Bridgepoint Education was one of the honorees at the 2015 LearningElite Awards held on April 12 in Miami, Fla. Presented by Chief Learning Officer magazine, the LearningElite Awards honor organizations that are leaders in the field of learning and development.
The LearningElite Award is the only peer-reviewed benchmarking program developed in collaboration with chief learning officers and senior workforce development practitioners. It applies rigorous statistical analysis to evaluating the learning and development services that companies provide and ranks the organizations based upon business impact as well as innovation and execution. Bridgepoint Education was named a Gold LearningElite organization.
“This is the second year in a row that we’ve been recognized for this prestigious award and it speaks to the commitment of Bridgepoint’s Learning & Development team to develop and execute a successful learning strategy for the enterprise,” said Beckie Magnuson, associate vice president of Learning & Development at Bridgepoint Education. “In addition, our LEAP Program was specifically cited for its strong foundation built on the core leadership competencies needed by today’s leaders.”
In the summary for the LearningElite winners, the selection committee acknowledged Bridgepoint’s Leadership Excellence Achievement Program (LEAP) for “improving retention and engagement of leaders in the organization while lowering employee attrition and improving student success.”
