Winners in ABA’s First Tech and New Product Awards
EDDYSTONE, PA – Rapid Learning Institute (RLI), a Philadelphia based online e-learning company, won a coveted Stevie® Award in the Bronze category at the 10th Annual American Business Awards held September 18th in San Francisco.
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.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the trophies were presented to winners during a gala banquet on Monday, September 17 at the Julia Morgan Ballroom. More than 200 nominees and their guests attended.
RLI won the Bronze in the category Best Training Site for its Compliance and Management Rapid Learning Center. The site is oriented toward professionals in the management, HR and leadership sectors and features online training delivered through the company’s Quick Take Rapid Learning® modules: six to ten minute talent development and training programs built around the principles of “chunked” learning and rapid knowledge delivery. The site also features RLI’s fast-read articles, long-form features, law and compliance guides, and online newsletters.
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. Winners were selected by more than 270 executives nationwide who participated in this year’s judging process.
“We couldn’t be happier to be recognized by our fellow professionals in this way,” said Stephen J. Meyer, Chief Executive Officer of RLI. “It’s great to see that our unique approach – the kind of fast ‘chunked ‘ learning that’s exemplified by our laser-focused Quick Take modules – has been singled out for this kind of honor.”
“This is a great signpost for us,” said Glenn Eckard, RLI Chief Operating Officer. “Awards like this provide validation – both for our company and our customers- that our approach is the right direction. I also think it’s a terrific tribute to our hard-working creative team, who turn out great ideas every day.”
“We’re delighted to recognize so many innovative companies, new products, technical achievements, and technology executives in the ABA’s new product and tech awards categories,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “It’s gratifying and inspiring to have received so many remarkable entries for this year’s competition.”
