Learning! 100 Winners Announced at Enterprise Learning! Summit

Top 100 Learning Organizations Named in First Annual Awards Program Elearning! Media Group (EMG), publishers of Elearning! and Government Elearning! magazines, announced the Learning! 100 Award recipients. The Learning! 100 Award recognizes 60 corporate and 40 public sector organizations for outstanding learning culture, innovation or collaboration that drives performance. Honorees cut across all industries and organization sizes from 24 to 1.6 million employees. “More than 300 organizations applied directly for consideration or were nominated by vendors, partners or Elearning! Magazine editors. Altogether, the Learning! 100 represent the best-of-the-best in learning and development organizations across the U.S.,” reports Catherine Upton, Group Publisher, Elearning! Media Group. The Learning! 100 Award program has a solid research-based approach that offers firms a level playing field despite size, and post-awards learning opportunities to improve firm rankings in subsequent years. Learning! 100 applicants were evaluated across three criteria: Aberdeen Group’s Best-in-Class Learning & Development assessment, EMG’s Learning Culture index, and overall organizational performance. Each submission received a rating for each section and scores were totaled to identify the top 100. The Learning! 100 ranking was determined by overall performance and the impact of their learning leadership. “The top ranked organizations all drive innovation and learning impact across their industries, nationally and/or globally. For example, Intel’s internal training programs are top performers. However, it’s their leadership in advancing U.S. innovation and competitive via programs like “Invest in America Alliance,” that sets them apart,” reports Upton.
