Towards Maturity’s Ambassador Programme increases its international focus with IMC

by | Oct 10, 2012 | Articles, Press Release

One of Europe’s leading providers of learning and talent management solutions IMC, has joined Towards Maturity’s  growing Ambassador Programme.

Towards Maturity’s Ambassador Programme is made up of 21 leading learning specialist companies including UK, German and Indian based companies . They work together as ambassadors for change, identifying and improving good practices, raising awareness and driving the whole learning technology industry forward. They also share a common passion for ensuring that independent advice is freely available to all.

Towards Maturity’s annual benchmark is the largest international online learning technology study.  It provides its participants with personalised benchmark reports to help improve the impact of learning technologies in their organisations.  Both the study and personalised benchmark reports are free thanks to the Towards Maturity’s Ambassador Programme.

Dr Dirk Thissen, Regional Director of Northern Europe at IMC comments, “With more than four million people in over 1,000 companies and public institutions putting their trust in our products and service, we pride ourselves at promoting good practice. We are proud to support the outstanding work by Towards Maturity’s Ambassadors to increase learning technology good practice globally.”

The 2012 Benchmark Study is currently analysing how organisations’ learning strategies are responding to uncertain economic times, including how this climate is affecting budgets, technology changes and the building of talent. It also looked at the impact learning technologies are having in organisations of different sizes and sectors. Furthermore it will uncover the hype verses the reality of learning technology trends, whilst detailing drivers, barriers and benefits.

Laura Overton, Managing Director of Towards Maturity said, “We are delighted that IMC has joined our growing Ambassador Programme. We are seeing an increasing trend to benchmark not only in the UK, but internationally. IMC’s global perspective will be invaluable to help ensure that more organisations are aware of the effective practices that really make a difference.”

The Towards Maturity’s Ambassador Programme includes the following founding ambassadors Brightwave, Epic, GlobalEnglish, LINE Communications, The Corporate eLearning Consortium, successfactors, Redtray and The Charity Learning Consortium, plus CERTPOINT Systems, Speexx, Fusion-Universal, Information Transfer, learndirect, Toolwire, e2train,  QA, Ontuitive, MindLeaders, Upside Learning, IMC and Redware.

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.
