Emergn named finalist in 2023 EdTech Awards
Digital business services firm recognized for its platform designed to build high-performing teams
LONDON – April 19, 2023 – Emergn, a global digital business services firm helping companies deliver their most promising ideas into valuable products and customer experiences, faster, today announced its workplace learning platform, Academy, has been selected as a finalist in the 2023 EdTech Awards. The EdTech Awards recognizes organizations’ outstanding contributions in transforming education through technology. Emergn was selected as a finalist in the Corporate Training Solution category.
Academy is designed to teach midsize and enterprise organizations modern ways of working to drive organizational success by building and scaling product management, agile and leadership skills at pace, regardless of industry. Academy creates a unique and effective learning environment to grow high-performing teams while not interrupting the current flow of work. The platform allows learners to choose the time and pace of their learning modules and can prove their skills through knowledge-based and practitioner-based assessments.
“Emergn conducted research that revealed workplace training programs lack effectiveness and alignment with the skills employees want most – with only 23% of learners and 22% of leaders reporting that they viewed their organization’s current workplace training as extremely effective,” said Emergn’s head of learning services, Steven Angelo-Eadie. “We designed Academy to drive organizational success and make it easier for firms to attract and retain the best talent by creating a culture of continuous learning. We are honored to be recognized by the EdTech Awards.”
The EdTech Awards were established in 2010 to recognize, acknowledge and celebrate the most exceptional innovators, leaders and trendsetters in education technology. This year’s finalists and winners were narrowed from a larger field and judged based on various criteria, including pedagogical workability, efficacy and results, support, clarity, value and potential.
“A very big congratulations to all The EdTech Awards 2023 finalists and winners – and congratulations to all who endured the upheavals of the last few years only to come through stronger, more experienced, resilient and resolute in laying out the future of learning,” said Victor Rivero, who as Editor-in-Chief of EdTech Digest, oversees the program. “To the innovators, leaders, and trendsetters of education technology, you are the way forward.”
