Altogether, the Learning! 100 represent the best-of-the-best in learning and development organizations across the U.S.,” reports Catherine Upton, Group Publisher, Elearning! Media Group.

The Learning! 100 Award program has a solid research-based approach that offers firms a level playing field despite size, and post-awards learning opportunities to improve firm rankings in subsequent years. 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.

e-Learning for Kids is proud and honored to have been selected as one of these top ranked organizations that drive innovation and learning impact across their industries, nationally and/or globally.
