The Non-profit Nationwide Mentoring Network secures top honors for its implementation of ExpertusONE™ Learning Management System

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Big Brothers Big Sisters has received Chief Learning Officer Magazine's prestigious "technology innovation in enterprise education" Gold Medal.  The medal, awarded at the publication's Fall 2012 Symposium, recognizes the industry leader that demonstrates excellence in the design and delivery of its employee development programs.

Big Brothers Big Sisters, the country's leading donor-funded youth mentoring network, uses the ExpertusONE™ Learning Management System (LMS) for training volunteer mentors and professional match support staff.  Expertus is a global provider of next-gen, cloud-based learning systems and strategies.  The S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation funded the development of Big Brothers Big Sisters' volunteer pre-match course and implementation of its new "Impact U" learning management system.

Earlier this year, the network of 350 local affiliated mentoring agencies partnered with Expertus to give Big Brothers Big Sisters' learners an easy-to-use, highly scalable, dynamic learning platform.  Now, three months after its ExpertusONE™ LMS launch, the nationwide mentoring organization relies on the award-winning learning system to:

  • Easily track and measure learning progress and certifications
  • Gain access to hundreds of training courses, webinars and documents
  • Improve training consistency, efficiency and effectiveness

An initial Big Brothers Big Sisters "Readiness Survey" reported that 84 percent of program learning participants noted a substantial improvement in their job or volunteer readiness. Read case study.

"ExpertusONE was an essential component in winning this esteemed Learning In Practice award," John Kulikowski, Big Brothers Big Sisters' Director of Learning and Development, said.  "As the nation's premier mentoring organization, we must ensure that our mentor matching and support services continually align with emerging best training practices. And only ExpertusONE's leading-edge architecture was able to dynamically evolve with our ever-expanding learning audience and needs."

For 2012, more than 200 top learning executives and solution providers were nominated by their peers in 15 Learning In Practice categories. Nominations were then judged by a panel of industry experts and executives from some of the world's largest and most-respected companies.

"We're incredibly happy for Big Brothers Big Sisters' big win," Ramesh Ramani, Expertus' President and CEO, said. "Expertus is known for its groundbreaking learning technology. This is why we're thrilled to partner with pioneering learning organizations like Big Brothers Big Sisters that want to take their training programs and outcomes to the next level."
