Abstract


This case flyer and the accompanying article1enable a discussion on the intriguing concept of individual learning and development. It provides a platform to debate on the relationship between employee engagement and employee productivity. The contemporary corporate scenario has witnessed a rise in the need for designing and implementing effective learning tools and techniques for employees across all levels. Organizations have realized that this is by no means an easy feat to attain given that these learning programs must be designed to ensure a consistently high employee engagement.
How can highly engaging learning programs be designed and implemented? What measures must be taken to ensure employee engagement? Who is responsible for ensuring employee engagement? An interesting trend has been the increase in the Learning & Development (L&D) budgets in Indian organizations, especially over the past 2 years. Nevertheless, these L&D budgets must be worked out to not only meet the diverse needs of the learners but to also meet the strategic business objectives. How can the Return On Investment (ROI) on employees’ learning investments be measured? Should companies be mandated to allocate budgets to meet the L&D requirements?
