Modis Wins Gold in 2016 Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards

Resource Development Manager New Hire Training Program is Top Pick in Two Categories

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (January 27, 2017)Modis, the world leader in comprehensive IT and engineering recruitment and workforce solutions, in conjunction with its parent company, The Adecco Group, won two coveted Brandon Hall Group gold awards for its Resource Development Manager (RDM) New Hire Training Program, securing the top spot in two categories: Best Use of Blended Learning and Best Results of a Learning Program.

Together with The Adecco Group talent management team, Modis lead the design, development, implementation and evaluation of the RDM New Hire Training Program. In addition, Modis reinforced the Program with decisive content and the expertise of in-house subject matter experts.

“The success of our RDM New Hire Training Program is a testament to the outstanding achievement that is possible when great partnership exists between field and corporate support resources,” said Jack Cullen, president of Modis. “By working together, Modis and The Adecco Group identified training gaps and opportunities through the lens of distinct perspectives. The outcome was a highly effective, compelling product, and our company and new hires have benefited tremendously from this effort.”

“Winning a Brandon Hall Group Excellence Award means an organization is an elite innovator within Human Capital Management. The award signifies that the organization’s work represents a leading practice in that HCM function,” said Rachel Cooke, chief operating officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program.

“Their achievement is also notable because of the positive impact their work in HCM has on business results. All award winners have to demonstrate a measurable benefit to the business, not just the HCM operation. That’s an important distinction. Our HCM award winners are helping to transform the business.”

The award entries were evaluated by a panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group analysts and executives based upon the following criteria: fit the need, design of the program, functionality, innovation, and overall measureable benefits.

Excellence Award winners will be honored at Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Excellence Conference January 24-27, 2017, at the PGA National Resort in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Selected winners also will serve as presenters in the more than 20 breakout sessions during the 3½-day event.
