eLearning has been utilized by organizations around the world to provide training to their employees. However, since the pandemic, the demand for eLearning has grown rapidly as a hybrid model of work has been adopted by organizations, and in some cases, employees are completely working from home. There has been a shift observed in the skills required by the employees during the pandemic Many organizations are working on the employee's need to acquire the skills to address the changing needs of the business. Some factors that gained importance during the pandemic include agility, up-skilling and reskilling, innovation and work and learning balance. Post-pandemic, redefining productivity has become more important than ever and the existing literature review fails to capture these dimensions of productivity. This study will capture perspectives on various aspects of productivity through the lens of the Future of Work [emphasis added], Future Skills [emphasis added], and professional experience will be embedded into the study using the Human Capital Theory and conceptual framework.
The study will employ established models, literature review, and professional experiences to design the quantitative survey using a five-point Likert scale and will be analyzed using descriptive statistics and inferential statistics to draw conclusions on the impact of eLearning on different parameters of employee productivity. This study will also provide insights to the learning and development professionals to make appropriate changes to the eLearning curriculum and align it to the changing needs of the organization. The wider HR fraternity can also review the employee's goal-setting process and align it towards future skills, which in turn can be utilized as a part of the performance management system to evaluate the performance of an employee. This will lead to a practical approach toward performance management.
