Welcome to the website for the Bersin by Deloitte WhatWorks® award program, which recognizes innovation and excellence in critical areas of HR, learning and talent. This is the second year for the research-driven WhatWorks award program, which welcomes applications from across the HR, Talent and Learning spectrum.
Join innovative Bersin by Deloitte members such as Marriott International, Merck & Co. and SAP as change and thought leaders who have been recognized by previous Bersin WhatWorks and Learning Leaders award programs. Our more dynamic, new WhatWorks Award Program will recognize organizations that have developed and implemented groundbreaking approaches to HR, learning and talent resulting in significant business improvement.
What’s different? This year we will choose five finalists and just one award recipient. One finalist will be chosen in each of the following categories:
- Transforming HR
- Developing Tomorrow’s Leaders
- Enabling High-Impact Learning
- Acquiring Top Talent
- Optimizing Talent Management
The finalists for the five categories will present their stories at IMPACT 2014, the premier event for HR, talent and learning executives which takes place March 31-April 3 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Finalist organizations, including the ultimate WhatWorks award recipient, and their innovative and unique programs will be showcased in Human Resource Executive magazine.
WhatWorks Award Program finalists and the ultimate award recipient will also be featured in a follow-on report by Bersin by Deloitte profiling successful submissions, and will have opportunities to be featured in Bersin by Deloitte webinars and in case studies.
A Message from David Mallon and Kim Lamoureux:
Thank you for exploring Bersin by Deloitte WhatWorks® award program. Our goal is to identify best practices and recognize your achievements. We look forward to hearing about how your organization is meeting its key challenges.
The program uses selection criteria based on our years of in-depth study across all areas of HR, learning, and talent management. Our new expanded WhatWorks award program is for any and all organizations that have driven significant operational improvement by applying unique and innovative approaches to solving for critical HR, learning and talent challenges. In that light, the fundamental benchmark criteria for being recognized is also simple: demonstrated proof of positive business impact based on the change, initiative, program, or process improvement described in your submission.
Be sure to check out the previous Learning Leaders and WhatWorks Award recipients to get an idea of the types of programs and initiatives we consider top notch. You will see that the program is not exclusive to well-known organizations with big resources. All organizations – big and small, public and private, government and non-profit – have equal opportunity for recognition.
We look forward to hearing about the innovative programs that are driving results for your organization.
