Babel Street Receives Gold and Silver Excellence in Learning Awards

Company received two awards from the Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Excellence Awards.

Babel Street, the world's leading AI-enabled data-to-knowledge company, and Babel University®, Babel Street’s virtual training hub, are proud to announce they have won two coveted Brandon Hall Group Gold and Silver awards for Excellence in Learning. 

Babel University received a gold award for the Best Customer Training Program for Babel Basics, which was recognized for its comprehensive curriculum reconfiguration. The team updated every module and course to enable Babel X® learners to practice their skills in an up-to-date and easy-to-use environment. Babel Street’s employee onboard training was also recognized as a silver winner for Best Advance in Custom Content. The Intergalactic Employee Onboarding program streamlined the new hire onboarding process to address challenges of onboarding remote staff and process standardization. 

“We are thrilled to be recognized by Brandon Hall Group as part of their HCM Excellence Awards,” said Mark McClure, Executive Vice President, Customer Experience. “Our Babel Street team passionately builds world-class training to ensure that our users and employees have the information and tools needed from day one to be successful in their efforts.” 

“The Babel Street Education team is so proud of our award-winning training available in our online university,” said Brittany Masty, Vice President of Education. “These awards for both our core platform training and employee onboarding show Babel Street’s commitment to cutting edge education for both customer and employees alike. Through fully self-paced courses we have enabled users through storytelling, gamification, and hands on learning.”

Entries were evaluated by a panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group analysts and executives based upon these criteria: fit the need, design of the program, functionality, innovation and overall measurable benefits. 

“Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards in 2021 provide much-needed and well-deserved recognition to organizations that went above and beyond to support their stakeholders during the unprecedented disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Brandon Hall Group COO and leader of the HCM Excellence Awards Program Rachel Cooke. “The awards provide validation of best practices in all areas of HCM at a time when they have never been more important to employers, employees and customers.”

Excellence Award winners are scheduled to be honored at Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Excellence Conference, Feb. 1-3, 2022, at the Hilton West Palm Beach, Florida. Select winners also will serve as presenters in breakout sessions, sharing their leading practices during the conference.
