Award Recognises Insurer’s Organisational Commitment to Client and Employee Learning
LONDON, UK—Commercial and industrial property insurer FM Global has been ranked internationally for its enterprise-wide client and employee learning and development program. The mutual insurer was recognised this month at the Association for Talent Development (ATD) 2014 BEST Awards, the talent development industry’s most rigorous and coveted recognition.
“Because engineering expertise is the most critical discipline at FM Global, it is a top priority to develop learning solutions around specific risk improvement topics,” according to the ATD. “The learning team's success is based on its ability to educate clients about property risk reduction and loss prevention through direct training and client service team interactions.”
Selection was based on quantitative and qualitative information that organisations submitted to the ATD about their learning and talent development practices and programs. Applications were assessed in a blind review by members of the BEST Awards advisory committee, a select group of experts in the field.
The BEST Award is the second honour received by FM Global this year for its commitment to enterprise-wide learning and development. In March, the insurer received a 2014 Innovation Award for its SimZone, a distinct 12,000-square-foot hands-on training facility that simulates property hazards located at FM Global’s Centre for Property Risk Solutions in Norwood, Mass., USA.
