The Gold Trailblazer Award showcases learning executives who have either launched or completely overhauled existing workforce development initiatives in the past year. ABC earned the award in the division for businesses with under 10,000 employees for demonstrating that “learning is a process not a one-time event” with the launching of ABC University. 

Chief Learning Officer’s annual awards recognize outstanding enterprise education leaders, departments, and vendors who have developed and implemented exemplary learning and development programs that produce measurable results for their companies. Awards were presented in more than 16 categories, including business impact, collaboration, global learning, innovation, strategy, technology, trailblazer, academic partnerships, blended technology, community service, learning content, e-learning, gaming and simulations, and social learning.
