Mercuri International & Johnson Controls tar Guld på 2021 års Brandon Hall Group HCM Excellence Awards

Mercuri International och Johnson Controls har tillsammans vunnit ett eftertraktat Brandon Hall Group-pris i kategorin ”Excellence in Sales Performance”. Deras gemensamma vinst tillkännagavs den 19 augusti 2021. Vinnarna listas här.

Mercuri International vann priset tillsammans med Johnson Controls, den globala ledaren för smarta, hälsosamma och hållbara byggnader för deras samarbete kring deras Middle East & Africa Sales Excellence Academy som bygger på, av Mercuri International, väl beprövad frågeteknik, anpassad för att passa Johnson Controls specifika behov.

“Our close partnership with Johnson Controls has shown the demonstrable value of precisely focused sales training techniques, resulting in measurable increases in size of deal and radically reduced timescales for deal closing. This award recognizes the hard work and commitment to improvement from both companies – and is especially gratifying given the challenging conditions of the last two years.” Frank Herbertz, President och CEO, Mercuri International Group.

Ursprungligen skapades programmet för lärande levererat i klassrumsformat kring kärnämnena, Sales Skills, Product Fluency och Sales Process. Sedan pandemin började har dock akademin förvandlats till ett helt digitalt virtuellt format.

“We are proud to receive a Gold Award by the Brandon Hall Group which benchmarks our success against leading corporations around the world that have successfully deployed programs, strategies, processes, and tools with measurable results. The MEA Sales Academy was launched with a vision to create a top-class sales curricula for our frontline sellers and this unique tailored program has trained over 6000 registered learners since 2019, ensuring we develop talent that is highly engaged and eager to innovate and create a future powered by our OpenBlue digital solutions.” Mais Salameh, Director Sale & Marketing, Middle East & Africa, Johnson Controls.

“Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards in 2021 provide much-needed and well deserved recognition to organizations that went above and beyond to support their stakeholders during the unprecedented disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic,” sa Brandon Hall Group COO och chef för HCM Excellence Awards Program Rachel Cooke. “The awards provide validation of best practices in all areas of HCM at a time when they have never been more important to employers, employees and customers.”

De tävlande utvärderades av en panel av oberoende seniora branschexperter, Brandon Hall Group-analytiker och chefer baserat på dessa kriterier: passande behov, design av programmet, funktionalitet, innovation och övergripande mätbara fördelar.

Vinnarna av Excellence Award är planerade att hedras vid Brandon Hall Groups HCM Excellence Conference, 1-3 februari 2022, på Hilton West Palm Beach, Florida. Utvalda vinnare kommer också att fungera som talare i breakout sessions och dela med sig av sina framgångsrika arbetssätt under konferensen.

“We added several awards categories this year to specifically address critical needs, including how organizations addressed the new dynamics of work and embedded the principles of diversity, equity and inclusion in their HCM practices,” säger Brandon Hall Group CEO Mike Cooke. “Winning organizations in all categories demonstrated a people centric approach while driving superior business results under challenging and unprecedented conditions. Demonstrating HCM’s impact on the business is what sets our awards apart.”
