Press: Reed Learning joins the Towards Maturity Ambassador Programme

by | Jul 23, 2015 | Articles, Press Release

Reed Learning, a leading global provider of learning solutions and part of the REED Group, today announced that it is the newest member of the Towards Maturity Ambassador Programme, an elite group of industry leaders who support independent L&D benchmarking around the globe.

Reed Learning’s focus on learning that has real business impact fits perfectly with the vision and values of the Towards Maturity Benchmark study, which aims to support organisations that want to accelerate performance.

Laura Overton of Towards Maturity said:
“We’re delighted to welcome Reed Learning on board our Ambassador Programme. Their philosophy of bringing solid organisational change that is founded on real-world research mirrors our core beliefs and the overall aim of the Benchmark study which is to help businesses change and grow through learning innovation.”

The Towards Maturity Benchmark is an internationally recognised longitudinal study on the effective implementation of learning innovation. The research continuously surveys and studies how people learn at work, and uses this data to help L&D professionals assess and improve the appropriateness, effectiveness and efficiency of their learning provision. To date over 3,500 organisations and 16,000+ learners have helped to shape the benchmark which now reaches 44 countries.

Nick Bradley, Managing Director of Reed Learning said:
“Towards Maturity has been analysing learning impact and performance for over 10 years, with some of the world’s biggest companies, and can provide true insight to support improvement. We see this as hugely credible, but it’s more than this … Towards Maturity offers the ability for an organisation to benchmark its learning effectiveness, clearly blueprint a new approach and ultimately increase return on investment. We are proud to be associated with an organisation that creates tangible business value.”

To celebrate the strategic partnership, Reed Learning will host an event in September with Laura Overton and a select group of learning leaders. The event is free to attend, exclusively for senior HR, Learning & Development and Talent Management leaders in organisations that want to collaborate and accelerate learning performance.
