Here are the categories and a snippet of our entries:
Best Learning technologies project – UK commercial sector – AVADO and GSK
“As an innovative, global company on the cutting edge of healthcare and pharmaceuticals, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) needed a training partner with fresh ideas and exceptional digital execution capability. They selected AVADO to implement a global learning and development programme designed to enable GSK marketers to become truly customer-centric, capable of delivering intuitive, multichannel campaigns and wholly improving the customer experience.”
Best use of social and collaborative learning technologies – Arch Apprentices
“Squared Online and Hive Learning make a real difference to our digital marketing apprentices and their employers. We genuinely believe that the use of these platforms opens the doors for networking, idea generation and the broadening of the learning received within the actual apprenticeship. All whilst making it easy for learners to get involved and discover wider business insight outside of their current employer.”
Company of the year – AVADO
“In the last year, AVADO has worked with over 900 organisations to provide targeted learning solutions to meet defined business needs. Lead by organisational KPIs, our account-management and delivery teams have supported clients making organisational shifts; frequently exceeding their expectations. For example, 100% of Santander’s learners who increased their digital confidence, and GSK who are transforming their global marketing approach through our programme.”
