Elearning experts have recognised the importance of creativity and innovation in driving the industry forward by naming Sponge as Outstanding Learning Organisation of the Year.
The judges at the 2015 Elearning Awards singled out the bespoke elearning provider as ‘a mould-breaker’ and described the firm as ‘a strong and vibrant company which is clearly on a roll.’
The award follows Sponge’s 2014 win for Elearning Development Company of the Year.
Louise Pasterfield, Managing Director at Sponge, said: “Elearning is changing and Sponge is at the forefront of this transformation.
“In partnership with our clients, we’re focussed on finding the most effective ways of making a tangible difference for learners. The award recognises this commitment to pushing the boundaries so we increase the impact of elearning in the workplace. We’re thrilled to be singled out in such a competitive year and I’d like to thank the Sponge team for their hard work.”
The Elearning Awards are the biggest in the industry and recognise the best in learning technology and elearning.
The title of Outstanding Learning Organisation is awarded for evidence of strong, continuous results, organisational excellence, proven achievement, a strategic approach to growth and an innovative approach to future success.
The official awards citation said:
“Sponge is coming of age and has really made its mark in 2015. The company is a mould-breaker in every sense; based in Plymouth, family-owned and female-led. Creativity and innovation are at its heart, and that word, absorbing; the idea that if elearning is engaging and relevant people will absorb what they need to know. The business has tripled in size in three years and seen a big increase in the number of new clients in 2015. Always generous in sharing ideas, Sponge is an inspiring example of what can be achieved through a passion for learning.”
The 2015 Elearning Awards took place on Wednesday, November 25 at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel in London and were presented by comedian and broadcaster, Phill Jupitus.
