SUNRISE, FL (PRWEB) January 18, 2007
Learn.com®, the leader in on-demand workforce development and productivity, announced today that Delta Dental of Kansas was inducted into the Balanced Scorecard Hall of Fame on November 10, 2006. Delta Dental of Kansas became the smallest employer worldwide to be honored for its use of a popular business-management strategy. The Wichita-based company is now one of 84 organizations that have been inducted into the Balanced Scorecard Collaborative Hall of Fame, which publicly recognizes companies around the world. The Hall of Fame honors companies that use the Balanced Scorecard in an exemplary manner to become strategy-focused, successfully execute their strategies, and achieve breakthrough performance results.
"The Balanced Scorecard has made it possible for Delta Dental of Kansas to clearly define our strategy, communicate the strategy to both our employees and board of directors, and align our initiatives to the strategy," says Linda Brantner, Delta Dental's President & Chief Executive Officer. The Balanced Scorecard concept, created by Dr. Robert Kaplan and David Norton in 1992, has been implemented by corporations and government agencies worldwide. It emphasizes looking beyond financial information when considering strategy development and execution. The Balanced Scorecard supplements traditional financial measures with criteria that measures performance from three additional perspectives - those of the customer, internal business process, and learning and growth."
Delta Dental of Kansas launched its e-Learning program in November 2005 to enhance its learning and growth initiatives. The Learn.com LearnCenter platform was selected as the learning and talent management platform for the company due to its reputation and the capability to provide online courses tailored to employee development and human capital readiness. At Delta Dental, "Strategy in Action" is the theme of the LearnCenter, reinforcing the relationship between company strategy and employee development.
