Every year, the LearningElite Awards program honors the best organizations in learning and development. The 54 organizations being recognized this year are no exception to the champions of workforce learning design, delivery and impact we see every year in this program.

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. Each organization is scored and ranked Gold, Silver or Bronze based on their score relative to the benchmark. Seven Editor’s Choice awards are also given out each year: one for each of the five LearningElite dimensions, one for Best Midsize Company and one for Best Small Company.

This year’s Organization of the Year, ADP Inc., joins Verizon and AT&T in the LearningElite Winner’s Circle, which is the organization of previous No 1s. The Organization of the Year is part of the Winner’s Circle for three years. Leaving the Winner’s Circle this year is Nationwide. Winner’s Circle organizations may participate in the benchmarking portion of the LearningElite program, but they are not eligible for banding or ranking. After three years, the organization may once again participate.

The LearningElite Awards program was created in 2011 under the watchful guidance of chief learning officers and senior L&D practitioners. Now in its 12th year, the program continues to use best practice in evaluation to rank the top organizations based on their impact, size and industries served.

Congratulations to all the 2022 winners!
