NEW YORK--()--Choice Logistics, the leading provider of enterprise-grade supply-chain solutions, today announced that it has been named to Elearning! Magazine’s list of the top 100 learning organizations in the world for the fourth year in a row, climbing from number 40 to number 17 in the magazine's ranking. “Being ranked in the top 20 is an honor for our organization, and demonstrates that although we are a rather small, privately held organization, we can play with the likes of Salesforce, Facebook, Amazon, and Cisco,” stated Anne Yarmark, EVP of HR & Administration. The company received the 2016 Learning! 100 Award in the Collaboration category.

The Elearning! Media Group’s (EMG) Learning! 100 Awards recognize the top 100 organizations for their best-in-class learning and development programs, enabling a learning culture that creates outstanding organizational performance. The Learning! 100 is a research-based program that provides organizations a benchmark for future development; is quantitative and qualitative; and is unbiased by size of the organization. Learning! 100 applicants are evaluated on three sets of criterion: EMG’s Learning Culture Index, Collaborative Strategies’ Innovation & Collaboration Ratings, and overall organizational performance. Every submission is evaluated on the same criterion, and ranked accordingly.

Choice Logistics formalized its Organizational Development and Training department in 2009 to focus on employee engagement through development and training. In 2015, Choice made a concerted effort to improve collaboration by rolling out Salesforce across the organization. There were many goals with this program, but the overarching one was improving visibility and collaboration across the organization. Visibility into what the organization, departments, and individuals are doing improves collaboration. Choice removed a culture of silos and replaced it with a culture of collaboration. In this more collaborative environment, employees are not only sharing information, they are also more aware of the impact and connection points their roles have on the organization overall. A key component of Choice’s core values is to educate one another. “The results of the Salesforce implementation are far reaching. Breaking down silos not only improves internal operations, communication, and collaboration, it strengthens our client and partner relationships and improves their overall satisfaction with Choice. It also positively affects employee engagement and morale,” stated Kate Kearney, Director of Organizational Development & Training who accepted the award on Choice’s behalf. “It is an amazing accomplishment to have increased our ranking so significantly within such a short period of time. Anne Yarmark, Kate Kearney, and the entire Human Resources team should be proud of this accomplishment since it has a huge impact on employees and the client experience,” commented Michael Katz, CEO.
