On January 2008, BPS (Suisse) gave eLab the mandate to introduce eLearning within the training plan of its stagiaire. The project has been successfully carried out along two years and officially closed with a public event, last 11 March, when the Auditorium of USI hosted the “stagiaire day”. Stagiaire presented their analysis and financial plan for some local enterprises, based on services and products of BPS (Suisse).
The collaboration between eLab and BPS (Suisse) is going on with a new training project for consultants. It is about to support and monitor the training of 90-100 people, who work at the front office and have, therefore, direct relation with customers. The key for a quality consultancy is an excellent knowledge of the products offered by the bank; the new training plan focuses right on bank products.

BSI (Banca della Svizzera Italiana) has given eLab the commitment to introduce a new software for supporting the bank daily activities. It is a delicate intervention of change management, which will involve a large part of the bank staff. The challenge for eLab and BSI is not only represented by employees’ training on the use of the new software, but also by the creation of a collaborative environment among them.
