ASTD Excellence in Practice Awards Accepting Nominations


Wed Jul 11 2012


ASTD’s Excellence in Practice Awards is now accepting nominations. The Excellence in Practice Awards recognizes results achieved through the use of solutions from the entire scope of workplace learning and performance.   

Accomplishments will be recognized at two levels:

  • Awards: Presented to practices that have demonstrated clear and measurable results of achieving organizational goals, meet a demonstrated need, have appropriate design values, and are clearly aligned with other performance improvement initiatives.

  • Citations: Presented to practices that have yet to demonstrate clear and measurable results, but that have strong evaluation plans, meet a demonstrated need, and have appropriate design values. Citation winners are encouraged to seek an Excellence in Practice Award in a subsequent year.
