DENVER, Sept. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Pinsight® (www.pinsight.biz), an executive-assessment, software-as-a-service startup is proud to announce that its live, virtual leadership simulations received the Silver award for Best Use of Games or Simulations for Learning in the 2016 Brandon Hall Group Human Capital Management Excellence Awards. The winners are listed at http://www.brandonhall.com/excellenceawards/past-winners.php.
Winning a Brandon Hall Group Excellence Award means an organization is an elite innovator within Human Capital Management. The award signifies that the organization's work represents a leading practice in that HCM function," said Rachel Cooke, COO of Brandon Hall Group.
"We are honored and excited to receive this award, especially in the face of such strong competition," says Martin Lanik, CEO of Pinsight. "It validates our virtual assessment center solution as best-of-class."
"Imagine a live virtual simulation: today, you are the executive tasked with bringing a new product to market. What's your go-to-market strategy? How will you engage your team? The phone rings and there is your struggling direct report (actual live human actor) in a webcam chat seeking your help," explains Lanik. Pinsight simulations place employees in the hot seat and let them practice leadership skills in a safe environment.
Through its integrated data analytics, Pinsight helps companies make accurate succession decisions, and get their leaders ready faster. "This is not your traditional manager training. We have taken the previously $10,000 day-in-the-life developmental experience and moved it online, so that leaders at all levels and companies of all sizes can benefit," adds Lanik.
