Siemens Southern Africa is set to implement two major initiatives as part of its strategy of e-transformation within the organisation and developing e-business solutions for the local market.
These will involve a three-month e-learning pilot programme for employees and the expansion of the company's on-line recruitment programme, which will become part of Siemens' international on-line recruitment network. Some 150 Siemens employees will take part in the e-learning pilot project, which begins in June. It will make use of Microsoft suite on-line learning software to test the acceptance of electronic learning among employees.
Classroom training will be substituted with on-line e-learning module during the three-month pilot phase. Siemens will then assess the level of acceptability of the new learning method. It will also evaluate the potential return on investment from e-learning - both in terms of possible cost-savings and its ability to enhance the skills and knowledge-base of learners.
If this assessment proves positive, Siemens will go ahead with full implementation of the e-learning concept. The programme, expected to be fully rolled-out by October, will address the full recruitment process - from applying for a position through to the final job offer.
