Xyleme and Rogers Communications Together Win Brandon Hall’s 2017 Bronze Award in Best Advance in Learning Technology Implementation

Xyleme and Rogers Communications is elated to win the Brandon Hall 2017 Bronze Award in Best Advance in Learning Technology Implementation.

Xyleme and Rogers Communications are proud to win the Brandon Hall 2017 Bronze Award in Best Advance in Learning Technology Implementation. Rogers Communications teamed with Xyleme to better manage nearly 4,000 courses it delivers to over 40,000 learners in the field, their offices and retail outlets. Reducing the cost to create and deliver courses, as well as being able to reuse content and more quickly update and deliver new courses were key results.

The Brandon Hall Excellence Awards recognize leading organizations that have successfully deployed programs, strategies, modalities, processes, systems, and tools that have achieved measurable results. Award entries are 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, and overall measurable benefits.

“We are very pleased to have our work with the Rogers team recognized. The Rogers Communications learning team has worked closely with Xyleme to really revolutionize how they create and distribute content. This has been exciting to see,” comments Xyleme CEO Greg Schottland.

The awards were presented by Brandon Hall on September 7th 2017. The winners are listed at http://www.brandonhall.com/excellenceawards/past-winners.php

Rogers Communications is Canada’s largest provider of wireless communications services and a leading provider of cable television, high-speed Internet, information technology, and telephony services to consumers and businesses. With a learning audience of over 30,000 they were constantly challenged with keeping content and programs up to date.

The business case for implementing Xyleme centered around efficiency, effectiveness and a desire to bring all course development in-house.

Specific goals were:

  • Improving the process of developing and maintaining courses to become agile and less time consuming
  • Being able to easily brand content
  • Being able to deliver content in English and French cost effectively
  • Working more efficiently with clients and stakeholders

After four months in production using Xyleme’s LCMS, 8 out of 10 designers felt they could achieve more in less time. Their fear of losing creativity was replaced by a realization that they were working much more efficiently and producing higher content faster. Continued productivity gains of 130% are expected over the next three years as course output is projected to go from 377 to 894 learning hours per year.

“Excellence Award winners symbolize the power and impact that Human Capital Management practices can have on a business or on any organization,” said Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program. “Many organizations can have great HCM initiatives, but the standard of excellence only applies for organizations whose HCM practices truly benefit the business. That’s what the Excellence Awards program stands for, and that is what Brandon Hall Group stands for.”

Excellence Award winners will be honored at Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Excellence Conference January 31 – February 2, 2018, at the PGA National Resort in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Selected winners also will serve as presenters in the more than 20 breakout sessions during the 3½-day event.
