THE Junta has ruled that each of its employees is entitled to at least 37.5 hours of paid professional or personal development.

The development includes a wide range of activities, from self-help and personal leadership programmes and includes courses on buddhist meditation.

Spokesman for the regional government Carlos Blanco said the courses are so varied due to the many different working environments of its 250,000 employees.

He added that every course or programme is ‘always linked to work activity’.

Discussing the meditation courses, Blanco said they are very common in the private sector and are used often to train employees, adding that there was no reason a public employee could not also find benefit.
