The Training Associates and the Girl Scouts to Accept the Brandon Hall Group Gold Award for Best Results of a Learning Program

The Training Associates Corporation, the recognized global leader of Learning & Development (L&D) talent and solutions, announced today with its client, the Girl Scouts, that they will be accepting the Brandon Hall Group Gold Award for Best Results of a Learning Program. The award acknowledges the Girl Scouts' successful leadership program, developed by The Training Associates, which fostered a critical change in organizational behavior and culture. The award will be accepted at the Human Capital Management Excellence Conference 2018 awards gala on February 1.

"One of the greatest achievements of our organizational transformation is to see firsthand the professional growth by our staff," said Susan Douglas, CEO at the Girl Scouts of Kentucky's Wilderness Road Council. What began as a sales training initiative, turned into a leadership development opportunity that transformed the Council's legacy culture with low morale, fleeting accountability, and chaos into a culture of collaboration, empowerment, and transparency.

"We're proud to work with the Girl Scouts to drive the positive change in their workplace culture and to influence the future growth of the Council," said Maria Melfa, President and CEO at The Training Associates. "Our mission is to provide measurable L&D strategies for clients and this award is an example of the impact our training solutions have on transforming an organization."

In collaboration with The Training Associates, the Council built a workplace culture of inspiration by implementing strategies to nurture the professional growth and retention of employees. Included in the comprehensive L&D program were employee needs assessment and multi-generational evaluation tools, leadership development tools, behavioral coaching models/techniques, and strengths assessment.

In addition to participating in the awards ceremony, Susan Douglas, as well as Angie Tinch, Chief of Staff, will partner with Kisha Dixon from The Training Associates to share their organization's approach and results at the 2018 Human Capital Management Excellence Conference. The session is titled The Girl Scouts and The Training Associates Partnership - Transformational Lessons in Leadership. The Human Capital Management Excellence Conference and Awards Gala is being held January 31 - February 2 at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
