In March 2016, Area9 carried out a case study which recognized Hitachi Data Systems (HDS), the multi-billion dollar global IT data and information company, for its strategic decision to adopt Area9 Learning’s innovative platform for all its online training. We are delighted to announce that the learning industry’s top associations and analysts feel the same way.
The Association for Talent Development (ATD), the world’s largest professional membership association that supports those who develop the knowledge, skills, and performance improvement of employees and organizations, recognized HDS Academy as a 2016 BEST award winner. HDS Academy was recognized for the work done in transforming the delivery of training in innovative ways through training that adapts to the learners needs.
The Chief Learning Officer Learning in Practice awards recognized HDS Academy for demonstrating excellence in the design and delivery of employee development including programs built around the Area9 adaptive solution.
Brandon Hall Group’s Excellence Award Program is often referred to as the “Academy Awards” by learning, talent, and business executives. It recognizes the best organizations that have successfully developed and deployed programs, strategies, modalities, processes, systems, and tools that have achieved measurable results. John Kostek from HDS Academy received the bronze award in the Emerging Stars category for the work done designing a development program that included Area9’s adaptive solution as a core component.
“We are thrilled to earn these awards for our innovative approach to generating business value,” said Terri Casady, Senior Director of HDS Academy. “Area9’s platform transformed how we design learning, how our employees learn, and dramatically reduced the time employees needed to achieve mastery.”
