We are thrilled to announce that we have been awarded four Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards alongside our partners, Bayer and SweetRush.

The awards are a result of our participation in Bayer’s innovative Rise and Thrive program, a microlearning experience based on the idea that if you have two minutes, you have enough time to become a stronger, more empathetic, more inclusive leader. The experience comprises bite-sized content including short videos, curated articles, and 2-minute “dares.”

Rise and Thrive was pioneered by Bayer’s U.S. Learning Lead, Renee Landry, and Senior Leadership Expert, Rachel Lamb. The interactive experience was developed by e-learning development company SweetRush and supported with video and learning content by Third Factor.

Approximately half of Bayer’s 4,000 US leaders voluntarily participated in the program, which has received outstanding quantitative and qualitative feedback from participants as well as attention from the broader learning industry.

The awards include:

  • Gold: Best Advance in Custom Content
  • Gold: Best Unique or Innovative Learning and Development Program
  • Gold: Best Use of Video for Learning
  • Silver: Best Unique or Innovative Leadership Program
