BankWest’s Learning and Development department has been named a LearningElite winner by Chief Learning Officer magazine. The LearningElite Award Program recognizes organizations with exemplary learning and development strategies and best practices.
“Learning and development has evolved at a rapid pace amid the lightning speed of change in our world. It is incredible to see what these organizations have achieved in fostering agile and adaptable learning cultures,” said Ashley St. John, chief content officer and editor-in-chief for Chief Learning Officer. “It is an honor to recognize the accomplishments and successes of these leaders, teams and organizations.”
In order to qualify for LearningElite status, organizations must succeed in scoring above the qualifying benchmark in five key performance areas critical to L&D: learning strategy, leadership commitment, learning execution, learning impact and business performance results.
The Chief Learning Officer’s LearningElite program is a prestigious platform that pays tribute to the finest organizations in the realm of learning and development. For over a decade, this comprehensive, peer-reviewed ranking and benchmarking initiative has celebrated organizations that employ exemplary workforce development strategies, yielding substantial and tangible business results.
Guided by a consortium of chief learning officers and seasoned learning and development experts, the LearningElite program employs best practices in evaluation to rank organizations based on their impact, size, and industries served. It evaluates various aspects of learning and development, recognizing individual companies for their excellence in areas such as leadership development, adept use of technology, executive endorsement, and the creation and delivery of exceptional content, among others.
“BankWest has a deep commitment to equipping our staff with the knowledge and skills necessary to excel in their roles. This recognition serves as a testament to BankWest’s dedication to learning and development and its alignment with best practices and strategies in this field,” explains Becky Burke, Vice President of Learning & Strategic Development for BankWest. “Being recognized alongside a diverse group of organizations, ranging from global corporations to fellow small and agile teams, is truly an honor.”
