The only peer-reviewed ranking and benchmarking program developed in collaboration with chief learning officers and senior workforce development practitioners, the LearningElite has become the industry’s most valuable benchmarking tool. The program utilizes rigorous evaluation methodologies to objectively assess both the scope and value of participants’ learning and development practices and to rank the organizations based upon the execution and impact of these initiatives.
According to Sarah Kimmel, director of research and advisory services for the Human Capital Media Group, which publishes Chief Learning Officer, “The LearningElite’s incisive analysis yields solid data that prove L&D initiatives are part of an organization’s value equation. It also validates what separates the best from the rest. A LearningElite organization has an aligned, precisely executed learning strategy that is backed by leadership commitment. It consistently delivers learning impact that fosters competitive advantage, drives business results and makes a high-performing organization sustainable.”
For the 2014 benchmarking, CLO received a record-breaking quantity of applications from “progressive, proactive, performance-oriented organizations around the world,” said Norm Kamikow, HCM president and editor-in-chief. “The 58 organizations that achieved LearningElite status stood out as true innovators in enterprise education. Chief Learning Officer is proud to acknowledge the impact and impressive accomplishments of Love’s and the other LearningElite organizations.”
