“Reduce the Spread of Viruses” is the first on-demand course launched by ACS Publications as part of the ACS Institute, a learning platform offering a broad collection of learning and training resources. The course, launched in October 2020, was developed by leading experts in the fields of infectious disease, medicinal chemistry, and healthcare. ACS, in partnership with Artisan E-Learning, was recognized by the Brandon Hall Group for excellence in developing this essential human capital management (HCM) course.
The 2021 Brandon Hall Group HCM Excellence Awards are given for work in learning and development, talent management, leadership development, talent acquisition, human resources, sales performance, diversity, equity and inclusion, and the future of work. ACS and Artisan E-Learning received a Brandon Hall Group Bronze Award for “Best Advance in Training Programs that Require Global Accessibility Standards.”
“We are proud to receive recognition for our dedication to creating accessible, online learning,” said Tammy Hanna, Ph.D., Director of New Product Innovation at ACS Publications. “Being recognized by the Brandon Hall Group underscores ACS’ commitment to ensuring all learners have equal and ready access to high-quality, online instruction to support their careers in chemistry and beyond.”
“Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards in 2021 provide much-needed and well-deserved recognition to organizations that went above and beyond to support their stakeholders during the unprecedented disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Brandon Hall Group Chief Operating Officer and leader of the HCM Excellence Awards Program Rachel Cooke. “The awards provide validation of best practices in all areas of HCM at a time when they have never been more important to employers, employees, and customers.”
Entries were evaluated by a panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group analysts, and executives based upon these criteria: fit the need, design of the program, functionality, innovation, and overall measurable benefits.
ACS would like to thank Artisan E-Learning for their partnership. We would also like to thank the subject matter expert Dr. Poonum Korpe, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, for her expertise and vision. Further thanks to the reviewers of Reduce the Spread of Viruses, Prof. Courtney Aldrich, KC Azavedo, RN, Dr. Jess Lewis, and Prof. Nouri Neamati.
Individuals interested in this course can gain access to it through the ACS Institute (ACS members receive a 20% discount). Organization-level deployment is available and allows the course to be easily integrated into existing learning management systems.
