Honored for Excellence in Learning Technology Implementation

CHICAGO – October 27, 2015 – SilkRoad (, a global leader in cloud-based talent management solutions, is proud to announce Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago won a coveted Brandon Hall Group bronze award for excellence in the Best Advance in Learning Technology Implementation category.

When Lurie Children’s Hospital moved from its 130-year-old building into a new facility, executives selected SilkRoad Learning to ensure a smooth, safe transition. Highlights of the seamless move include:

  • 127 children with an array of medically complex conditions were successfully transported with zero safety issues
  • 95% of Lurie employees completed training, contributing significantly to the organization’s remarkable safety record
  • Training orientation for the facility was completed on-time and on-budget

“The statistics were impressive, but what was even more amazing was being there on day one to see how the kids were taken care of and watch the staff and physicians in action,” said Kimberly Evans Labok, project manager at Lurie Children’s Hospital. “It truly brought home how much training mattered.”

Entries were evaluated by a panel of veteran, independent and senior industry experts, as well as Brandon Hall group senior analysts and executive leadership.

“The high quality of work and commitment to driving business results among our award winners never fails to amaze me,” said Rachel Cooke, chief operating officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program. “All of these winning programs deliver meaningful business results to their organizations. Winning an Excellence Award is a great honor, but the real winners are the organizations themselves and their customers and clients because of the innovation and customer focus they demonstrate.”

Excellence Awards winners will be honored at Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Excellence Conference January 27-29, 2016, at the PGA National Resort in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Selected winners also will serve as presenters in the more than 20 breakout sessions during the 2½-day conference.
