BJC Once Again Named LearningElite Organization by Chief Learning Officer Magazine

BJC has been selected among the finalists as a 2014 LearningElite organization by Chief Learning Officer magazine. The award recognizes organizations that demonstrate enterprisewide success through employee learning and development. The overall rankings will be announced March 30, 2014.

“It’s truly an honor for BJC and the Center for LifeLong Learning to be recognized once again among leading companies representing diverse industries for making learning and development a key part of our business strategy and culture,” says JoAnn Shaw, BJC vice president and chief learning officer. “BJC consistently demonstrates a commitment to learning with measurable results. We should be proud of the acknowledgement by our peers across the country of our commitment to continuous employee learning and the impact that has on BJC.”

In its fourth year, the LearningElite award program is a peer-based benchmarking initiative developed by chief learning officers and workforce development experts. Through a rigorous evaluation process, it assesses the scope and value of employee learning and development, recognizing excellence in five areas: learning strategy, learning impact, leadership commitment, learning execution and business performance results.

Within these five areas, the program further analyzes and validates the impact of organizational learning on productivity, engagement, innovation and business results. Other organizations being recognized are AT&T, Proctor and Gamble, UPS, Nationwide Insurance and Walgreens.

Chief Learning Officer magazine’s LearningElite program honors the best organizations for learning and development,” says Jeanne Bonzon, CLL learning and development director. “This robust ranking and benchmarking program recognizes organizations that employ exemplary workforce development strategies that deliver significant business results. The fact that BJC was selected speaks volumes.”

Last year, LearningElite ranked BJC 20th overall and first among health care organizations.
