Nominations Open for 2014 Learning In Practice Awards
Outstanding workforce development professionals honored by Chief Learning Officermagazine
Chicago, May 19, 2014 — Chief Learning Officer magazine announced today that nominations are now open for the 2014 Learning In Practice Awards. Established more than a decade ago, the covetedawards honor workforce development leaders who have demonstrated excellence in the design and delivery of enterprise education programs.
"The Learning In Practice awards single out industry leaders who truly champion innovative employee development and use it to heighten performance, support business strategies and drive results for the enterprise," said Norm Kamikow, president and editor-in-chief of Human Capital Media Group, which publishes the magazine. “Each year, we receive hundreds of nominations that demonstrate, without a doubt, that learning is one of the most influential factors affecting the success of today’s most progressive and profitable organizations.”
Kamikow also encouraged organizations of all sizes to nominate the individuals who are leading their enterprise education initiatives. Gold, silver and bronze Learning In Practice Awards are presented annually in two broad categories. Practitioner awards recognize transformational and visionary learning and development professionals and are awarded in two divisions: Organizations with more than 10,000 employees and organizations with fewer than 10,000 employees. Provider awards are given to qualified L&D service providers, vendors and consultants for their work on behalf of a client organization.
In addition, one senior learning executive is singled out annually for the prestigious CLO of the Year designation. The industry’s equivalent of a lifetime achievement award, this highest practitioner honor is a peer award with the winner selected by previous winners of the title. It is awarded to the executive who best exemplifies leadership qualities, creates the vision for change in his or her organization and adds value to the stakeholders.
The 2014 winners will be recognized during a special Learning In Practice Awards dinner at the Fall 2014 CLO Symposium on Sunday, Oct. 5 at the Park Hyatt Aviara in Carlsbad, California. Keynoting the awards ceremony will be Rob Lauber, 2013 CLO of the Year and vice president of Yum! University at international hospitality giant Yum! Brands. In addition to receiving a specially designed award during the ceremony, the 2014 winners also will be recognized in a special section in the December issue of Chief Learning Officer magazine.
All learning and development professionals at for-profit, nonprofit, government and academic organizations are eligible for the awards and encouraged to apply. Nominations will be accepted until June 23, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. Central time. For more informationabout the Learning In Practice awards, please visit CLOmedia.com/awards.
