Chicago, June 27, 2014 — The 2014 LearningElite Best Practices and Benchmarking Report was released today by Human Capital Media Group (HCM), publisher of Chief Learning Officer magazine. The report details the results of the magazine’s latest benchmarking program, widely recognized as the industry’s most meaningful and comprehensive standard for effective learning and development (L&D) practices.
A valuable reference both for organizations attaining LearningElite status this year and for enterprises that aspire to this prestigious ranking, the report provides an inside look at the world’s top L&D organizations, as well as rigorous analysis of the L&D value chain and its link to successful business results.
This year’s report features key details and demographics about the 60 organizations named to the 2014 LearningElite, including their size, position in the rankings, L&D budget and what distinguishes their learning initiatives. It also contains a research-informed profile that illustrates what an average LearningElite organization looks like and what it does when faced with learning challenges.
Of particular interest and value is the report’s review of innovative strategies and practices implemented by the top elite organizations. It offers actionable information for companies looking to improve L&D impact and create a quality learning function capable of contributing significant value.
In addition, the report provides organizations that want to pursue or maintain LearningElite status access to the application and judging rubric. Companies can use this information to determine if their organization deserves to be among the learning industry’s elite ranks and to get a jump-start on preparing for the 2015 LearningElite benchmarking.
“More than just an opportunity for organizations to be recognized for outstanding L&D outcomes, the LearningElite allows enterprises to quantify their progress toward making strong workforce development a business driver and competitive differentiator,” said Sarah Kimmel, HCM’s director of research and advisory services. “A large part of its value lies in not only analyzing performance metrics but also turning the data into insights. The LearningElite report helps companies understand how their learning initiatives compare to the best of the best, enables them to identify areas for improvement and gives them an inspiring blueprint for achieving excellence.”
According to Norm Kamikow, president and editor-in-chief of Human Capital Media Group, a record-breaking number of enterprises submitted applications for 2014 — “a significant indication of the LearningElite’s growing importance and stature as the industry’s most valuable benchmarking tool.”
