E-Learning for the Workplace: Creating Canada's Lifelong Learners – Bank of Montreal (2001)

The Bank of Montreal (BMO) has been using e-learning since the early 1990s. Today, BMO’s e-learning strategy integrates web-based learning technologies with organizational performance.

BMO’s approach to e-learning grew out of organizational change; the advent and use of new technologies; and an evolution in the company’s thinking around learning and employee development.

In 1994, BMO constructed its own national Institute for Learning (IFL). The facility is devoted to the innovative delivery of employee learning activities. Employees attend the IFL to develop new skills and knowledge, and to take part in innovative program delivery initiatives.

BMO’s e-learning initiatives include the Learning for Success program, which helps employees develop strengths in marketing, sales, and risk management; the virtual classroom, where learners complete a preliminary self-assessment and establish learning for self-directed study; and the Knowledge Café, which uses the bank’s technology platform to encourage formal and informal collaborative learning activities.

E-learning has allowed BMO to centralize the training and development needs of different business units and career tracks; maintain consistent quality and update content quickly; and reduce travel expenses and classroom scheduling costs.
