Now in its fourth year, the Chief Learning Officer LearningElite Benchmarking program, established to recognize the best in the learning industry, is once again complete.
This year 60 organizations are being recognized for delivering exceptional value through learning and development using five key performance indicators: learning strategy, leadership commitment, learning execution, learning impact and business performance results.
The 2014 LearningElite organizations have improved efficiencies, established demonstrable business impact from learning, and most importantly, served their organizations and employees in ways that enrich the learning industry. The diversity of this group is evidence that exceptional learning and development can be achieved regardless of size, geography or investment level.
This group was selected by a panel of judges with an average of more than 17 years of experience in the learning industry, and representing a wide range of global organizations large and small, public and private, in a variety of industries.
Accenture, this year’s top-ranked company, will enter the Winners’ Circle alongside past LearningElite winners AT&T and General Mills. Winners’ Circle members are removed from ranking competition for three years but continue to complete a LearningElite application and provide data that is included in overall benchmarking.
