Abstract: The paper deals with an analysis of sources of finance for corporate education in the Czech Republic during the covid-19 pandemic in 2021, and compares such concept with conditions in 2016. The research is based on results of two questionnaire surveys. The first survey, where 607 companies were involved, took place in 2016, whilst the second one (with 506 companies participating) in the first half of 2021. Both surveys examined whether different types of funding employee education depend on company size, with two hypotheses being established. The first hypothesis (i.e. Using external sources of finance for employee education depends on company size) was confirmed, as large companies use more external sources than smaller companies. However, the second hypothesis, which was to prove a claim that the share of funding employee education solely from funds, projects, grants and subsidies will have an increasing tendency (when comparing the first and the second period under review), was not confirmed.
