Instilled Honored With An eLearning Industry Award

Franklin, Tennessee – 5 September 2019 – Less than 4 months after launch, Instilled, a learning experience platform (LXP) created with efficiency in mind, has won its first award. Instilled, along with partner Johnson Controls International (JCI), won a coveted 2019 Brandon Hall Group bronze award for excellence in the Best Use of Performance Support category.

Instilled and JCI’s win was announced at the end of August, just three months and one week after a successful launch. "Our relationship with JCI has been a true partnership that has resulted in a change of the culture of learning that benefits both the company and the learners," said Jeff Fissel, Instilled’s VP of Solutions.

Johnson Controls is a global industrial leader with an annual revenue of around $30 billion. The organization saw a need for SME-led video learning to train its network of around 120,000 employees in 2,000 locations worldwide, as well as provide them with on-demand information that is easily searchable and highly social.

Johnson Controls engaged Instilled in May 2017 to create uLearn, their in-house video learning platform. A key feature JCI was looking for was the ability to have built-in social learning capabilities on all their video content.

"The key metric that stands out to me is the number of comments within the 3,200 videos. Currently, there are 2,900 comments within videos. This shows that viewers are fully engaged with the video content as opposed to it being just a one-way push of information,” commented Shrawan Kumar, Senior Learning Technologist at JCI.

“Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards Program has recognized leading organizations for the past 20+ years for the latest trends in Human Capital Management,” said Rachel Cooke, Brandon Hall Group COO, and leader of the HCM Excellence Awards Program. “The initiatives that were honored are not only innovative but fit the unique needs of the business and create truly remarkable success stories.”

Award entries were evaluated by a panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group analysts and executives based upon the following criteria:

  • fit the need
  • design of the program
  • functionality
  • innovation
  • overall measurable benefits.

Excellence Awards winners will be honored at Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Excellence Conference, February 4-6, 2020, at the Hilton West Palm Beach, Florida. Select winners also will serve as presenters in breakout sessions, sharing their leading practices during the conference.

“The HCM Excellence Awards recognize programs that measurably benefit organizations,” said Mike Cooke, Brandon Hall Group CEO. “Many human capital management departments are unable to confirm that their initiatives help the business’s bottom line. Because we focus on measurable benefits, our awards program is universally recognized and highly prestigious.”
