Sify eLearning Wins Gold at the 2018 Brandon Hall Group Excellence in Awards for Learning and Development, Talent Management, Leadership Development, Talent Acquisition, Workforce Management and HR and Sales Performance Awards.

Sify eLearning, a leader in innovative custom learning solutions, won a coveted Brandon Hall Group Gold award for excellence in the Best Unique or Innovative Learning and Development Program, for our Sify eLearning project with Merck on ‘Virtual Reality Technology for Mitigating Unconscious Bias in Hiring.’ Sify eLearning’s win was announced on 8.23.18. The winners are listed at

The scope of the project, created in October 2017, was to design and create a VR solution to strength Merck’s existing ILT training on Unconscious Bias for Hiring Managers. Sify’s solution included a virtual environment using the HTC Vive where the participant experienced an array of hiring-related scenarios comprising different ethnicities through an avatar.

About the Award
“Excellence Award winners personify innovation that drives business results. Our winners embrace the future and embrace change and the challenges that go with it,” said Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program. “It is amazing in reviewing these entries how organizations – both large and small – work across functions to make human capital management a valuable asset that enables business success.”

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 Awards winners will be honored at Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Excellence Conference, January 23-25, 2019, at the Hilton West Palm Beach in Florida. Select winners also will serve as presenters in breakout sessions sharing their leading practices during the 2½-day conference.

“The excellence of our award winners allows us to create unique content that actively involves attendees and gives them proven solutions to adapt to their own environment when they get home,” Brandon Hall Group CEO Mike Cooke said. “The conference also affords these award winners some well-deserved recognition and validation for the risks they took to take HCM to the next level in their companies.”
