Brandon Hall Group, which operates the largest and longest-running awards program in Human Capital Management, honored its Excellence Award winners at Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Excellence Conference, in West Palm Beach, Florida Jan. 31 – Feb. 2, 2023.

ICOM Productions, an innovative learning solutions partner and part of The Learning Network family of companies, has proudly announced that its customer Purolator, Canada’s leading integrated freight, package and logistics solutions provider, won two coveted Gold 2022 Brandon Hall Group Human Capital Management (HCM) Excellence awards in Learning and Development Technology.

“We are thrilled to receive the awards and be recognized by Brandon Hall Group for our partnership with Purolator,” said Kevin Jones, co-founder of ICOM Productions and CEO of The Learning Network. “Our goal was to develop a learning program that would ensure Purolator’s employees had the necessary knowledge and skills to improve performance and to further the company’s mission to always protect their employee’s health and safety.”

ICOM Productions and Purolator won the Brandon Hall Group awards across two categories:

  • Best Advance in Augmented and Virtual Reality: Purolator National Hub – Ontario (NHO) Augmented Reality Facility Launch Tour
  • Best Advance in Unique Learning Technology: Purolator National Hub – Ontario (NHO) 3D Modelling Across Training

Tennyson Devoe, Vice President Talent, Learning & Safety at Purolator, acknowledged, “ICOM Productions was the ideal partner to assess the learning requirements, and build our digital and traditional learning programs across all roles in our new 430,000+ square-foot National Hub. Their capabilities in using innovative tools and techniques, such as 3D and Augmented Reality, brought leading-edge learning experiences to our audiences.”

Devoe continued, “Being recognized with two gold awards by the Brandon Hall Group is a testament to the amazing work the Purolator Learning & Development and ICOM teams put into ensuring our learners know how valued they are by the company and the value that Purolator places on learning and development.”

Entries for the HCM Excellence Awards were evaluated by a panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group analysts, and executives based upon these criteria: fit the need, design of the program, functionality, innovation, and overall measurable benefits.

“We appreciate the recognition from Brandon Hall Group for the innovative work we’re doing with our partners and colleagues at Purolator,” said Phil Speed, Senior Vice President Business Development at ICOM Productions and The Learning Network. “Their unrivaled commitment to their employees has made them a leader in their industry. We are honoured to be a trusted partner as they continue to evolve their award-winning Learning and Development initiatives.”
