The Learning Technologies Awards celebrate excellence in learning technology across the private, public and third sectors. The 2018 awards shortlist unveiled yesterday includes UpsideLMS and ISS’ joint entry amongst the 185 shortlisted entries across 22 categories. Called ‘Transforming Employee L&D of a Large Global Workforce with an LMS’ the entry has made it to the final round in the ‘Best International Learning Platform Implementation’ category.
The shortlisted entry outlines and elaborates how ISS, a global facility services provider with operations in 70 countries, transformed its employee L&D by creating a learning ecosystem, called 'MyLearning', powered by UpsideLMS. It also demonstrates how ISS’s vision to make the training management of its geographically dispersed, multi-lingual workforce simple and centralised with an ability to cater to the individual needs of each country was successfully achieved through UpsideLMS's features, user-friendly UI, cloud technologies and integration with other systems to offer a comprehensive platform with 53 portals in 20+ languages and 350,000+ users.
The 400 entries for Learning Technologies 2018 Awards spanned organisations from 24 different countries, encompassing the strength and breadth of learning technologies. These were judged by an independent panel of L&D professionals organised by the eLearning Network based on various criteria (as per the Category) to whittle down to the 185-strong shortlist.
The LT Awards Shortlist page quotes that, “These awards recognise the commitment, enthusiasm and passion for learning technologies across the world, and to be to be shortlisted is an achievement to be proud of.”
Echoing this is UpsideLMS’ Director, Amit Gautam. He says, “To have been shortlisted in the UK’s and the world’s prestigious learn-tech awards is great by itself. But to have done it with one of your biggest clients is completely out of this world! I am grateful to ISS for extending its support to us throughout the submission process and for being such an amazing client!”
As a part of the next stage in the awarding process, UpsideLMS and ISS will be presenting online to the judges on 5th October.
