Welcome to the 2013 Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards

Now entering its 19th year, the Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards Program is the most prestigious awards program in the industry.  Often times called the “Academy Awards” by Learning, Talent and Business Executives, the program was one of the first of its kind in the learning industry, which was pioneered in 1995.

In the last several years we have expanded to include additional categories that cover functional areas that are responsible for driving performance within an organization.  We recognize the best companies that have successfully developed and deployed programs, strategies, modalities, processes, systems, and tools that have helped companies achieve measurable results.

We are honored to receive applications from organizations around the world ranging from small, medium, large, and global enterprises, government, not-for-profit, and associations.

There are seventy-eight categories across four program areas. To view topics within each, select the program area listed below for the full list of categories, a description of each category, and a link to the application for each.
