London, April 25 2012 – MindLeaders, a leading provider of elearning technologies and blended learning solutions has joined Towards Maturity’s Ambassador Programme to encourage its global customer base to benchmark and share good practice.

MindLeaders has been changing lives through learning since 1981 and has a pool of customer success stories in the United States, Europe, Middle East and Africa. It has recently embarked on its own mini benchmark to evaluate how e-talent ready its customers are.

Janet Garcia, MindLeaders’ Director of UK and International, comments on joining Towards Maturity’s Ambassador Programme, “MindLeaders is really beginning to invest in benchmarking both internally and with its customers. Being part of Towards Maturity’s Ambassador Programme will help us broaden our industry perspective, share our success stories and good practices.”

Towards Maturity’s Ambassador Programme is made up of 19 leading learning specialist companies. They work together as ambassadors for change, identifying and improving good practice, raising awareness and driving the whole learning industry forward. They also share a common passion for ensuring that independent advice is freely available to all.

Towards Maturity’s annual benchmark study is the largest online learning technology benchmark study in Europe. It is free to take part in and provides its participants with personalised benchmark reports to help improve the impact of learning technologies in their organisations.

Over the nine years of benchmarking, over 1800 organisations across the private, public and not-for-profit sectors have benefited from the in-depth free study.  A record 600 organisations participated in the 2011 research. The study is free thanks to Towards Maturity’s Ambassador Programme.

Laura Overton, Managing Director of Towards Maturity said, “MindLeaders bring a wealth of international experience to our Ambassador Programme and we are delighted they have joined.  In our industry there is still a lack of awareness of the value of benchmarking and I’m looking forward to working with MindLeaders to encourage our industry to benchmark and learn from each other more.”

The 2012 Benchmark Study will be launched in June 2012.  To help shape the 2012 benchmark study, Towards Maturity is encouraging users to participant in its new LinkedIn discussion group.

The Ambassador Programme was launched in November 2010 and includes the following founding ambassadors Brightwave, Epic, GlobalEnglish, LINE Communications, LMMatters, successfactors, REDTRAY and The Charity Learning Consortium, plus CERTPOINT Systems, Speexx, Fusion-Universal, Information Transfer, learndirect, Toolwire, e2train,  QA, Ontuitive, MindLeaders and Upside Learning.  Click here for more information on the Toward Maturity’s  Ambassador Programme please visit or email [email protected].

Challenging Perceptions

The corporate learning market is rapidly evolving to meet the ever-changing demands of work and worker. The C-suite and L&D leaders can no longer ignore that over 90 percent of organizations do not realize the full value of their investments.

All you need is Evidence

All you need is Evidence

Every year over $400billion is spent on corporate learning globally, yet only 15% is proven to stick. Investments in learning are continuing to grow year on year but performance impact is not changing. The industry is still struggling to provide real proof of impact, in fact, for the first time the Towards Maturity Index is tracking a significant decline. This is causing leaders to have low confidence levels in L&D.
