Launchfire Wins Silver Brandon Hall Group Excellence in Learning Award

OTTAWA, ON September 13, 2017 --  Launchfire, a game-based training and marketing company, has won a Brandon Hall Group silver award for excellence in the games and simulations for learning category.

Digital Service Hero is a game-based learning program designed for corporate partners that trains employees on digital products. The program includes game-based learning modules, product simulations, and customer role-play scenarios, all hosted within a gamified hub. Employees are challenged to “level up” for a chance to move up on the company leaderboard.

Digital Service Hero is an exciting project -- one that continues to grow. Our team worked hard to make this program what it is and we couldn’t be happier with the results.

AJ Pratt, co-founder Launchfire

Excellence Award winners symbolize the power and impact that Human Capital Management practices can have on a business or on any organization. Many organizations can have great HCM initiatives, but the standard of excellence only applies for organizations whose HCM practices truly benefit the business. That’s what the Excellence Awards program stands for, and that is what Brandon Hall Group stands for.

Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program

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 measurable benefits.

Launchfire’s win was announced on September 7, 2017. The winners are listed at: http://www.brandonhall.com/excellenceawards/past-winners.php

Excellence Award winners will be honored at Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Excellence Conference January 31 – February 2, 2018, at the PGA National Resort in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Selected winners also will serve as presenters in the more than 20 breakout sessions during the 3 1⁄2-day event.

Our conference is unique because most of our presenters are Excellence Awards winners. These are executives and directors of world-class organizations who have done the hard work necessary to drive business results through learning, talent management, leadership development, talent acquisition, and workforce management. They have compelling stories to tell that you cannot get anywhere else.
