September 14, 2022
Boulder, Colo…Powers Resource Center (PRC), a Boulder-based talent development and leadership training company specializing in remote work, is excited to announce it has received multiple awards for its Elevate Virtual Leadership program for the 2022 Brandon Hall Group HCM Excellence Awards.
The program captured the Gold Award “Best Advance in Managing a Remote Workforce” in the Future of Work category. In addition, the program received the Gold award in the Leadership Development category for “Best Advance in Leadership Development” as well as the Bronze award for “Best Unique or Innovative Leadership Program” in the same category. The wins were recently announced by Brandon Hall.
The Elevate Virtual Leadership Program was developed as a remote learning tool for a Fortune 500 company with over 40,000 employees and more than $130 billion in assets. This 9-month customized leadership development program created by PRC was designed to support a remote workforce. Goals included increasing team collaboration, consistent use of technology, maintaining company culture, and increased leader confidence in effectively managing performance in a remote environment. Results included an 80 percent program completion rate by 1,500 company managers and a measurable increase in company leaders’ effectiveness, engagement and skill assessment metrics in a virtual environment.
“We are thrilled to be recognized for our truly collaborative, intense dive into embracing the remote workforce employed with our client,” says Tara Powers, CEO of Powers Resource Center. “As large companies struggle to find and retain good employees, forward-thinking companies are embracing proactive methods to build a stronger culture and more cohesive teams. This results in positive support for new workplace dynamics and overall success and productivity within the company.”
The Human Capital Management (HCM) awards recognize the best organizations that have successfully deployed programs, strategies, modalities, processes, systems and tools that have achieved measurable results.
The awards attract entrants from leading corporations around the world and the top tier of entries were evaluated by an international panel of independent industry experts, as well as Brandon Hall Group senior analysts and executive team. The judging was based on the following criteria: fit the need; design of the program; functionality; innovation; and overall measurable benefits. Excellence Award winners are scheduled to be honored at Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Excellence Conference, Jan. 31-Feb. 2, 2023 in West Palm Beach, FL.
