BT opens learning to all

BT is making NETg’s Open Learning solution available to 100,000 staff via
the BT Academy, which sits within the BT intranet.

The two companies are conducting roadshows up and down the country to drive
the usage of the learning among employees. Staff are encouraged to try out the
courses and view demonstrations.

"We have a state-of-the-art learning system and wanted to demonstrate
how to access it and find material to support particular training and
development needs," says David Slingo, head of learning at the BT Academy.

"Our people now understand that e-learning can help to improve their
personal productivity and performance and therefore help us to maintain our
competitive advantage."

Marketing is vital when launching any new service to staff, and NETg
continues to work with customers after implementation to promote learning and
encourage usage.

"This ensures that strong results are seen and that people have access
to high-performance skills to help them excel in the workplace and remain
motivated, happy and inspired," says Laura Kelly, international marketing
communications manager at Thomson NETg. "In turn, this helps to ensure
business goals are achieved."

The BT initiative is being supported by Accenture HR Services and courses
available range from those on leadership and communication to the European
Computer Driving Licence (ECDL).
