About The Program

Now entering its 23rd 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 1994.


The Excellence Awards recognize the best organizations that have successfully deployed programs, strategies, modalities, processes, systems, and tools that have achieved measurable results. The program attracts entrants from leading corporations around the world, as well as mid-market and smaller firms.

The Excellence Awards offers over one hundred categories that you can enter in. We see applicants that come from program designers, managers, and executives that want to share their winning programs, strategies, technologies, that involves organizational improvement and performance, effective technology implementations, insightful models, and compelling success stories.


Also, solution providers with innovative, cutting-edge technologies, products and services have the opportunity to enter. We are honored to receive applications from organizations around the world ranging from small, medium, large, and global enterprises, to government, not-for-profits, and associations.
