Does your company proudly boast of awards won? Industry awards are important to both the companies that win them and the customers they serve. Awards act as a benchmark of sorts, demonstrating that a company is successful and has a solid track record.
Companies searching for new training partners would do well to check out industry awards. An award-winning partner provides more than just learning opportunities. It also provides a proven opportunity to impact the bottom line in a positive way.
Corporate Training with Purpose
Corporate training is an exercise implemented with goals in mind. In other words, there is a purpose behind training employees. That purpose might be safety. It might be improved productivity. Regardless of the reason or reasons, successful training almost always improves the bottom line. At least it should. But to what degree?
Training with a Partner
Corporate training programs fail to maximize the desired results for a whole host of reasons. One way to avoid underperforming is to work with a training partner. Better yet, working with an award-winning training partner can help you achieve the greatest training ROI. Salt Lake City’s Fulcrum Labs is a good example. Fulcrum Labs has won numerous performance-based awards including:
- Brandon Hall’s Best Results of a Learning Program award
- ATD’s 2020 Excellence in Practice award
- ABA’s coveted 2020 Stevie award for content optimization.
The company has also won numerous awards for its success as a learning partner. Why does any of this matter? Because industry awards mean something. They tell customers that Fulcrum Labs is a worthwhile learning partner whose technology, experience, and professionalism has led to tangible and measurable results.
What Industry Awards Mean
Industry awards are sponsored by trade groups, industry publications, media outlets, and so forth. While some awards can be won by encouraging massive voting, the most important and prestigious awards are won by performance. It is the performance-based awards that truly make a difference to a company’s bottom line.
Performance-based awards demonstrate a track record of meaningful results. That is exactly what a company wants in its training partner. Results are what make training purposeful. They are that which make training productive. Results are what generate the ROI on training dollars.
Industry awards also prove a degree of success with greater objectivity. They prove that a company has demonstrated its own success and its ability to help customers succeed as well. And in Fulcrum Labs’ case, the dozens of awards they have won demonstrate broader success in the training world.
Companies looking for training partners should also be looking at industry awards. But more than just the names of the awards themselves, companies should be looking at those award wins that most closely correlate to their own needs. The awards with the greatest value proposition are those most closely aligned with what a company is trying to accomplish with training.
Train to Become an Award-Winning Company
Partnering with an award-winning training provider impacts the bottom line by producing real, actual results. The right training partner can engage with team members, close knowledge gaps, and provide actionable data that will improve safety, increase productivity, and lead to better customer service, just to name a few things that will add to your bottom line. And working with an award-winning company takes the guesswork out of the equation. There’s a history of vetted and validated success.
Understand that your company can become an award-winning company as well. Through solid training and diligent implementation, your company can become the best in your industry. You just need a great training partner to get there.
