Elliott Group And Expertus Win Silver BHG Award

Santa Clara, CA – Oct. 25, 2017 – Elliott Group, a global leader in the design, manufacture and service of critical turbomachinery, and Expertus won the Silver Award for Excellence in the Best Use of Blended Learning category.

Elliott Group uses the ExpertusONE LMS to provide business-critical onboarding training for managers located around the world.

“By offering self-paced vILT and mobile learning courses through ExpertusONE, managers can fit in training when and where it is most convenient. It also gives managers who speak English as a second language more time to review key material,” Ben Butina, Elliot Group’s Sr. Manager, Global Training & Development, said. “The result is a reduction in the average training start time from 3.5 months to 1 week, so Elliott managers are more productive, faster.”

The blended learning program’s ease of access also resulted in 100% enrollment by newly hired or promoted managers, and a 52% voluntary program completion rate by established managers. Read the full case study here.

“Elliott Group has offices around the world, so it was very time-consuming and expensive for them to onboard new managers using a traditional instructor-led training program,” explained Ramesh Ramani, Expertus’ CEO. “However, with the ExpertusONE LMS, Elliott was able to easily add virtual instructor-led training (vILT) and mobile learning to their classroom-based training for an award-winning onboarding program that trained more managers, at a lower cost and with improved training retention and execution. We’re honored to be a part of their success!”

The 2017 award entries were evaluated by a panel of independent industry experts, Brandon Hall Group analysts and executives, and were based on the following criteria: fit the need, program design, functionality, innovation and overall measurable benefits.

Brandon Hall Group’s CEO Mike Cooke summarized this year’s winners, including Expertus and Elliot Group, as “executives and directors of world-class organizations who have done the hard work necessary to drive business results through learning.”
