The Elearning! Media Group has named Scripps Health one of the 60 best corporations in the nation for learning and development programs; ranking number 10 on the 2013 corporate list. Scripps has been honored three years in a row for outstanding learning performance, and was the only health care system recognized out of the top 10.
Scripps was recognized for advancing innovation through new learning programs that support a care management redesign for improved patient care delivery. Last year, Scripps invested $30 million in employee learning and development.
“Scripps is committed to providing programs and resources that promote ongoing development at every stage of our employees’ career life cycles,” said Vic Buzachero, corporate senior vice president of innovation, human resources and performance management for Scripps. “We invest in learning for employees so they can acquire or refine the skills needed to succeed in today’s rapidly changing health care environment.”
The Learning! 100 Award program, instituted by Elearning! Media Group, is in its third year recognizing 100 organizations in the corporate and public sectors for their best-in-class learning and development programs. Award recipients were selected based on outstanding learning culture, innovation or collaboration that drives performance. Honorees represent all industries and organization sizes.
The Learning! 100 Award program has a research-based approach that offers firms a level playing field despite size, and many post-awards learning opportunities to share their knowledge. Learning! 100 applicants were evaluated across three criteria: Aberdeen Group’s Best-in-Class Learning & Development assessment, EMG’s Learning Culture index, and overall organizational performance. Each submission received a rating for each section and scores were totaled to identify the top 100. The Learning! 100 ranking was determined by overall performance and the impact of the nominees’ learning leadership.
