SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Bridge, an employee development suite from the makers of Canvas, announced today that it has received a coveted Brandon Hall Group Excellence Award. Brandon Hall Group awarded Bridge the bronze for implementing learning technology in conjunction with SafetyNow, a workplace training platform that reduces costs, improves engagement and builds a safety culture. Bridge was previously recognized in 2015 and 2017 by the Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards for advances in learning management technology.
"We are honored that Bridge has been recognized once again by the prestigious Brandon Hall Group awards," said Matt Bingham, VP of product strategy and product marketing for Bridge. "Bridge strives to be an employee-first platform, and working with SafetyNow to increase employee safety was a rewarding project for all involved. This recognition validates what a positive impact Bridge and our employee-focused approach can have on any organization."
By creating courses that have up-to-date, modern, engaging content through Bridge, SafetyNow is able to keep learners interested in the education they're receiving. With social commenting features and ample capacity for video-based learning, SafetyNow is able to leverage the latest technology to ensure clients are learning, not yawning, during its safety and compliance trainings.
The award entries were evaluated by a panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group analysts and executives based upon the following criteria: how it fits the need, design of the program, functionality, innovation and overall measurable benefits.
"Excellence Awards winners personify innovation that drives business results. They embrace the future and embrace change and the challenges that go with it," said Rachel Cooke, COO of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program. "It is amazing in reviewing these entries how organizations – both large and small – work across functions to make human capital management a valuable asset that enables business success."
Excellence Awards winners will be honored at Brandon Hall Group's HCM Excellence Conference January 23-25, 2019, at the Hilton West Palm Beach in Florida. Select winners also will serve as presenters in breakout sessions sharing their leading practices during the two and a half-day conference.
