The main reasons for study among employees of five age groups and the rate of support they receive from their employers are portrayed in the given chart.
From the first chart, it is understood that there is a gradual decrease in study for career reasons as the age advances, and this decline is by 10 to 20% as the age progresses. On the other hand, the rate of employees who study for interest increases as the age advances. It reaches nearly 70% among the age group over 49 from just 10% under 26. It is interesting to note that, nearly the same rate of 40 to 49 years age group study for career and interest.
Turning to the second graph, the least employer support (both time and financial assistance) is given to the age group 30 to 39 (just over 30%), whereas the support given to the youngest age group is almost its double(over 60%).The support declines in the 26-29 group, whereas the age groups over 39 gets support between 35 and 45%.
Overall, it is understood from the charts, the reasons for study is diverse for different age groups and the maximum employer support is given to those who do study for career than for interest.
