Dell has been shortlisted for the 2nd year in a row for some awesome training awards. The Learning Awards 2014 hosted by The Learning and Performance Institute recognizes outstanding examples of high standards, best practice, innovation and excellence in Learning and Development.  We’re really excited to tell you about the Learning Awards.  Here’s the categories we’ve been shortlisted in.

1.       CLO of the Year 

2.       Learning Professional of the Year

3.       Live Online Learning Facilitator of the Year

4.       Learning Team of the Year

5.       Internal Learning Solution of the Year

6.       Innovation in Learning

I had the opportunity to speak with Mark Miley
from Global Commercial Sales Training & Development, he has been nominated for Live Online Learning Facilitator of the Year, and he had this to say – ‘’I’m really excited about the award because it highlights such a great opportunity that we have as training professionals, Live Online learning or virtual instructor led training is a relatively new modality for our learners, and being nominated shows just how far Dell has come in our ability to train individuals showcasing industry best practice and innovation.  There are a number of cost saving benefits, rather than sending out trainers to be on location we have exponentially increased the number of people that can attend with the help of the internet, but it also provides our learners with access to training much quicker, in their own environment, so that has been a massive plus and has been illustrated in the feedback we have received.”

The awards ceremony will be held in London, England, on the 6th of February 2014.  Here are some pictures from last year’s event where we won 4 awards for Social Media, Internal Training Project, Innovation in Learning Services, and External Training project. 

Keep your fingers crossed for us for February!
