5.2. Knowledge management System Improvements
Knowledge sharing and transfer in Sterlite Tech is a challenge that current employees face.
Employees experience a lack of trust when it comes to passing on relevant information, documents,
and white papers. We recommend that the company may strengthen its Learning & Development
Department, which can get training content prepared by in-house experts, can make repositories of
the learning contents which can be accessible to its employees through the HRMS system under
Learning & Development section. The company can also launch a buddy program where a senior
manager from the new joiner’s department may be assigned his/her mentor. This mentor-mentee
relation can help in building a knowledge-sharing culture in the organization.
The company can incentivize its employees and make it a part of their KRAs to train the juniors/
reportees /subordinates. The same can be reviewed in the quarterly or semi-annual performance
review. On the flip side, the organization can incentivize learning and encourage people to learn and
take-up at least one relevant course per quarter, and the same may be reviewed in quarterly
A learning portal can be formed where people may share and discuss the various organization and
industry-related articles, newsletters, case studies, stories etc. The company can also launch a
monthly/ quarterly magazine circulated across its offices in India and globally, which can feature
technical and behavioural articles along with other things and activities happening across locations,
thus creating a platform for sharing the latest happenings, viewpoints, and their knowledge.
