Award-winning leadership development programs

[Ed. Note: You can also read about our 2023 Training Magazine Network Choice Award in the category of Leadership Development!]

Insight Experience is thrilled to announce that we have received three coveted 2023 Brandon Hall Group awards that recognize our innovations and accomplishments in leadership development and business simulations. 

The Brandon Hall Groupan independent research and analyst firm, operates the largest and longest running awards program in Human Capital Management. The 2023 HCM Excellence Awards™ recognizes best practices for initiatives in Learning and Development, Talent Management, Leadership Development, Talent Acquisition, Human Resources, Sales Performance, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, and the Future of Work.

 

Insight Experience is the proud recipient of the following awards, each in the category of Learning and Development: 

 

  • The 2023 Gold Award for Best Unique or Innovative Learning and Development Program. 
  • The 2023 Silver Award for Best Use of Games or Simulations for Learning.
  • The 2023 Silver Award for Best Learning Program Supporting a Change Transformation Business Strategy. 

Award-winning business simulations

Our award-winning Gold entry for Best Unique or Innovative Learning and Development Program is centered on our Amazon Day 1 Director program, an offering designed to engage, align, develop and support Directors across businesses and geographies. The program focuses on the universal challenges of sustaining organizational culture and scaling for growth and has been delivered to more than 2,000 directors worldwide. The program combines perspectives from senior leaders, a custom-developed business simulation with live role-play interactions, and facilitated coaching and dialogue in small groups.

We also won a Silver Award for the same program for Best Use of Games or Simulations for Learning. In partnership with Amazon, Insight Experience custom-developed this business simulation for senior leaders as part of a three-day leadership program designed to reinforce leading at scale, highlight Amazon’s unique leadership culture in practice, and provide a foundation for experience-sharing cross functions, businesses, and geographies. The simulation was built to present real-life scenarios facing the target population; highlight the tensions and trade-offs facing Amazon leaders across all businesses; reinforce Amazon’s culture and Leadership Principles in practice; integrate live role plays with feedback; and create an engaging, robust learning experience with credible business results for the participants. 

 

Award-winning experiential learning

And our award-winning Silver entry for Best Learning Program Supporting a Change Transformation Business Strategy is for our Accelerate Program with Convoy. This is a two-day in-person intensive that enables managers to deepen their understanding and application of Convoy’s Manager Expectations. The program brings the Manager Expectations to life through a highly customized business simulation experience, individual and group reflection, and application activities to practice desired manager behaviors in challenging business situations. 

 

"Awards are wonderful recognition of Insight Experience's work to help leaders inspire their teams and deliver results," says Amanda Young Hickman, facilitator, designer, and founding partner at Insight Experience. "We are proud to build innovative leadership development programs and business simulations that enable leaders to learn about themselves, their skills, and their organizations. These Brandon Hall Group awards are confirmation that our learning experiences reasonate with leaders facing today's business challenges in a range of industries."

 

Says Brandon Hall Group Chief Operating Officer Rachel Cooke, HCM Excellence Awards program leader, "Excellence Award winners are shown to be organizations that truly value their employees and invest in them through their human capital management programs. These HCM programs have been validated as best in class for business value and the impact on the employees themselves."

  • Alignment to their business need and environment. 
  • Program design, functionality, and delivery. 
  • Adobption, integration, user experience, innovation, and creativity.
