SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Intrepid by VitalSource announced it has received three Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards for the Providence St. Joseph Health Shared Services nurse manager leadership development program. Recognized with a gold award for Best Results of a Learning Program as well as two silver awards for Best Advance in Leadership Development and Best Use of a Blended Learning Program, the Intrepid Learn™ platform was central to training nurse managers on the job without taking them away from their primary duties.
“Excellence Award winners personify innovation that drives business results. Our winners embrace the future and embrace change and the challenges that go with it”
Providence St. Joseph Health employs more than 120,000 throughout Alaska, California, Montana, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, and Washington. The nurse manager learning program consisted of a five-month learning journey wrapped around eight in-person sessions. The online portion of the program was delivered by the Intrepid Learn platform, a modern learner-centric interface that allowed Providence St. Joseph Health to continue the learning in between face-to-face events as well as provide continuing support.
Providence St. Joseph Health’s Director, Talent Management and Learning Operations & Delivery, Darci Hall, commented, “One of the key challenges of this important initiative was to create a true partnership between Learning and Development and the Clinical Nursing Leadership. We wanted to ensure that our nurse managers viewed this course as both valuable and relevant. Survey feedback from our participants validated they were able to make tangible advancements as a direct result of this learning program.”
Sam Herring, Co-Founder, Vice President, and General Manager of Intrepid by VitalSource, shared, “We’re honored to be an integral part of this groundbreaking blended learning experience that is helping Providence St. Joseph Health achieve its nurse management development objectives.”
Intrepid Learn empowers employees to support business growth as well as their own career paths through digital learning at scale. Over the last five years, Intrepid Learn has received numerous Brandon Hall Group awards for social learning, sales training, sales enablement, best use of video, and leadership development.
The award entries were evaluated by a panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group analysts, and executives based upon the following criteria: fit the need, design of the program, functionality, innovation, and overall measurable benefits.
“Excellence Award winners personify innovation that drives business results. Our winners embrace the future and embrace change and the challenges that go with it,” said Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program. “It is amazing in reviewing these entries how organizations—both large and small—work across functions to make human capital management a valuable asset that enables business success.”
