in Advantage points. The training course in question may require approval from the employee’s Omega 365 manager. It is also necessary to have enough Advantage points in your account to pay for the course in its entirety. It may also be possible to use Advantage points to pay for software and other materials related to your training course.
“Training courses are currently approved on a case-by-case basis, so we encourage anyone who may be interested in utilizing their points for further education to contact us so that we can find the best solution possible in their particular situation,” concludes Nesheim.
Omega 365’s unique Advantage program provides employees with access to local events, international team building trips, and a wide range of holiday accommodation, often at home and abroad. Team members in Omega 365 earn Advantage points, which can be used to sign up for team events, accommodation offers, or approved training courses.
