North Highland Named A 2019 Learningelite Winner

North Highland was named a 2019 LearningElite winner by Chief Learning Officer magazine, placing in the Bronze category. The ninth annual LearningElite Awards program honors the best organizations for learning and development. This robust, peer-reviewed ranking and benchmarking program recognizes those organizations that employ exemplary workforce development strategies that deliver significant business results.

This year, special emphasis was placed on how learning teams are helping their organizations adapt and prepare for change.

“We know disruption impacts the organization, whether it’s market disruption, technology disruption, labor force disruption or regulatory disruption. However, we weren’t entirely prepared for how excited everyone would be to talk about this,” said Sarah Kimmel, vice president of research for HCM. The positive, constructive response to disruption is to foster growth, agility and resilience; it is to empower people to think critically about new ways forward, creative innovations and collaborations that may prove fruitful. This mission — to grow the capacity of the individual, and with it, the organization, into something of greater scope and nuance — is the beating heart of learning and development.”

“At North Highland, we know people are at the core of our business success,” said Kimberly Currier, Senior Vice President, People Strategy. “Our approach to learning is to help employees grow where they are and offer them the resources they need to advance their expertise. That, in turn, helps our clients grow and advance. We see learning as the pebble dropped in the pond and the ripple effects are our people, our clients and our communities. That is at the core of who we are.”
