Learning and training at the workplace is critical for economic development of companies and their competitiveness. Nevertheless, it is known that especially small firms have difficulties with long term planning and systematic cultivation of employees’ knowledge and skills. The challenge is to integrate learning and training activities into the work process and to provide benefits and incentives for both managers and employees, which would motivate both to use such services. The main aim of our study was the development of a Web-based learning environment that supports this objective as well as piloting and evaluation in real settings. The outcomes have shown that although it is not easy to get small enterprises involved in such experiments, there is a potential to use personal learning environments for supporting workplace learning in small companies.
