Spoke Wins Two 2017 Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards
January 3, 2018
We’re thrilled to announce Spoke, our next-generation social LMS, won two highly-coveted 2017 Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards in Technology, including:
- Gold for Best Advance in Rewards and Recognition Technology, and
- Bronze for Best Advance in Learning Management Technology.
The awards recognize two innovative features we added to Spoke in 2017 – Spoke News and Spoke Rewards.
Enterprise organizations using Spoke have measured a 5X increase in training completion and a 2.5X increase in non-required activity since introducing these two new features.
Spoke News helps training leaders improve the execution of training initiatives by using targeted and engaging news articles, notifications, and email newsletters to announce new training content, share company updates, and keep their teams in the know.
Spoke Rewards allows employees to earn and redeem Spoke Coins for real-world rewards for completing their assigned training.
“We’re thrilled to add these awards to our growing trophy case,” said Brian Leach, Unboxed’s CEO. “Brandon Hall has long been viewed as the industry experts when it comes to researching the human capital management space, and it’s exciting to receive their recognition for the success our clients are experiencing using our innovative training and technology.”
