Imparta is delighted to announce that it has won a coveted Brandon Hall Group Gold Award for ‘Best Unique or Innovative Learning and Development Programme’, as well as Silver for ‘Best Programme for Sales Training and Performance’, for their ground-breaking and highly-successful Client Development Programme (CDP) in partnership with Environmental Resources Management (ERM), the world’s largest pure-play sustainability consultancy.

The award, announced on 19 August 2021, was won for the implementation and success of Imparta & ERM’s Client Development Programme. The programme has been live since 2018, and has evolved and adapted to meet changing markets, business, client and talent needs.

Richard Barkey, the Founder and CEO of Imparta, said “We are extremely proud of our collaboration with ERM. This award is a recognition of the fantastic work the entire team have put in over the past three years. The Client Development Programme sets a high bar in terms of learner experience, coaching integration and the impact on commercial, customer and employee metrics. We look forward to more success as the programme grows to meet new needs and audiences in the future!”

“Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards in 2021 provide much-needed and well-deserved recognition to organizations that went above and beyond to support their stakeholders during the unprecedented disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Brandon Hall Group COO and leader of the HCM Excellence Awards Programme, Rachel Cooke.

Entries were evaluated by a panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group analysts and executives based upon these criteria: fit the need, design of the programme, functionality, innovation and overall measurable benefits.

Excellence Award winners are scheduled to be honoured at Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Excellence Conference, Feb. 1-3, 2022, at the Hilton West Palm Beach, Florida. Select winners also will serve as presenters in breakout sessions, sharing their leading practices during the conference.
