Emirates group to have region’s largest enterprise-wide learning management system
Edutech Middle East, a learning solutions provider, announced that the Emirates Group, which operates one of the fastest growing airlines in the world, has selected Plateau’s Learning Management Systems (LMS) to support learning and development for its global workforce. The project, which is the largest of its kind in the MENA region, allows the Emirates group to manage the cost and quality of training of up to 35,000 employees and partners across the globe. Edutech is the Star 1 partner of Plateau Systems in the Middle East and offers Plateau LMS as well as other learning and human capital management solutions from the US-based manufacturer.
Emirates has adopted a learner-centric approach to training employees and partners. This initiative encourages individuals to take responsibility for their own learning and development, and allows training and development professionals within the organization to focus on enhancing performance and facilitating learning. Plateau will also be used to track and improve Emirates’ training effectiveness and performance.
“In an increasingly competitive and demanding environment, retaining the quality and effectiveness of learning and development while reducing costs is a key focus of the Emirates Group,” said Linda Al Ansari, Manager L&D Shared Services at Emirates Group.
“Plateau is a critical enabler of our flexible learning and development strategy. As a critical part of the core infrastructure for our learning initiatives, Plateau will enable Emirates to meet current and future corporate training needs while facilitating and expediting employee and partner training and development across the globe,” added Ansari.
Commenting on the new project, ASF Karim, Managing Director, Edutech Middle East, said, “As a leading learning solution provider, we are always keen to offer our customers solutions that help them meet their business objectives, which is in line with our commitment towards enhancing performance through knowledge. A prime example and one of our key solutions is the Plateau System, which improves the learning management process, increases workforce productivity, and increases employee engagement and retention.”
“We are pleased that Emirates has selected Plateau as the underlying infrastructure supporting their training and development initiatives,” said Paul Sparta, Chairman and CEO, Plateau. “As a leader in the highly competitive travel and tourism market, Emirates is an excellent example of an organization looking to increase growth and sustain competitive advantage by implementing an effective people management strategy that focuses on empowering employees within the organization to advance their training and development.”
