Amsterdam, The Netherlands — April 20, 2022 — During the C3 Global Cloud Skills v-Tour the LLPA announced the winner and finalists of the Galileo Global Education Revolution Award. This award recognizes organizations that understand the importance of developing a learning culture to accelerate digital transformation. These organizations are leading the global education revolution by focusing on their people and organizational culture in unique ways to ensure employees are always applying new knowledge and skills to improve individual and organizational performance.
This awards program calls attention to organizations that have developed, implemented, or delivered exceptional learning programs and initiatives during the past year; presented by the LLPA, a consortium of leading training providers in more than 55 countries and sponsored by Pearson VUE. This year our judges from Microsoft, The LLPA Board and ROI Institute, Inc were met with inspiring and authentic nominations from multiple organizations across the globe.
“It is an honor to recognize the winner and finalists of the Galileo Global Education Revolution Award,” said Patrick Kersten, Chairman of the Board, The LLPA. “These organizations presented impressive learning initiatives that are successfully driving their digital transformation strategies – from high train-to-cert ratios to accelerating new cloud skills through bootcamps and tailored-made courses. In 2021 winning organization Capgemini trained more than 4,600 of its employees. They designed an initiative that combined skilling and certification of Azure cloud skills and achieved a 90% train-to-cert ratio within a 5-month period. I am proud to honor and congratulate our winner and finalists.
Capgemini Spain trained more than 4,600 of its employees in 2021. Together with their preferred training provider Netmind, they designed an initiative that combined skilling and certification of Azure cloud skills and achieved a 90% train-to-cert ratio within a 5-month period. The initiative was aimed at technicians who had no previous knowledge of the cloud world to help them gain the skills necessary to develop professionally and offer better services to Capgemini customers. “This initiative is part of our culture of continuous learning and professionalization of our employees’ knowledge” María Ángeles Garrido, HR Manager at Capgemini.
