BTS, a world-leading strategy implementation firm, has won Gold in the prestigious Asia-Pacific Stevie® Awards for their Changr app. Changr is a comprehensive platform designed to help employees take actions in alignment with the business strategy. Whether it is after a strategic business initiative or a training program, Changr enables employees to stay accountable for actions, get input from peers, and have their learning become individualized.
“Winning the category ‘Innovation in Education or Training Apps’ is very exciting for us and a strong testament to the success we’re seeing with Changr in Asia and across the world. Changr makes it easy to hold employees accountable to take the right actions, while the tracking and measurement features clearly show the impact these actions have on the organization,” says Patrick Fei, Managing Director, BTS Asia.
Changr is built to bring together the four key stakeholder teams that are involved in people development: Executives, HR, Managers, and Employees. The app accelerates the rate of change in a business by digitally connecting each of these stakeholders to the overall learning journey.
“The new version of Changr is extremely straightforward to customize to fit a company’s strategy and people development approach. The interactive and easy-to-use interface is designed to minimize time spent on navigating the app so more time can be spent on the activities that matter the most for employee and business success,” explains Jamie Dunbar-Smyth, Head of Product.
There are various tools in the Changr app. For example, Action Planning is where users create their goals, link them to the corporate strategy, and set due dates, which the app will use to send push notifications and ask for status updates. These updates can be shared with peers who can like and comment on them and link via email. In the Forum area, employees can post topics, add pictures and documents, and create polls. Private conversations can be held by using tags that then notify only the selected users. Finally, the actions are measured to understand how they impact the strategy.
Changr is currently available in 19 interface languages and content can be launched in any language.
This award marks the fourth that BTS has won so far in 2017.
