UK elearning community benefits from Towards Maturity benchmark

by | Jul 3, 2012 | Articles, Press Release

3rd July 2012, London: Members of the UK’s largest elearning community, the eLearning Network, are benefiting from the annual Towards Maturity learning benchmark study. Now it is urging other organisations to participate as part of its ongoing ‘Campaign for Effective Elearning’.

Elearning Network members can take part in the Benchmark here.
As part of its work with the learning and development community, the eLearning Network (eLN) launched its campaign at the start of 2012. “The campaign works to support technology-led learning in all its forms” explains Rob Hubbard, eLN Chairman. “Members share knowledge and best practices with the aim of helping everyone create and commission better elearning content, systems and apps. We are encouraging our members to get involved with the Benchmark as part of their ”
He continues, “We’re delighted to support the Towards Maturity Benchmark study as part of our campaign. We know our members have gained great insights by taking part in the Benchmark over the years and urge everyone who is interested in pursuing excellence in learning and development to get involved in this year’s study.”
The Towards Maturity Benchmark study provides a unique and free opportunity for organisations to review their current approach to learning, compare their progress with peers and to use this information to help improve their performance. In 2011, a record 600 organisations took part across the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.
eLN Board member Matt Brewer, Technology Training Consultant from Chubb Insurance Company, has already participated in the 2012 study and commented “”Having participated in the Towards Maturity Benchmarking process for the last few years, I think it provides easily the best and most comprehensive assessment of where we are in comparison with other companies who are using or planning to use online learning. Don’t just think that the results are the only useful part of it though. Just completing the benchmark focuses the mind to areas you may need to address, and provides ideas of other possible alternatives you may not have considered.”
The study closes on the 27th of July but everyone who completes the Benchmark study by 6 July will receive their personalised, independent report in just two weeks. Laura Overton, Managing Director of Towards Maturity will also be talking about the study at this week’s eLN mobile learning event on Friday 6 July in London, for which a few tickets are still available: http://www.elearningnetwork.org/events/mad-about-mobile-learning
Those wishing to take part in the study can do so online here

We always talk about the benefits of undergoing Towards Maturity’s Learning Health Check and using statistics to emphasise the effects of benchmarking, but what does its real impact look like on a business? We interviewed Nebel Crowhurst, Head of People Experience at River Island, to find out what role the Towards Maturity Health Check played in helping her develop her organisation into one that facilitates a high-performing learning culture.

Case Study: Best Learning Technologies Project 2018 (UK commercial Sector)

In 2018, 93% of learning practitioners wanted to increase employee engagement with learning, but only 27% were successful. With less than a third meeting this goal, it is important to explore how an exemplar organisation turned their learning strategy on its head to achieve just that.
