Wilson Learning Worldwide won a coveted Brandon Hall Group Technology Bronze award for excellence in the Best Advance in Unique Sales Enablement Technology category. This award recognized Wilson Learning, a global provider of Human Performance Improvement solutions, for its innovative Learning Transfer System. By using a push-pull approach, Wilson Learning’s Learning Transfer System takes program participants through a continuous learning process to ensure more of what is learned is reflected and used on the job. The system includes reinforcement tools, a sales enablement portal, micro-learning modules, manager involvement tools, and an impact evaluation.

“Our goal has always been to ensure individuals get the most from their learning and companies achieve the business results they expect from their investment in training initiatives. Our intention was to create a truly integrated extended learning system that provides a seamless flow of information, knowledge and skills, reinforcement, manager coaching, and application that are essential to impact business. We are honored to receive this recognition as it acknowledges the energy, organizational resources, and commitment we have dedicated to creating this learning approach.” said Ed Emde, President, Wilson Learning Corporation.

Dr. Michael Leimbach, Wilson Learning Worldwide’s Vice President of Global R&D, adds, “In our industry, so much technology is focused on the administration and tracking of learning; we wanted to harness the power of technology to support the learner—to put them more in control of their learning and their success.”
