Top 100 Learning Organizations Named in Second Annual Awards Program

CORONA, Calif., March 22, 2012Elearning! Media Group (EMG), publishers of Elearning! and Government Elearning! magazines, announced today 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 5 to 1.6 million employees.

 

“We are honored to recognize these top performing learning organizations for 2012.  Altogether, the Learning! 100 winners represent the best-of-the-best in learning and development multinational organizations,” 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 organizations’ 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 organizations. For example, American Heart Association’s mission is to reduce heart related mortalities. They embrace learning across our communities, medical practitioners and internal employees and volunteers.  Their mission is honorable, and their learning strategies are impactful,” reports Angeli Primlani, executive editor, Elearning! Media Group.
