SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Oct. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the recent recognition as the Top Learning Organization in the world by Elearning! Magazine's Learning! 100 list for 2013, SuccessFactors, an SAP company, announced it was recognized as a Gold award winner by Chief Learning Officer Magazine's (CLO Magazine) 2013 Learning in Practice Awards and ranked a Gold and Bronze finalist in three 2013 Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards.
"Today, businesses are facing not a shortage of labor, but an experience gap," said Shawn Price, president, SuccessFactors, SAP Cloud. "With 10,000 people projected to retire each day for the next decade in the U.S. alone, and expectations that in just two years people born between 1980 and 2000 will become the majority in the workforce, filling that experience gap is crucial. Building a skilled workforce demands a learning system that meets the changing needs of both the workforce and the business – capable of delivering relevant, discoverable content anytime, anywhere, in bite-sized chunks. I'm proud that SuccessFactors has been recognized with two leading industry awards for not just our Learning Management application, but how our Learning team is implementing it with our own employees."
In its tenth year, CLO Magazine's Learning in Practice Awards recognizes industry leaders who have demonstrated excellence in the design and delivery of workforce learning and development programs. As a Gold finalist in the Business Impact category, Jenny Dearborn, chief learning officer, SAP Cloud, was recognized as a top "learning executive who [has] implemented a significant measurement or evaluation program that has demonstrated exceptional business impact from [her] workforce development programs in the past year."
"The Learning in Practice Awards were established to recognize transformational and visionary leaders in enterprise education," said Norm Kamikow, president and editor in chief of Human Capital Media Group, which publishes CLO Magazine. "SuccessFactors stands out as an industry leader that truly champions innovation and transforms it into learning and value for its organization."
In addition, the 2013 Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards ranked SuccessFactors' Learning organization as Gold-winning in the "Best Learning Measurement Approach" and "Best Sales Onboarding" categories. The Best Learning Measurement Approach recognizes workplace learning measurement programs that assess the outcomes and organizational impact of a learning program. The Best Sales Onboarding Program honors best practices for onboarding new salespeople into the organization that are effective and efficient. SuccessFactors was also awarded Bronze in the "Best Program for Sales Training and Performance" category, which celebrates workplace learning programs that were specifically designed to address sales performance objectives through sales training.
"We are extremely proud to honor SuccessFactors for receiving Gold and Bronze in three Excellence Awards for 2013," said Mike Cooke, chief executive officer of Brandon Hall Group, Inc. "SuccessFactors is among an elite group of organizations that excelled in developing measurable, sustainable programs that produced outstanding business results in workplace learning and sales onboarding."
The 2013 Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards were announced through a live webinar on September 26th, hosted by Brandon Hall Group's chief executive officer Mike Cooke. CLO Magazine's Learning in Practice Awards finalists were announced at the Fall 2013 Chief Learning Officer Symposium at Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa in Palm Springs, California on September 30th.
