CrossKnowledge received an esteemed Learning In Practice Award from Chief Learning Officer magazine. The company was awarded the Bronze Excellence in Blended Technology Award for its accomplishments in partnering with organizations to teach employees about key business issues.
The 2014 Learning In Practice Awards were announced on Sunday, October 5, at a special awards ceremony during the Fall 2014 Chief Learning Officer Symposium in Carlsbad, California, which attracted more than 300 global corporate learning executives to discuss long-term learning strategies for creating and sustaining high performance.
"Blended learning is, to us, such a crucial model for learning and development. With it, we're able to harness the power of online and digital mediums, while still holding onto important benefits that come with face-to-face teaching and interaction. We have been lucky to be able to partner with such great organizations that truly care about the professional development of their workforce, and look forward to working with them to continue to develop new tools and resources that will be at the forefront of blended learning." said Steve Fiehl, Chief Innovation Officer at CrossKnowledge.
"The Learning In Practice Awards recognize transformational and visionary leaders in enterprise education. This year, we received more than 200 nominations across 15 categories, and our panel of expert judges has determined these finalists are the industry leaders who truly champion innovation and transform it into value for their organizations." - said Mike Prokopeak, editor-in-chief of Human Capital Media, which publishes Chief Learning Officer magazine.
