CLO Gold Learning in Practice Award for Excellence in Social Learning

Now with this CLO award, others are clearly declaring PILtools as the best solution for cultural transformation out there.

Partners In Leadership (PIL) announced today that the company has received Chief Learning Officer (CLO) magazine’s highest Learning in Practice Award for Excellence in Social Learning. This award recognizes the most innovative social learning solution and employee communication and collaboration platform. The company received this distinguished award based on its partnering efforts with clients to deliver change management solutions and their platform that helps transform company culture using social learning curriculum and tools.

In 2014, PIL won Gold for Excellence in Content, making this the second year in a row where CLO has recognized PIL.

“Achieving gold for Excellence in Social Learning is a testament to the hard work and investment of the PIL team. As an advanced social learning and training platform, PILtools delivers great results for our clients,” said Roger Connors, CEO and co-founder of Partners In Leadership. “And we share this achievement with each of our clients whose improved cultures make our solutions really shine.”

PIL was nominated for this award by Daymon Worldwide, the global leader in consumables retailing. Daymon realized in late 2014 that new industry challenges and massive shifts in market behavior were forcing the company to change in order to remain competitive. The pioneer in private brand development and in-store demonstrations was facing mounting pressures as its retail clients were buffeted by large online retailers like Amazon, the emergence of niche physical and online retailers, and the global spread of “hard discount” chains like Aldi and Lidl from Europe.

With the increasingly saturated marketplace, Daymon engaged PIL to launch a culture change initiative across their entire enterprise and implemented the Partners In Leadership Culture Track Training process throughout their ranks. Utilizing PIL’s social learning curriculum and their innovative award-winning blended learning platform, PILtools, to facilitate learning transfer and culture change, Daymon launched a program that would have 5,000 full-time employees certified in the training.

“This marks the second major achievement this year for our market-leading platform, PILtools. IELA [International E-Learning Association] also recognized PILtools with its top honor as the #1 international blended learning solution,” continued Connors. “Now with this CLO award, others are clearly declaring PILtools as the best solution for cultural transformation out there.”

Partners In Leadership and the other 2015 Learning In Practice Award winners will be featured in a special report supplement to the December issue of Chief Learning Officer magazine.
