SAN FRANCISCO, CA – The Association for Talent Development (ATD) has recognized BTS and Publicis Health with an Excellence in Practice Award in the Learning and Development category. ATD’s Excellence in Practice Awards are a global competition, recognizing exceptional accomplishments across the scope of talent development initiatives. This year, ATD received over 200 submissions from 10 countries, with only 44 programs receiving recognition.
The winning initiative, Mission 650, of which BTS developed specific business acumen, innovation, and leadership development components, is an annual learning program run for people managers at Publicis Health. The unique learning curriculum is a “choose your own adventure” experience that empowers employees to define their purpose and mission, and select from a menu of offerings that align to their current development needs.
“BTS is delighted to share this recognition with Publicis Health. The BTS team greatly enjoyed collaborating with the Publicis Health team to create the award-winning initiative and are extremely proud of the impact Mission 650 has had on the organization over the past two years,” says Andrew Martel, Principal at BTS.
The complete list of winners will be announced at the ATD 2018 International Conference & Exposition on May 8.
This marks the first award BTS has won in 2018, following 17 award wins in 2017.
