Boston, MA (PRWEB) December 10, 2015
Harvard Business Publishing today announced that its new offering LeadingEdge has won a “Best Advance in Unique Learning Technology” Gold Award from Brandon Hall Group, the pre-eminent human capital management (HCM) research and analyst firm. Nominations were judged by Brandon Hall analysts in conjunction with an international panel of industry experts. Criteria included innovation, functionality, design of the solution, and overall measurable benefits.
“We’re thrilled to be recognized by Brandon Hall Group with this award,” said Ray Carvey, Executive Vice President of Corporate Learning and International at Harvard Business Publishing. “This recognition validates our approach of providing access to high quality, relevant content in the way that users need and expect – from anywhere, on any device – with the ability to engage with it and share it with colleagues.”
“Our award winners are the most visionary and innovative developers of HCM technology solutions that move organizations forward in serving employees, customers and investors,” said Brandon Hall Group Chief Operating Officer Rachel Cooke, who runs the awards program. “I think everyone can learn from the achievements of our award recipients.”
LeadingEdge is the premier source for leadership and management content. Learning and development professionals can use LeadingEdge to fuel both formal and informal leadership development programs that meet the needs of today’s busy learner, while leaders can use the solution as an educational resource to improve their leadership skills and to drive initiatives within their teams. LeadingEdge is a cloud-based, digital resource designed for leaders at all professional levels to be able to easily access, share and curate world-class thought leadership from Harvard Business School faculty and other renowned business thinkers published in Harvard Business Review and Harvard Business Review Press.
InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, uses LeadingEdge to bring outside expertise in to enhance their blended learning offerings. At IHG, the belief is “everyone is a leader,” no matter his or her level at the organization. LeadingEdge has become an integral way for the organization to not only emphasize but also provide the tools to make that philosophy a reality. LeadingEdge is being used in two ways at IHG: one as part of its Leadership Academy, in which employees throughout the organization can access LeadingEdge content that is specifically mapped to levels in IHG’s Leadership Framework and to specific critical leadership capabilities for IHG’s business. LeadingEdge is also used as a self-service tool for all employees to connect them with real-world examples and Harvard Business Publishing expertise when they need it.
“LeadingEdge is an investment in our people used to drive learning, development and leadership within our organization. It’s an essential resource supporting our blended learning approach, bringing outside thinking into IHG,” said Corinna Davis, Leadership Development manager at IHG. "The resource is used in tandem with our leadership development programs, supporting all our leaders on the different levels of our leadership framework to develop against the Leadership Competencies and critical skills that have been identified to help us succeed.”
