Abstract

In today’s competitive business environment, many organisations are adopting e-learning systems in the workplace as a means for knowledge sharing and knowledge acquisition. E-learning is about cost effectiveness and delivery according to Macpherson, Elliot, Harris and Homan (2004), while other organisations see it as a benefit as they see it as a way to increase employee retention, provide effective training which can be updated quickly if necessarily and is available anytime and anywhere (Minton, 2000). This is why many organisations have spent considerable resources implementing e-learning as part of their learning and development strategy.

There are many articles and studies on the importance of implementing e-learning in an organisation to gain ‘lifelong learning’. Yet there is very little about the effectiveness of e-learning on employee engagement or about the need for support from line managers throughout the process – especially during induction, as this is when employee engagement is highest. Henderson (2003) writes that not only must managers control and monitor the whole e-learning process, but that its success rests with the management team.
