PRESS RELEASE: Double Silver Awards for Sysdoc at Brandon Hall
Now entering its 23rd year, the Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards Program is the world’s most significant learning awards programme and is known as “the Academy Awards of learning, talent and business executives”. The awards attract entries from around the globe including internationally recognised brands, including General Motors, Bank of America, Boeing, Pfizer, and Royal Dutch Shell.
In the UK, the silver award in the Best Learning Program Supporting a Change Transformation Business Strategy category, is for JLR’s Supplier Technical Assistance (STA) eEnablement programme.
JLR embarked on a digital transformation programme to significantly improve the way engineers work with suppliers. This involved transformation from a legacy system managed through spreadsheets and multiple offline dependencies to an online, digital and mobile solution.
Sysdoc, as the solution partner, collaborated with JLR to provide an integrated change and training programme, which involved supporting the future of work through:
- Applying simple, effective learning methods that replicated the use of mobile devices in a high risk work environment.
- Providing a highly stimulating learning environment that closely complemented the themes of the digital transformation undertaken.
- Creating and delivering a sustainable global learning program.
Sysdoc’s Head of Learning Innovation, Andrew Darwin, said “We are very proud of what we have achieved through our partnership with JLR and to have this recognised at an international level. This award celebrates JLR's commitment to investing in its people and adopting modern, innovative methods to implement game changing digital transformation programs across the organisation.”

Sysdoc in New Zealand was also awarded silver for Best Learning Team for our insource training team at Fonterra, which provides an agile, high quality and seamless service as well as access to the newest innovations in learning.
“This award is a remarkable achievement that cannot be understated and is a testament to the skills and dedication our small 17-member team,” says Charmaine Taylor, Learning Solutions Manager, Fonterra Cooperative Group Ltd.
Peter Auckram, Team Lead for Sysdoc at Fonterra, says the award recognises the joint team is “at the top of the game”.
Auckram said, “Our strategy is to keep on top of the technological and latest learning methodologies curve through attendance at conferences and investment in R&D and to ensure that everything we do makes a measurable difference to Fonterra.”
Winning a Brandon Hall Group Excellence Award means an organisation is an elite innovator within Human Capital Management (HCM),” says said Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program. “An award signifies that an organisation’s work represents a leading practice in that HCM function and the achievement is also notable because of the positive impact their work in HCM has on business results. All award winners have to demonstrate a measurable benefit to the business, not just the HCM operation.”
The awards ceremony will be held at the Brandon Hall Human Capital Management Excellence Conference in Florida in January 2018.

Keeping it on the DL - Sysdoc Digital Learning Vlog with Special Guest #VLOG2
Our vlog officially has a name, 'Keeping it on the DL', well on digital learning that is! Sarah Vaughan and Spencer Holmes are back again for our second vlog this year with Matt Nightingale. The wonderful thing we are discovering about these vlogs is that they meander off into different topics and we soon realised the impact it all has on each other. Steering away from the typical Q&A set up, we want to have open discussions with our guest speakers so we can create a meaningful and thought provoking discussion.
Is a democratised leadership the ‘new normal’ in a Covid world?
March 2020 saw an enforced move to distributed working which for many organisations was a significant shift from normal operational ways of working. Whilst over the last few years we have seen organisations increasingly moving to more flexible working models for their staff, these policies have normally been developed by the HR function and, for some, have perhaps been seen as a necessity to comply with legislation rather than a genuine commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion and the richness that ensuring this type of flexibility can afford an organisation in terms of attraction, performance, innovation, improved customer service and staff retention. Though, arguably, the equality, diversity and inclusion agenda has gained more focus with the recent Black Lives Matter movement which has forced organisations to make some tough self-assessments in this space. What about part-time and flexible working? How many organisations had a significant number of men working part-time or members of staff working 100% remotely? Probably very few.
Celebrate Certification Day 2020: Sysdoc Graduate, Aimée Le Déaut-Griffin
As a fresh out of university graduate with a Business Studies and Information Management degree (team Loughborough!), I wasn’t quite sure the direction my career would take me. My time at university gave me an overview of everything from Finance to Marketing, including bits of IT and the more I attended Graduate Assessment Centres I realised just how vast the working world was. Sysdoc was just one of the organisations that I interviewed with but after meeting with CEO Clare Hill to chat about the role I jumped whole heartedly into the start of my career with Sysdoc. I recall feeling instantly part of the family, even during my interview, and found the core values of the company motivating. Equally, as a young woman, I found the idea of not one, but two female senior leaders to be inspiring.
