As corporations transition 100% of their training programs online, collaborative online learning is taking hold as a widespread and effective means for powering critical training initiatives to improve business outcomes in a distributed work environment. NovoEd’s award-winning collaborative learning platform has emerged as the preeminent solution in this regard, as its enterprise business clients have more than tripled year-over-year due to increased demand as the workforce remains remote amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“As the majority of our clients continue to work from home, they have found that a streamlined, asynchronous and collaborative learning experience is critical to deliver the powerful, engaging online learning needed to drive measurable business outcomes,” said Scott Kinney, CEO of NovoEd. “Our recent recognition from Brandon Hall Group, Chief Learning Officer and Training Industry prove that our collaborative learning platform is cutting edge and provides immense value for our customers and their employees.”
NovoEd was awarded a Brandon Hall Group silver award for excellence in Innovative Leadership for its partnership with CEMEX. Powered by NovoEd, the CEMEX CONNECT online leadership development program provides new managers with critical, foundational knowledge that drives value across the entire organization, connecting learners virtually across functional and geographic areas to build leadership capabilities.
Brandon Hall Group award entries were evaluated by a panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group analysts and executives based upon the following criteria: fit the need, design of the program, functionality, innovation and overall measurable benefits.
“Over the past five years, in alignment with our digital transformation effort, we have challenged our employees to develop a growth mindset and enhance their skills for their jobs of today, while also preparing for their jobs of tomorrow,” said Claudia de la Torre Foglio, Head of Leadership Development Programs, CEMEX. “CEMEX CONNECT provides managers with the resources, tools and skills they need to build connections, trust and engagement within and between teams, while also driving greater purpose and business results. NovoEd’s collaborative online learning platform and learning experience design allowed us to develop this program with the learner in mind, and effectively scale it across our organization.”
NovoEd was also named a finalist in the Excellence in E-Learning category in Chief Learning Officer’s 2020 Learning in Practice Awards. Established in 2003, this awards program recognizes learning leaders who have demonstrated excellence in the design and delivery of employee development programs. Winners will be announced on Tuesday, October 20 during a virtual awards ceremony at CLO’s Virtual Fall Symposium.
Finally, Training Industry also named NovoEd to its 2020 Top Learning Experience Platform (LXP) list, recognizing NovoEd as an emerging company in the learning technologies market. Selection to the list was based on the value of platform features and capabilities, quality of analytics and reporting, company size and growth potential, and strength of clients and geographic reach. As the leading research and information resource for corporate learning leaders, Training Industry prepares the Top 20 report on critical sectors of the corporate training marketplace each year to better inform professionals about the best and most innovative providers of training services and technologies.
