NIIT Ltd. Awarded Gold LearningElite Organization by Chief Learning Officer Magazine Editors

Atlanta, GA Apr 12, 2015 NIIT Ltd. has been named a Gold LearningElite organization for 2015 by Chief Learning Officer magazine, published by Human Capital Media (HCM). The LearningElite program is composed of organizations that perform above a benchmark standard for implementing learning and development (L&D) best practices for their workforce. Organizations are ranked based on their execution and impact of these L&D initiatives, and NIIT Ltd. was ranked No. 29 from more than 200 applicants.

The LearningElite program is the only peer-ranking and benchmarking program of its kind. Developed through a collaboration between chief learning officers, senior workforce development practitioners and the Human Capital Media Research and Advisory Group, it utilizes rigorous evaluation methodologies to objectively assess both the scope and value of participants' L&D practices.

"Every year the number of applications we receive grows, and this year was no exception," said Sarah Kimmel, director of research and advisory services for HCM. "While our rigorous metrics and high standard for inclusion in the program remain consistent, we are seeing more organizations striving to surpass the benchmark and qualify. That organizations are increasingly recognizing the importance of L&D in establishing a productive and fulfilled workforce is heartening."

"It is an absolute honor for us to be a LearningElite Gold organization. While it is our constant endeavor to deliver training outcomes with measurable business impact to our customers, we also run training like a business in-house. This ensures that our internal teams are equipped with the effectiveness and efficiency that is required to deliver best-in-class training services and solutions to the world's leading companies," said Sapnesh Lalla, President, Corporate Learning Group.
