The 10th Annual Learning! 100 Awards honors these top 25 organizations for excellence in learning development for 2020. This year has been a challenge for all organizations. Yet, learning and development has responded.
Over these ten years, the Learning! 100 has recognized organizations from Amazon to ZoomInfo; Teams of 3 to 1.5 million; all whom continue to innovate, collaborate, and develop learning cultures that drive enterprise and talent performance.
In 2020, these 25 elite organizations have solved business problems every learning team grapples with; learner engagement; the challenge of rapidly evolving technology, changing learning needs; and the COVID-19 pandemic. But learning teams never quit. They innovated, collaborated, tapped talent across the world to help. The 2020 Learning! 100 winners represent the best in learning.
This year, the National Football League hosted the first NFL draft all virtually. The Veterans Affairs Acquisition Academy shared their training expertise with other federal agencies. Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative and U.S. Office of Personnel Management collaborated on Total Learning Architecture, an open learning ecosystem. Many organizations have reacted and filled the gaps created by COVID-19. Florida Virtual Schools, Khan Academy, PBS, Scholastic, Center for Disease Control, National Institute of Health, and many learning organizations, have opened their learning resources and portals for free to parents, students, educators, and enterprises in need.
We are proud to honor the top 25 Learning! 100 organizations and thank them for their leadership, innovation, collaboration, and humanity.
