It’s a real pleasure to work with such great companies whose employees are so eager to utilise their Academies and learn new skills
(PRWEB UK) 18 September 2014
Learning Technologies company Growth Engineering, in association with clients including Brakes Group, Bensons for Beds and Azlan Tech Data, has beaten hundreds of others to win a Silver and two Bronze Brandon Hall Excellence awards.
The entries were evaluated by an international panel of independent industry experts based on standards of performance, measurable business results and levels of innovation.
The Silver award for Best Sales Training Program for Extended Enterprise reflects the improvements in sales figures that Growth Engineering and Azlan (the Enterprise Specialist Distribution division of Tech Data, wholesale distributor of technology products) generated through Tech Data Academy. One individual who received sales training delivered an increase of 678% in sales across six different customer accounts – a truly remarkable feat – and proactive users on the Academy outperformed inactive users by 75% in terms of sales growth.
Growth Engineering was also awarded Bronze for Best in Learning Technology Implementations in association with Brakes for the Brakes Change Academy, which increased employee knowledge of systems change by 90%.
Bronze in the Best Results of a Learning Program category was awarded to Growth Engineering and Bensons for Beds, Britain’s largest bed retailer with over 270 stores and 1,800 employees, for Bensons Academy. The Academy boosted employee engagement, reduced attrition rates from 50% to 23% – saving the company £1,350,000 a year – and reduced training costs by £500,000.
Juliette Denny, Growth Engineering Managing Director, said: “Wow! Growth Engineering are overjoyed to receive these Brandon Hall Excellence awards in association with our lovely clients. It’s a real pleasure to work with such great companies whose employees are so eager to utilise their Academies and learn new skills.”
