The Elearning! Media Group announced the Learning! 100 top learning organizations for 2014 at the Annual Learning! 100 Awards Dinner & Reception held last night at the Hilton at the Anaheim Convention Center. The awards program is hosted by Elearning! and Government Elearning! magazines, and honors the top global 100 learning organizations across the private and public sectors.
In its fourth year, the Learning! 100 Award honors organizations that embrace collaboration and innovation and are high-performance organizations. This year, half of the top 10 were first-time honorees. They included High Tech Academy of San Diego, Calif.,WD-40 Company, NASCAR, PGA of America and ADI, a Honeywell Company.

Media Group.
Imagine hosting safety training for NASCAR at 180 speedways around the country. Cars are racing at 200+ mph while emergency, maintenance and safety teams standby — just inches away. Then, discover all the team members are volunteer contractors dedicated to course safety. This is Karen Masencup’s and her training team’s challenge: 100 percent proficiency, zero tolerance for errors. At the Enterprise Learning! Conference, Masencup shares how she get 100 percent buy-in from all volunteers at courses across the country — and her secret to retaining these talented team members for NASCAR.
Imagine being a health care provider in the era of Obamacare. Ranked as one of the top 10 health providers in the U.S.A., Scripps Health is a four-time award-winner of the Learning! 100, and named No. 1 in the 2014 Learning! 100. Every year, Scripps Health invests in team learning and development. Recruiting and retaining new nurses is the challenge, in an industry that sees a 57 percent churn rate in the first two years. Scripps Health developed an on-boarding, training and mentoring program that reduced new nurse churn rate to less than half of the national average.
