Company to Honor Customers for Success in Learning, Talent and Workforce Management 

Skillsoft, a global leader in learning and talent management, today announced a call for submissions for its annual Innovation Awards, which honor customers for addressing HR challenges and delivering outstanding value to their organizations using Skillsoft solutions. The awards will be presented during the company’s annual user conference, 2016 Global Skillsoft Perspectives, on May 9-12 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“The Innovation Awards recognize the best-in-class organizations that are going above and beyond to align business needs with development opportunities. These customers drive learning to the core of talent processes and provide business leaders with crucial insight they need to consistently maintain a competitive advantage amid ever-changing business challenges,” said Jerry Nine, chief operating officer at Skillsoft. “We look forward to honoring customers for their innovative ideas, powerful programs and exceptional leaders who are transforming the corporate landscape by leveraging Skillsoft products.”

Awards will be given in the following categories:

Talent Development Champion of the Year 
This award honors an organization’s HR or learning and development champion who has achieved exceptional and consistent success throughout the year. This individual shows remarkable skill in delivering a transformational program in part by leveraging Skillsoft solutions. In addition, this person serves as an ambassador for talent development and has used innovation and ingenuity in their programs to better his or her organization.

Program of the Year 
This award recognizes an organization that has developed and implemented a leading-edge program utilizing Skillsoft solutions with measurable impact on employees and the organization. Outstanding programs have clearly-defined challenges that require unique solutions to make the program a success. Award-winning programs not only feature transformative innovation, but also demonstrate business impact and cost savings across the organization.

Distinction in Workforce Excellence
This award is given to a program that achieves organizational distinction by creating efficiencies, demonstrating compliance and streamlining processes using SumTotal workforce management, SumTotal expense or SumTotal payroll products. Nominees present unique uses of the application(s) and an established ROI.

Thinking Big: Small and Medium Businesses
This award acknowledges an organization with fewer than 2,500 employees that has successfully leveraged Skillsoft products to achieve ambitious business goals and empower employees. Nominees in this category demonstrate how they adapt learning, talent or workforce solutions to the fast-paced and evolving landscape of a small and medium size business environment.

Empowering Continuous Talent Development
This award honors an organization that leverages the SumTotal Talent Expansion® suite to achieve success by effectively embedding development opportunities into employee workflows to support their business needs. By leveraging the combined solution set, nominees empower employees to take charge of their professional development, promote knowledge sharing, drive performance and ensure succession.

Compliance and Ethics Excellence 
This award recognizes an organization that has taken steps to mitigate risks while promoting ethical behavior amongst employees. The organization cultivates an ethical culture within a rich learning environment where training is an integral part of the overall compliance program. Employees are trained to address uncertainty while working together to achieve business objectives.

Creating an Impact
These awards recognize organizations that develop and implement best-in-class integrated learning or talent programs that demonstrate strong results. Programs feature innovation to overcome challenges and realize success. Five winning customers will be selected for each of the following subject areas:

  1. Higher Education: This award honors a college or university with a noteworthy talent development initiative.
  2. Government and Nonprofit: This award recognizes an outstanding government agency or nonprofit.
  3. Leadership Development: This award is given to an organization that effectively addresses leadership development.
  4. IT and Technical Skills Development: This award honors a company with a comprehensive IT training program.
