Blue Ocean Brain, a leading provider of workplace microlearning and diversity, equity, and inclusion content, has won a coveted Silver Brandon Hall Group award in their Spring 2022 Excellence in Human Capital Management (HCM) Program - for Best Learning Program that Supports and Promotes Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
The award entry, titled Building Inclusion and Equity Across the Modern Healthcare System, was focused on Blue Ocean Brain's work with Atlantic Health System to advance their diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives through microlearning opportunities that reach and engage all healthcare employees around DEI concepts such as allyship, inclusive leadership, and psychological safety.
Atlantic Health System recognized the need for a learning solution that provided the level of access, engagement, and retention needed to achieve cultural change in support of their DEI goals. Atlantic Health partnered with Blue Ocean Brain to meet the needs of its large and time-constrained workforce and redefine how learning moments are consumed and delivered in healthcare. Blue Ocean Brain's just-in-time content allowed Atlantic Health's workforce to upskill around DEI while also accessing lessons on mental health and resilience, critical tools to help them prioritize self-care while navigating the pandemic frontlines.
"Excellence Award winners distinguish themselves through their growing understanding that all the functions of HCM are integrated and must work together to move businesses forward,” said Brandon Hall Group Chief Operating Officer Rachel Cooke, leader of the HCM Excellence Awards program. “It is a pleasure to see more organizations collaborating across functions and getting more sophisticated and accomplished at delivering measurable benefit through ground-breaking HCM practices,” she said. "For example, it was inspiring to see how diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives are increasingly embedded into people and business strategies and cultures. We saw more alignment between HCM and business objectives than ever before.”
A panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, and Brandon Hall Group senior analysts and executives evaluated the entries based upon the following criteria:
- Fit the need
- Design of the program
- Overall measurable benefits
