Learning! 100 Award Winners Honored at Enterprise Learning! Conference 2014

The Top 100 Learning Organizations from Public and Private Sectors Convene to Celebrate Excellence

The Elearning! Media Group announced the Learning! 100 top learning organizations for 2014 at the Annual Learning! 100 Awards Dinner & Reception held last night at the Hilton at the Anaheim Convention Center. The awards program is hosted by Elearning! and Government Elearning! magazines, and honors the top global 100 learning organizations across the private and public sectors.

In its fourth year, the Learning! 100 Award honors organizations that embrace collaboration and innovation and are high-performance organizations. This year, half of the top 10 were first-time honorees. They included High Tech Academy of San Diego, Calif.,WD-40 Company, NASCAR, PGA of America and ADI, a Honeywell Company.

“All these organizations have one thing in common, they have changed the way they invest in learning. Learning is a core success factor within their organizations that drives business performance. From improving retention rates of new hires to instilling leadership values that drive performance across all team members, every one of us can be inspired and empowered by the Learning! 100 organizations’ successes,” touts Catherine Upton, Group Publisher, Elearning! Media Group.

Imagine hosting safety training for NASCAR at 180 speedways around the country. Cars are racing at 200+ mph while emergency, maintenance and safety teams standby — just inches away. Then, discover all the team members are volunteer contractors dedicated to course safety. This is Karen Masencup’s and her training team’s challenge: 100 percent proficiency, zero tolerance for errors. At the Enterprise Learning! Conference, Masencup shares how she get 100 percent buy-in from all volunteers at courses across the country — and her secret to retaining these talented team members for NASCAR.

Imagine being a health care provider in the era of Obamacare. Ranked as one of the top 10 health providers in the U.S.A., Scripps Health is a four-time award-winner of the Learning! 100, and named No. 1 in the 2014 Learning! 100. Every year, Scripps Health invests in team learning and development. Recruiting and retaining new nurses is the challenge, in an industry that sees a 57 percent churn rate in the first two years. Scripps Health developed an on-boarding, training and mentoring program that reduced new nurse churn rate to less than half of the national average.

Jeanne Meister, partner, Future Workplace, hosts Masencup, NASCAR, and David Dayton, Cricket Wireless, an AT&T Co, in the session “Learning! 100: The Collaborative Enterprise.” Discover how NASCAR assures safety on the track. And, learn how AT&T acquired Cricket Wireless and deployed sales and product training to more than 15,000 employees within 60 days.

The Learning! 100 are all about “The Business of Learning.” In a TedX-like session, Linda Jack, ADI, a Honeywell Co, discusses how ADI changed the learning culture and sales performance with a wholesale shift in values and rewards. Then, Dawes Marlatt, PGA of America, shares how his organization increased golfing across courses in America with targeted training and support.

We invite you to learn, network and share with the 2014 Learning! 100 winners over the next year. Elearning! Media Group will host monthly Learning! 100 Web seminars featuring winners with impactful programs and advice.
