Training Magazine unveiled the winners of the 2021 Training Magazine Network Choice Awards, a crowd-sourced vendor awards program that recognizes outstanding training products and solutions.
The Training Magazine Network Choice Awards is Training’s crowd-sourced awards program, sponsored by Training magazine. The opportunity to cast a vote is annually promoted to Training Magazine Network’s member network community, on the vendor partners that they find to provide the most effective tools and solutions for their work, in six (6) categories:
- Authoring Tools
- Content Development/Program Development
- Leadership Development
- Learning Portal/LMS
- Measurement, Testing and Assessment
“Our studios strive year after year to be the most inventive, creative, learning science-based designers and developers of great learning experiences. These recognitions from our expert peers are especially meaningful and motivate us to achieve even more in the coming years.”
- Dr. Michael Allen, Founder and CEO
An alphabetical list in each of the six categories was compiled based on Training magazine and Training Magazine Network’s own industry data and research and included vendor companies that both have and have not done business or partnered with Training magazine and its affiliates. Voters also had the opportunity to enter a preferred vendor product or solution if the tool they wished to rank was not listed. The voting was held online June 1-September 30, 2020. Some 6,441 votes were cast by 2,946 unique respondents for 459 companies. Participants could submit a survey ballot in as many of the six categories as were applicable to them, but only one ballot per voter per category was permitted; multiple employees from the same company were permitted to vote. Winners were determined by a combination of the total number of votes received and an average weighted score based on effectiveness. Because of this determination, there is not a set number of winners per category.
Training Magazine Network is an incredible community of dedicated, collaborative Learning and Development (L&D) professionals, and we thank all those who voted for sharing their knowledge and experience. Being able to tap into that expertise to identify effective vendor tools and solutions for training is a huge advantage—especially during these continued challenging times. And we are proud to recognize the innovation, responsiveness, and agility of the 2021 Training magazine Network winners. Congratulations!
- Lorri Freifeld, Training Magazine Editor and Publisher
It's exciting to see the trend of thousands of new members joining Training Magazine Network every month—and especially so when we note their participation in our Choice Awards program. The whole community benefits when they share their experience in using a variety of vendor solutions.
