Chicago, Nov. 15 – Chief Learning Officer announced that the deadline for LearningElite application submission has been extended to Friday, Dec. 10. The LearningElite program honors the best organizations for learning and development. It is the only peer-reviewed ranking and benchmarking program to recognize and evaluate organizations that employ exemplary workforce development strategies.
”The application process is very deep and time consuming. Many organizations that are in the middle of the application process have asked for more time to complete their application,” said Dr. Stacey Boyle, vice president of research and advisory services for Chief Learning Officer magazine. “We want to make sure that all of the organizations that are applying have enough time to fill out the application to the best of their ability.”
“The LearningElite will afford companies a unique opportunity to evaluate both the scope and the value of the learning and development services they provide,” said Norm Kamikow, president of MediaTec Publishing and editor in chief of Chief Learning Officer magazine. “The program will enable learning organizations to objectively measure their effectiveness against those that consistently demonstrate positive business result.”
The LearningElite program will afford any size organization an opportunity to highlight and be recognized for outstanding outcomes in the field of learning and development. Organizations named to the LearningElite will be announced during a special ceremony at the Spring 2011 CLO Symposium, to be held March 28-30, 2011, at The Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island in Amelia Island, Fla.
