CLO - December 2010 - (Page 41)
BY CHIEF LEARNING OFFICER EDITORIAL STAFF ow in their seventh year, the Learning In Practice Awards were created by the editors of Chief Learning Officer magazine to recognize learning leaders and qualified learning providers that have made a tangible and demonstrable impact on organizations through a combination of outstanding leadership, vision, business acumen and strategic alignment. The awards program has grown in participation and competition every year. This year’s winners were selected from more than 230 nominations by a panel of judges composed of past winners and industry leaders. Awards were presented to the three top entrants — gold, silver and bronze — in more than a dozen categories. The industry’s top individual award, the CLO of the Year, was given to the learning executive without peer in developing learning strategies, marshaling and managing resources and achieving distinctive organizational impact. Awards also were given to senior learning practitioners in six additional categories in two divisions: Division 1 for companies with more than 10,000 employees and Division 2 for companies with fewer than 10,000 employees. Learning providers were recognized for their service to learning practitioners in eight categories, ranging from academic partnerships to e-learning and social learning. Winners received their awards at a special ceremony in September at the Fall 2010 Chief Learning Officer Symposium at The Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel in California.
