How E-Learning Drives Productivity in the Global Business

This is not productive.

As American business interests and the employees themselves are scattered throughout the world, workplace productivity issues also become global. The more than 78,000 employees of Apple Inc., for example, aren’t concentrated in one building in one city, where senior management can easily draw them into a single room to discuss process improvement and productivity. In fact, the Cupertino, Calif.- based company has employees working in more than 400 retail locations in 15 countries.2 In a global marketplace, technology becomes more important at all levels of the business – from the profit-center manufacturing and operations side to the management of people to drive business success.

Technology, or e-learning, can keep workers connected and help them understand:

(1) the profitability goals and objectives of the company,

(2) the “culture building” mission, vision and values of the company, as well as

(3) critical business skills that will help drive business productivity and hence profitability. Often, the New Zealand Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment’s “seven drivers of productivity” have been cited in examining ways to increase productivity in businesses of all sizes, including global multinational corporations.3

All of these productivity drivers can be addressed through the use of e- learning.
