SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. June 20, 2017. — The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), based in the United Kingdom, has announced the finalists for its 2017 People Management Awards, and SweetRush was recognized along with its client, Hilton.

Submitting in the “Best L&D [Learning & Development] Initiative” category for the private sector, SweetRush and Hilton highlighted their collaboration on a highly successful mobile learning solution for housekeeping staff. This category recognizes “creative and effective L&D” initiatives that have “contributed to the success of the organization and its people.”
