Waterloo, ON—December 19, 2016—
Axonify, the company behind the world’s first Employee Knowledge Platform, today announced it has won two coveted Brandon Hall Group gold awards for excellence in the Best Advance in Unique Learning Technology category and the Best Advance in Learning Management Measurement/Business Impact Tools category.

Axonify combines an award-winning approach to microlearning with the fundamentals of brain science and innovative knowledge-on-demand capabilities to ensure employees are well-equipped to take the right actions on the job.

Axonify’s microlearning approach has enabled powerhouse brands such as Walmart, Toyota, Bloomingdale’s, and Johnson & Johnson to ensure that their employees have the critical knowledge they need to be top performers in the workplace.

“We congratulate our Technology Award winners, and also thank them for leading the way in designing and utilizing technologies that empower organizations to enhance—and in some cases transform—their organizations,” said Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program. “Our research shows that Human Capital Management technology is a primary driver of innovation, and our award-winning organizations serve as models of success.”

“Another significant finding of our research is the importance of optimizing the employee experience as a driver of engagement and retention,” said Brandon Hall Group CEO Mike Cooke. “The technology user experience plays an increasingly large role in shaping the employee experience, and these award winners are creating leading practices that deserve validation and recognition.”
