Rapid Learning Institute (RLI) has promoted Andrew Elia to Vice President of Technology. Elia has been RLI’s Director of IT since 2010.

“Andrew first joined RLI in 2004, and he’s been integral to the growth and success of the company ever since,” said CEO Stephen Meyer. “We have greatly benefited from Andrew’s many accomplishments and his dedicated service.”

Elia will continue to help guide RLI through its next phase of growth and will provide the technological leadership required to deliver RLI’s e-learning library to an expanding group of clients.

“Working with the Rapid Learning Institute has been a great experience and I’m excited for this new opportunity,” Elia said. “It is wonderful to be acknowledged for my efforts and to see that hard work pays off.”

Elia enjoys his role at RLI in part because of company’s culture of collaboration and support. “It is nice to be able to say that I enjoy coming to work every day and that I am surrounded with a positive and highly motivated group of individuals,” Elia said.

Before joining RLI, Elia received his bachelor’s degree from Widener University. He earned his master’s in Information Systems from the University of Denver in 2010.

Rapid Learning Institute (RLI) provides online training and talent development tools for businesses, government agencies, nonprofits and educational institutions in the areas of sales, leadership and management, human resources, employment law compliance, and workplace safety. RLI’s approach is founded on three core principles: 1) Rapid Learning. Workplace training should be delivered in short bursts – just six to 10 minutes at a time. Today’s multi-tasking workforce has neither the time nor the attention span for traditional lengthy training formats. 2) Single-Concept Learning. People learn best when training is focused on a narrow concept where learning goals are clearly defined. When training is delivered in small packets, the brain can easily absorb, remember and apply what it learns. 3) Research-Based Learning. Training is most powerful when it’s grounded in verifiable research. When learners see training as credible, they’re more likely to translate the learning into on-the-job behavior. RLI’s signature six to 10 minute modules, called Quick Takes, incorporate these three ideas into unique training programs that get results.

Based in Greater Philadelphia, RLI is an operating division of Business 21 Publishing.
