Allen is once, twice, five times a winner. Allen Communication Learning Services, authorities in improving human performance through custom training and learning, is the recipient of five Omni Intermedia Awards for Spring 2010.
“The Allen team extends our thanks to the Omni Intermedia voting committee,” said Allen CEO, Ron Zamir. “We’re grateful for this recognition. Allen’s design excellence covers multiple industries, but never compromises on the impact our training has to have on our partner organizations. Lastly, we must never forget that any award is a testament to the project managers, designers and technologists that make such quality of product possible.”
Allen competed in several categories, earning awards for courses in the mental health, pet care and sales industries.
Allen’s work with The Center for Practice Innovations (CPI) at the Research Foundation for Mental Hygiene (RFMH), along with the New York State Offices of Mental Health (OMH) and of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) on the Focus on Integrated Treatment (FIT) training program earned two silver awards in the Government, and Internal Communication categories. FIT is used by CPI, OMH, ASAS, RFMH, and addiction recovery professionals to effectively treat people coping with Co-Occurring Disorder (COD).
COD is the occurrence of multiple disorders, like bipolar illness and substance use disorder, in an individual. Traditionally, COD patients were ineffectually treated either for the mental disorder or the addiction. Mental health and addiction professionals are using this web-based training course to bridge the divide, learning combined COD treatment protocols. COD afflicts 5.6 million people annually.
Allen’s training program for PETCO won a bronze in the Internal Communication category. The web-based courses teach employees proficiency in humane treatment practices, habitat maintenance and health issues associated with aquatic life and companion animals. 80% of PETCO’s store associates that completed the courses reported higher confidence and competency working with or discussing companion animals and aquatic pets with customers.
Allen’s advanced selling skills training for Amway Global’s Independent Business Owners (IBO) took a bronze in the Educational category. Compiling Amway’s data, Allen constructed web-based and instructor-led courses for maintaining strong customer relationships; meeting customer needs; expanded product knowledge and getting referrals. Using skills acquired through these courses, IBO’s reported a 50 percent increase in average monthly revenue.
The fifth award was a bronze in the External Communication Category for Allen’s new interactive pricing guide.
