CADD Microsystems Awarded Bronze for Best Use of Blended Learning by the Brandon Hall Group

Sep 23, 2016

Clients using both CADD Community and classroom training benefit from continual education, reinforcement and collaboration to develop employees

CADD Microsystems, a nationally recognized authority on technology solutions in the design, build and operate community, has won a coveted Brandon Hall Group bronze award for excellence in the blended learning category. CADD Microsystems’ win was announced on September 7th, 2016.

CADD Microsystems submitted its GeT Bundled program, which pairs its live, instructor-led classroom training with on-demand CADD Community resources to deliver a powerful professional development program that ensures the sustained success of its students and clients.

This solution forms the backbone of CADD Microsystems’ own professional development philosophy - that true success results from a continual emphasis on education, reinforcement and collaboration.

“We discovered that the combination of live, in-person training and on-demand resources really amplifies the knowledge transfer,” said Susan Thomson, CFO of CADD Microsystems. “Not all customers have the same learning and education needs, and our blended learning solution gives us more flexibility in creating custom solutions that uniquely address each of our clients’ professional development goals.”

The CADD Community was developed from a vision to provide customers access to not only on-demand training, but also a wealth of knowledge and resources built over more than 25 years in the industry. This vision came to fruition through a partnership with Global eTraining, the world’s leading technical training platform for on-demand Autodesk training.

“We’re not just helping our customers train their employees,” explained Thomson. “We are helping them recruit quality people, retain their employees, and open up new business opportunities. These are all proven benefits of corporate development programs and we are so proud to be delivering this to our customers.”

As an exclusive benefit to its clients, CADD Microsystems’ GeT Bundled program couples its classroom training with access to the CADD Community and Global eTraining’s corresponding on-demand course for one year. The CADD Community is also available as a stand-alone solution to manage and customized clients’ professional development programs.

“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.
