Rapid Learning Institute named as Finalist in 2012 American Business Awards
10th annual Stevie® Awards will be presented on June 18 in New York City and September 17 in San Francisco
Philadelphia – May 10, 2012 – Rapid Learning Institute (RLI) was named a Finalist today in the category Best Training Site in the 2012 American Business Awards, and will ultimately be a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie Award winner in the program.
The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.
More than 3,000 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Most Innovative Company of the Year, Management Team of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year, among others.
The training website entered in the competition is RLI’s Compliance & Management Rapid Learning Center. The site is designed to give busy managers the tools to train their people amid such challenges as limited training time and short employee attention spans. Using the concept of “chunked” learning, the site breaks training down into small, easily digested six-to-ten minute modules called Quick Takes that any employee can call upon at any moment they need them. The Quick Takes also provide consistent learning reinforcement through the use of immediately accessible discussion guides, quizzes, fast read articles, newsletters and other tools that both managers and learners can consult at the moment of need to make sure their training sticks.
“This is a great honor for us,” said Stephen J. Meyer, Chief Executive Offer of RLI. “To be chosen as a finalist from among so many great training firms is a real tribute to the terrific research and creative team we’ve assembled.”
Finalists were chosen by more than 140 business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in April and May. More than 150 members of 10 specialized judging committees will determine Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging, to take place May 14 – 25.
