In fact, the organisation recently completed the rollout of an innovative, Web-based LMS, which will deliver online training to 8,500 employees in Great Britain, Europe, the U.S. and Asia. The project, which began in 2001, was kick-started when Cable & Wireless rolled out a new HR module from SAP, which included e-recruitment and e-HR, explains Mike Booth, director of e-learning strategy at Cable & Wireless.
