Award-Winning Training is Great, But What Have You Done For Us Lately?

  • How does the learning you or your organization develop stack up?
  • Are your programs better, similar, or (gasp!) worse than industry standards?
  • Would you like to compete for one of various L&D awards to find out?

How can your team benefit from award competitions?

During this interactive session, Laurie Edelman will highlight how your L&D organization can compete for prestigious awards and industry recognition.  She will do this by sharing her team’s experience -- and some cheat sheets -- to get you started. 

In 2011, Bersin & Associates recognized Teradata with two “WhatWorks® Awards”:

  • The "Operational Training and Development Excellence" Award - Given in recognition of "Teradata MBA for New Hires", a blended development program for salespeople which begins the first day on the job and provides a roadmap for continuous learning.
  • The "Learning and Talent Technology Excellence" Award - Given in recognition of Teradata's computer-based training allowing customer service associates to practice guided labs on a virtual machine.

Learn from Laurie what it takes to earn this type of recognition for you and your organization.  You may find that your team is already high performing and simply not getting the recognition they deserve!

Explore this topic with your colleagues

To round out the session, Laurie will lead participants in a small-group activity where you explore how award winning teams - like hers and yours – can avoid “resting on their laurels” and continue delivering best-in-class, award-winning learning!
