London (UK), November 2019 - The Learning and Performance Institute (LPI) is proud to announce the finalists for the 2020 Learning Awards, the learning sector’s annual celebration of outstanding achievement, best practice and excellence in corporate learning and performance.
Finalists for the 2020 Learning Awards, representing the highest achieving individuals and organisations in the field of learning and development, were recently announced by the Learning and Performance Institute. Debuting two new categories for 2020, the 17 awards categories open for entries received a record number of submissions from around the globe, from leading international brands to emerging start-ups. All the shortlisted finalists were selected due to their demonstration of innovation, exceptional performance, and contribution to the learning profession.
In relation to the support of the learning community for cementing the position of The Learning Awards as one of the sector’s leading awards ceremonies, the LPI's CEO, Edmund Monk, said, “The stature and prestige of The Learning Awards is unrivalled. From those shortlisted to the eventual winners, we find time and time again that the experience of being involved with the Awards opens the door for life-changing opportunities, as companies and individuals are often sought out for their experience and innovation.
"Once again, I’m delighted to see that the depth and quality of submissions has continued to rise. I find it extremely gratifying each year to be able to get insight into how the organisations have adopted their own unique approaches to learning and how they have implemented them to drive performance within business."
