Consultancies among recipients of training & development awards

The American Society for Training & Development (ASTD) announced that 39 organizations from India, South Africa, and the United States are winners in the 2006 ASTD BEST Awards competition. Booz Allen Hamilton of McLean, Virginia holds the first place ranking.

The BEST Awards recognize organizations that demonstrate enterprise-wide success through employee learning and development. According to Tony Bingham, ASTD’s president and CEO, “The winners set the standard of excellence for exceptional learning practices, and demonstrate that a skilled workforce is vital to achieving results. The 2006 BEST winners use learning as a strategic tool and have the support of senior leaders who champion a learning culture.”

Deloitte & Touche USA LLP was ranked 5th; Wipro Technologies 6th; Computer Sciences Corporation 12th; Satyam Computer Services 15th; Tata Consultancy Services 24th; and Infosys Technologies 30th.

CSC’s Global Learning and Development Management department was recognized, for a second consecutive year, for learning programs that provide opportunities for employees across the company to improve their competencies and skills. In addition, the Senior Leader Development Program, which provides senior executives, succession plan candidates, and high potential leaders with tools, resources and collaborative opportunities to help them grow for the next leadership opportunity, was also acknowledged.

Through an online survey, the 2006 BEST Awards welcomed applications from 78 organizations in seven countries. These organizations submitted quantitative and qualitative information to ASTD about their learning and development practices and programs. Their applications were assessed by members of the BEST Awards advisory committee, a group of experts in the learning and performance field.

ASTD is the world’s largest association dedicated to workplace learning and performance professionals. ASTD’s members come from more than 100 countries and connect locally in 140 US chapters and 24 Global Networks.
