Hemsley Fraser wins another global accolade for its digital learning hub
By: Hemsley Fraser
Each year, TrainingIndustry.com assesses the best providers of training services and technologies, in critical sectors of the training marketplace, to determine which suppliers have the expertise, experience and capabilities to deliver world-class assignments. Hemsley Fraser has been consistently ranked as a Top 20 provider of leadership training since 2010 and as a Top 20 training outsourcing provider since 2011.
This year, for the second time, TrainingIndustry.com has assessed companies that offer online learning libraries. Selection to the Top 20 list for this category was based on each provider's industry visibility; their innovation and impact; the breadth and quality of their courses and content; their company size and growth potential; the quality of their clients and their geographic reach.
"The companies included in the Top 20 Online Learning Library Companies List have demonstrated their value to professionals and their employers," said Ken Taylor, President of Training Industry, Inc. "Learners now expect access to the best content, from anywhere in the world, on their schedule, and these companies are exceeding expectations. This is our second annual Top 20 list for this sector, and we anticipate continued growth as more organisations turn to these providers for their learning content needs."
Danielle Draewell, Market Research Analyst at Training Industry, Inc, added: "These providers offer innovative ways to access exceptional digital content and allow their customers to choose from a diverse selection of courses that align with their training requirements."
Hemsley Fraser's Digital Hub comprises on-demand and expert-led assets, covering the most requested topics for learning in the workplace. It combines digital books, animations, infographics, quizzes, virtual instructor-led, and supporting face-to-face assets for the ultimate flexibility in course design, and the widest appeal to differing learning styles. The learning content is highly curated to ensure that all learning components work harmoniously in a 'mix and match' style. This design principle allows for client-specific programmes to be created quickly, whether completely 'off the shelf' or combined in a 'plug and play' manner with client-specific content.
Todd Turner, Chief Executive Officer of Hemsley Fraser, said: "We're delighted that the quality of our content and the innovative features of our digital learning hub have again been recognised in this prestigious global ranking. This accolade is particularly pleasing because Training Industry, Inc has consistently acknowledged the quality of our leadership training and training outsourcing services. This confirms our ability to provide a complete turnkey solution for our clients."
Lynsey Whitmarsh, Director of Innovation for Hemsley Fraser, said: "We've taken a unique approach to online learning content development, focusing on content curation over volume. And our 'playlist' functionality facilitates the creation of learning journeys comprised of multiple micro-learning assets, driving more sustained engagement. Using playlists, training can be 'pushed' to an entire organisation or segment of the workforce, making clear who has referred the training and why it is important. This helps with the two most critical aspects of 'engagement' - context and referral. Our Digital Hub now includes over 5,000 carefully curated learning assets, with many of the core learning modules now available in six languages."
