2019 LearningElite Winners Press Release

Press Release


Industry’s preeminent magazine recognizes top learning and development organizations through its annual benchmarking program

Chicago, April 10, 2019 — Chief Learning Officer magazine, a publication of Human Capital Media, has announced the finalists of its ninth annual LearningElite Awards. The winners were announced during an awards gala at the CLO Symposium conference in Las Vegas April 1.

The LearningElite Awards program honors the best organizations for learning and development. This robust, peer-reviewed ranking and benchmarking program recognizes those organizations that employ exemplary workforce development strategies that deliver significant business results.

Special emphasis was placed this year on how these learning teams are helping their organizations adapt to and prepare for change.

“We know disruption impacts the organization, whether it’s market disruption, technology disruption, labor force disruption or regulatory disruption. However, we weren’t entirely prepared for how excited everyone would be to talk about this,” said Sarah Kimmel, vice president of research for HCM. “The positive, constructive response to disruption is to foster growth, agility and resilience; it is to empower people to think critically about new ways forward, creative innovations and collaborations that may prove fruitful. This mission — to grow the capacity of the individual, and with it, the organization, into something of greater scope and nuance — is the beating heart of learning and development.

“Disruption gives learning professionals a challenge that they are passionate to meet, a solvable puzzle that empowers people to achieve and innovate,” Kimmel added.

Among the 60 organizations recognized by this year’s awards program were KPMG, Vi, EY, AT&T and — the No. 1 2019 LearningElite organization — Nationwide.
