dc.description.abstract This paper focuses on reviewing the learning behaviour of individual employee in the firm over other influencing factors in knowledge based industries in Sri Lanka. Using a stratified random sampling technique, a sample of 143 employees from jobs in Database Administration & Development, Systems & Network Administration, Web Development & Programming and Software Engineering was selected as respondents for the survey from 13 knowledge based industrial firms in Sri Lanka. After descriptive analysis of the characteristics of respondents, the causal relationships among predictor and outcome variables were tested using partial least squares regression. The results indicated that the use of digital methods, digital tools, organizational identification and knowledge sharing are positively influenced by employee’s learning in the firm. Yet, employee’s turnover intention has negatively influenced employee learning. en
