Cable & Wireless saves money using online learning tools

schedule 30th June 2011 by Virtual College in Virtual College

Business owners looking to train their staff using online learning courses could be encouraged following a recent announcement from Cable & Wireless (C&W).

The telecoms company has reported savings of £1.5 million as a result of selecting cost-effective internet programmes to improve the performance of employees.

After teaming up with education organisation Kineo for the past four years, the company has used a number of effective teaching methods to help staff in a fast-paced workplace.

The latest training scheme aims to inform employees about a range of subjects, such as data protection and security essentials, through simple 40-minute modules.

Speaking to, Mike Booth from C&W said: "I wanted to ensure that these courses were packaged as a programme that was not only attractive and easy to use, but also highly efficient at producing measurable learning outcome."

Kineo designs custom e-learning courses for businesses to improve the knowledge of employees through considering business objectives and target audiences for training.
