The Next Learning! 100 Call for Applications
The Learning! 100 Award program has a solid research-based approach that offers firms a level playing field despite size, and post-awards learning opportunities to improve firm rankings in subsequent years. Learning! 100 applicants were evaluated across three criteria: Aberdeen Group’s Best-in-Class Learning & Development assessment, EMG’s Learning Culture index, and overall organizational performance. Each submission received a rating for each section, and scores were totaled to determine the Learning! 100.
Learning! 100 Award 2012 applications open September 1, 2011 and close December 1, 2011. Finalists will be notified January 15, 2012. The Learning! 100 will be named in March and honored at a spring Enterprise Learning! Summit Awards Reception.
