CLO_Winners_SweetRush_2017

The prestigious award highlights SweetRush’s commitment to innovation and its investment in learning technology.

San Francisco, Calif., October 30, 2017 — Chief Learning Officer magazine recently announced the winners of its coveted Learning in Practice Awards, and SweetRush won Gold in the Technology Innovation category.

The award recognizes “vendors that have rolled out an innovative learning technology for a client.” SweetRush’s winning submission, which was created in collaboration with its client-partner Bridgestone Americas, is a scenario-based mobile learning game designed for a millennial audience. As sales associates play the game, they practice skills such as recommending products, overcoming objections, and closing sales.

The game was developed in SweetRush’s proprietary learning technology Helium, which features sophisticated gaming elements and works on mobile platforms such as tablets and smartphones.

“The pace of change in technology is extremely fast, and this is certainly true for the learning and development industry,” said Arturo Schwartzberg, SweetRush Cofounder and Chairman. “Since the inception of SweetRush, we’ve been investing in technology by developing our own tools and pushing the capabilities of off-the-shelf tools. We’re thrilled to be recognized by Chief Learning Officer for our own learning technology, which made the development of this custom learning solution possible.”

The Learning in Practice Awards are given annually to learning leaders and providers who demonstrate excellence in the design and delivery of employee development programs.

“Since 2003, the Learning in Practice Awards have been a benchmark for exemplary enterprise learning and development,” said Mike Prokopeak, Vice President and Editor in Chief at Human Capital Media. “This year’s group of winners is no exception. From CLOs at large, multinational companies to learning leaders at small and midsized businesses as well as progressive vendor companies, they are all examples of the powerful personal and organizational impact that learning creates.”

The full list of winners is available at the Chief Learning Officer website.
