Pan Asia Banking Corporation PLC recently launched a state-of-the-art e-learning platform to empower its staff with knowledge and skills needed to perform better and be future ready in their relevant field of expertise in the bank.
Unlike yesteryear, where the staff or the students had to sit for hours in a class room or in a training centre, the new platform will enable the learner to learn from their desktop at his or her convenience.
The new platform was developed with a significance investment by the bank as part of their long term strategy to continuously update the knowledge in staff.
The investment on e-learning demonstrates Pan Asia Bank’s continuous commitment towards bringing convenience to its 1,500 staff to upgrade and bridge any knowledge gaps while enabling them to keep abreast with the new developments that are taking place in all areas of the banking industry.
Nimal Tillekeratne, CEO of Pan Asia Bank ceremonially inaugurated the launch of the very first four e-learning modules at a function held in Head Office recently.
Speaking at the launch event, Tillekeratne told that he considers this as an important step in building skills in the staff and considers the management time and money spent on this as an investment which will yield results over many decades ahead given the skill gap facing the entire industry.
There are four e-learning modules which encourage the staff to self – learn, at their convenience. Each interactive brief learning module lasts for 10 to 12 minutes explaining the product, its key features, benefits to customers etc and the user will have to answer questions at the end, in order to successfully complete the module.
The bank hired a highly experienced team of professionals to design these e-learning modules covering products, processes, service quality & regulatory aspects ably supported by product owners and experts in the Bank.
“Today marks an important milestone for Pan Asia Bank’s Human Resources Department as we are pleased to introduce the new e learning module as a modern training delivery method in Pan Asia bank effective Mid July 2018. There will be four more e-leaning modules which will be added to the system by early August this year”, Said Thushari Malalgoda, the Senior Manager, Human Resources at Pan Asia bank
“These programmes, are aimed at contribute towards capacity building for leadership, supporting career progression and personal development” she further added.
