HR must approach learning in a comprehensive manner. E-learning is not simply about technology anymore; it’s about improving the performance of the enterprise and linking that to improving the performance of the people. E-learning is without question the most efficient, cost-effective way to present coursework to large numbers of geographically dispersed, busy people. A comprehensive e-learning management system is the means for tracking learning initiatives and establishing links between improved skills and better company performance.
HR professionals must get involved with strategic dialogue at the executive level. The HR operation must interpret and convey how it can affect the performance of the enterprise by upgrading employee performance.
Companies must take seriously the development of an enterprise learning strategy that includes input from all stakeholders. A sound strategy will represent a unified vision of true performance improvement objectives and the methods to reach them.
