SweetRush Wins Excellence in Blended Technology CLO award

The award recognizes an expanding and evolving learning program for Bridgestone that leverages several technology-based modalities, including e-learning, mobile learning, and gamification.

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., October 12, 2015 – Chief Learning Officer magazine, published by Human Capital Media (HCM), recently announced the winners of its Learning In Practice awards, and SweetRush was honored as a winner for the second year in a row, earning a silver award in the Excellence in Blended Technology category.

The Learning In Practice Excellence in Blended Technology award recognizes SweetRush for deploying “a rich mix of technology tools” in support of its client Bridgestone’s learning program for extended enterprise sales associates and delivering “engaging learning combining multiple modalities,” in this case, e-learning, mobile learning, video, and gamification.

“I think it’s pretty rare for Chief Learning Officer to award the same learning program two years in a row,” said SweetRush Chairman Arturo Schwartzberg. “It really underscores the strong collaborations and long-term relationships we build with clients. We don’t rest on our laurels… we constantly bring new ideas and help our clients refine, improve, and expand their offerings to learners.”

“The Learning In Practice awards celebrate the truly outstanding work of practitioners in the L&D field,” said Mike Prokopeak, editor in chief of HCM. “The energy, passion, commitment, and vision they bring to their work every day is an invaluable asset to their organizations and an inspiration to the rest of the industry.”

The Learning in Practice awards were presented at the Fall 2015 CLO Symposium at the Hyatt Regency Los Pines Resort & Spa. The full list of winners can be found on the CLO website.
