2 October 2012

Skillsoft, an innovative pioneer in the field of learning who provides cloud-based learning solutions for its customers worldwide, announced that prestigious business magazine, Chief Learning Officer (CLO), selected the company as the gold winner in Excellence in Social Learning for the Chief Learning Officer Learning in Practice Awards.

Skillsoft was honored for its work incorporating a social learning strategy through the Skillsoft inGenius™ social learning platform for TELUS, a leading national telecommunications company. This recognition further exemplifies Skillsoft's role as a pioneer in the field of learning with a long history of innovation. "Skillsoft is always humbled when we are awarded such prestigious awards and the Excellence in Social Learning gold winner is no exception," said Skillsoft Asia Pacific's Vice President and Managing Director, Glenn Nott.

"Receiving formal acknowledgement on our commitment to providing innovative, dynamic and relevant learning solutions not only excites the entire Skillsoft team, but also injects more determination in sustaining that high level of cloud-based learning to all customers. 

Our work with TELUS is a great example of how an organisation can benefit from social learning, by fostering a collaborative spirit across the entire organisation."

Skillsoft's inGenius social learning platform has redefined the learning experience at TELUS by providing users with a virtual community to interact, engage, share and learn.

Users who participate in online training sessions can keep the dialogue going with colleagues and instructors before, during and after training sessions. By implementing Skillsoft inGenius, TELUS has expanded the traditional classroom, creating a culture of collaboration and engagement across multiple offices, job families and teams.

"Skillsoft inGenius provides TELUS with a framework for connecting team members with similar learning interests, eliminating the feeling of ‘mandatory' learning," said Benny Ramos, Senior Career Consultant, TELUS.

"We are ecstatic with the positive impact that inGenius offers TELUS as it encourages our employees to make the most of their learning experiences through collaboration in an informal, social learning community."

Skillsoft inGenius enables employees to connect in an informal, yet effective way that combines the social tools that employees use on a regular basis with learning tools.

It extends the value of trusted, expert information by providing opportunities for a company's own employees to contribute their knowledge and expertise in ways that build upon learning culture, strengthen ties and forge collaborative relationships among groups and individuals that might not otherwise interact.
