2The Brandon Hall Group Human Capital Management Excellence Awards are part of an annual program that offers recognition in one of 86 categories across seven program areas. The Excellence Awards feature two annual programs that recognize the best organizations that have successfully deployed programs, strategies, modalities, processes, systems, and tools that have achieved measurable results. The awards attract entrants from leading corporations around the world, as well as mid-market and smaller firms. An organization nominates its own program through an application process and the payment of an entry fee. Winning programs are determined by judges within the Brandon Hall Group using the following criteria: 1. The extent to which the program fits the needs of the organization; 2. The design of the program, including vision, mission, strategy, and governance; 3. Deployment of the program within the organization; 4. Measurable benefits of the program to the organization; and 5. The overall positive impact of the program on the organization. Programs may be awarded a Gold, Silver, or Bronze designation for each category and there may be multiple winners of each designation (e.g., 11 Gold designations were awarded for Best Advance in Creating a Learning Strategy).
