MOSTLY AI will provide you the support you need to strive for the best version of yourself. Every year, all MOSTLIES receive a 1000€ budget for learning and development. Your career and personal development matters to us. You will have a budget per joining year that you can use for courses, webinars, certifications, books, subscriptions etc.

How can I use my L&D budget?

  1. You identify the training focus and discuss potential training programs or methods in agreement with your manager.

  2. You submit a request for a virtual credit card via Spendesk, which will go to your Manager & Finance for approval.

    1. Cost centre is: [pick your department]

    2. Expense category: 632 - Learning & Development

  3. You will have to take care of all the arrangements (registration, orders, etc.) independently.

  4. If you need to drop or cancel any training, please coordinate with your Manager and try to get a refund of any fees paid (if this is not possible, the cost will come out of your budget anyway).

When can I use my L&D budget?

  1. Your budget becomes available after your probation period.

  2. Employees under termination processes can’t make use of this benefit.

Is there any possibility for me to go above the allocated budget?

This could be a yes, as long as this has been approved by your Manager + Senior Management (VP, CEO or Founder). If you have identified a Learning & Development opportunity that is out of the budget, please reach out to your Manager and explain the ways in which this would be beneficial for yourself, for the team, and for MOSTLY AI. This will be treated on a case by case scenario.


We believe that learning is a constant and living process. For one to keep evolving, one must take chances, learn from the mistakes and build on experience.
