A Warm Welcome to Our Latest Ambassador, Sponge UK

by | Oct 17, 2014 | Articles, Press Release

Towards Maturity welcomes leading e-learning company, Sponge UK, into the thought-leadership Ambassador Programme, which supports Towards Maturity’s annual Benchmark Study aimed at helping businesses change and grow through learning innovation.

The Ambassador Programme is a unique collaboration that enables the Ambassadors to work together with Towards Maturity for change, identifying and improving good practice, raising awareness and driving the whole industry forward.
The study would not be possible without the support of Towards Maturity Ambassadors who share a passion for ensuring that independent advice is freely available to all participants.
Now in its 11th year, the Towards Maturity Benchmark surveys and studies how people learn at work and uses the data to help Learning and Development professionals assess and improve their learning provision. It has been refined through the participation of more than 3,500 organisations and 15,000 learners and industry thought leaders from around the globe.
Sponge UK Managing Director, Louise Pasterfield, said: 
“We are proud to become a Towards Maturity Ambassador. Encouraging learning innovation which supercharges the workplace, promoting excellence and sharing good practice are among the values we share with Towards Maturity. We hope to make a contribution to the important work of the organisation by supporting its respected Benchmark Study.”
Laura Overton, Managing Director of Towards Maturity, said:
“We are delighted to welcome Sponge into the Ambassador Programme. As an organisation they demonstrate integrity, accountability and a commitment to excellence – something that is critical as we gather independent evidence to support L&D effectiveness. Our Ambassadors are industry leaders who work together to support change. This is a really exciting time for the L&D industry as we seek to modernise learning and we are delighted to have Sponge on board.”
The new 2014 Towards Maturity Benchmark Study is being unveiled at 12 noon (GMT) on Thursday, November 6 at a launch webinar in conjunction with Learning Technologies.

Organisations need to take Transformation One Step at a Time

In order to achieve true and lasting transformation, organisations need to take it one step, one stage at a time, says Piers Lea, chief strategy officer at LEO and Learning Technologies Group plc, and a Towards Maturity ambassador. It’s also what the latest Towards Maturity benchmark report ‘The Transformation Curve’, says when it outlines the four stages of maturity – Optimising Training, Taking Control, Letting Go and Sharing Responsibility.

Top Tips for Building Habits

Top Tips for Building Habits

As learning professionals, we want to design interventions that lead to lasting change. Shifting behaviour involves a process that continues long after the programme finishes. Our research has shown that mature learning organisations are more successful at integrating learning and work, but they don’t abandon formal learning. One of their strategies is to design learning campaigns and programmes that build and encourage new habits.
