The relationship between performance and learning
CAN eLearning redefine an organisation’s bottom line?
In the fast-moving workplace, one would assume the retention and ongoing training of employees would be top of mind to organisations. After all, as of 2016, South Africa’s unemployment rate was a staggering 26.6 percent.
Employee training is considered a crucial element for organisations to reach business goals such as revenue growth, cost reduction and enhanced employee productivity. The relationship between performance and learning is paramount, without learning employees cannot develop performance enhancing skills, without employee performance, organisations cannot succeed.
A recent study by Deloitte found 61 percent of South African organisations concede to being unprepared to provide leadership programmes for millennials and 84 percent of companies consider a lack of training to be major problem area. How can organisations resolve the training gap?
The answer lies in developing a culture of learning. eLearning has improved corporate bottom line with a 26 percent higher revenue per employee and an average 18 percent boost in employee engagement. Angie Ervin is marketing manager at New Leaf Technologies.
