London, UKLearning News5app

5app, the learning platform that delivers rapid knowledge transfer, won a Silver Brandon Hall Group Excellence Award alongside customer Greystar.

5app and Greystar won their award in the Best Advance in Learning in the Flow of Work category as part of the Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards HCM Program.

This project saw Greystar introducing a game-changing Learning Academies architecture to its hugely successful Greystar Business School, which won a Gold Brandon Hall Group award in 2020.

Entries were evaluated by a panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group analysts, and executives based on the following criteria:

  • Alignment to their business need and environment
  • Program design, functionality and delivery
  • Adoption, integration, user experience, innovation and creativity
  • Overall effectiveness, impact, and measurable benefits

Learning Academies give Greystar a quick, repeatable way to roll out role-, location- or function-specific content for employees. They make it significantly easier to get the right content to the right people at the right time, without having to trawl through the vast amount of content on Greystar’s learning and comms platform.

Combining learning and comms in a single, user-friendly platform ensures that everyone gets exactly what they need, when they need it, resulting in a 328% increase in learner engagement, a 57% improvement in knowledge and a 15% increase in customer satisfaction. 

“This award is a testament to the hugely successful ongoing collaboration between 5app and Greystar,” said Stuart Mason, CEO of 5app. “It recognises our ability to help employees quickly and easily access the answers they need while they’re working, while going one step further by personalising content to specific roles, functions and geographies. Congratulations to all the winners of these prestigious awards!”

“Our award winners are relentless in their pursuit of excellence,” said Brandon Hall Group Chief Executive Officer Mike Cooke. “We have received some of the most innovative use of HCM strategy that we have seen in the last 30 years, and in most cases, technology and collaboration across departments have helped them achieve amazing business results.”
