John Flores, Digital Wake’s Managing Partner, said, “We are very proud of the work our team put into this training solution for our client, Flourish Agenda. They provided us with instructor-led content and redesigned it to be a self-paced online course that uses a variety of learning strategies, including animated storytelling, videos, interactive activities, and open-ended self-reflection questions. We then implemented the training in a custom Learning Management Solution that allows them a wide range of options.”
“Technology has never been more critical for success in human capital management than it is today. We were thrilled to see many new innovations in all areas, but especially related to the future of work,” said Brandon Hall Group Chief Operating Officer and awards program head Rachel Cooke. “Thanks to the many innovations from our Excellence in Technology winners, organizations have many compelling options as they make important decisions on how to leverage technology to drive their people strategies.”
Michael Bound, project manager for this effort, said, “We enjoyed a strong relationship with Flourish Agenda during this process that allowed our team to take the rich content Flourish Agenda provided and create a product of which we are very proud. The feedback from the learners has been rewarding as well.”
This is the second Brandon Hall Group award Digital Wake has won in the last two years. In 2019, Digital Wake won a silver award for Excellence in Corporate Initiatives.
