We are honored to be recognized by the Brandon Hall Group with the 2016 Excellence in Technology bronze award for “Best Advance in Social Learning Technology”!

A panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, and Brandon Hall Group senior analysts and executives evaluated the the work done by EdCast to fulfill the informal learning objectives for HP Life in consideration for this award.

“We congratulate our Technology Award winners, and also thank them for leading the way in designing and utilizing technologies that empower organizations to enhance – and in some cases transform – their organizations,” said Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program.

“Our research shows that Human Capital Management technology is a primary driver of innovation, and our award-winning organizations serve as models of success,” said Brandon Hall Group CEO Mike Cooke. “Another significant finding of our research is the importance of optimizing the employee experience as a driver of engagement and retention.”
