B&Q PLC is planning to start its biggest electronic-learning project. The training will be meant for all 35,000 staff, with 15,000 set to take the course in its first year. 'This is probably the largest programme we've done to date,' says Steve Hemmant, project leader for electronic-learning at B&Q. The course will vary depending on the job role of the user. 'We wanted to show individuals where they fit into the stock-management process and put across how their actions would affect those in other roles,' says Hemmant.
