Brandon Hall's Excellence Award Program is the most-longstanding recognition initiative for the corporate learning industry.
"Social learning is one of the most important trends in corporate learning today," said David Wentworth, senior analyst for Brandon Hall Group. "Almost 60% of the companies we surveyed are planning to include some type of collaborative solution in their corporate learning initiative." Wentworth's research is based on more than 600 surveys and executive interviews. The resulting report, titled "Relationship-Centered Learning," is slated for publication in February.
River, Triple Creek's software solution, is designed to create efficient, competency-based learning networks across an organization. Intended to complement a company's current talent management infrastructure, River offers an efficient way to make meaningful learning connections for a variety of purposes - such as support for learning programs and on-the-job performance, peer-to-peer and work team collaboration, employee development, leadership and high-potential coaching, and onboarding.
"We're very honored to receive the Brandon Hall award," said Randy Emelo, president and CEO of Triple Creek. "The award verifies years of hard work and our company's passionate belief in the value of enterprise knowledge sharing. We're proud to be recognized as a technology leader in this important market space."
River differs from other social tools in these key ways:
- Smart connection recommendations based on individuals' competencies, experience levels, availability, and other filtering options.
- Reports and dashboards to track employee adoption and use, organizational knowledge sharing activities, and competency weaknesses and strengths across the organization.
- Features to facilitate employee-initiated connections, manager-directed engagements for direct reports, and administrator-generated groups for various business and training initiatives.
River is used by companies across all industry segments. Clients include American Axle & Manufacturing, Australian National University, Bayer Corp., CVS Caremark, Daimler Trucks North America, Johnson Controls, Ken Blanchard Companies, McDonald's, National Park Service, and WhiteWave Foods.
