Organizations continually need to enhance skills and knowledge of their
employees in tune with changes in technologies and business models. However, it
is not practically possible to arrange for trainers for just about every skill.
Traditionally, training at Essar involved huge investments on the entire process
and towards logistics to reach to the entire spectrum of users across business
verticals spanning Steel, Energy, Power, Communications, Shipping,
Constructions, BPO and Information Technology. Also, it was a challenge to
monitor the effective usage of such a training system. The company implemented
an e-learning solution for employees, so they could get trained at convenience
and also to ensure uniformity in training modules. The portal caters to over
thirteen thousand employees, across multiple geographical locations. It helped
Essar as an organization to aspire for higher knowledge capital using the
e-learning initiative with minimum investment. The application has been designed
on a multi-tier architecture model using .NET Framework 2.0 with AJAX components
and SQL Server 2005 as database on Windows platform. The cost of physical
training at remote locations has now reduced without compromising on the
learning objectives.
