Archer Daniels Midland and Vector Solutions brand RedVector earn a coveted Brandon Hall Bronze Award for Excellence in Learning and Development for Personalized Construction and Maintenance Learning Programs

Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) and Vector Solutions, parent company to RedVector, a leader in eLearning and performance support solutions for the architecture, engineering, construction (AEC), industrial, facility management and IT industries, were awarded the coveted Brandon Hall Group Bronze Award for Excellence for Learning and Development in 2017.

Together, RedVector and ADM, one of the world’s largest agricultural processors and food ingredient providers, assessed training needs and deficiencies of ADM staff members and prescribed training plans for each construction and maintenance trade based on those needs. ADM’s Construction and Maintenance Training programs are Department of Labor Apprenticeship (DOL) and U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs GI Bill Educational benefits-certified.

In evaluating whether the program yielded operational improvements, ADM found an overall reduction of 33-40% in the number of safety incidents and is now approaching 0% downtime. The largest improvement, however, has been experienced in the behavioral change of the employees. Today, employees from observation can be seen applying the knowledge they have gained and meeting or exceeding the desired level of performance.

The implementation of the RedVector, a Vector Solutions brand, learning system and the resulting operational improvement earned the Brandon Hall Bronze Award in the “Best Results of a Learning Program” category for the submission titled “ADM Improves Operational Standards and Employee Performance with Vector Solutions’ Personalized Learning Programs.”

“To receive the Brandon Hall Excellence Award for the third consecutive year is an immense honor,” said Jeff Gordon, CEO of Vector Solutions. “The national recognition is a true testament to our dedication to, and success in, providing the very best performance support and learning technology. This award confirms that we are doing our job to help keep the everyday heroes of this country safe while creating more capable, more compliant organizations.”

“Excellence Award winners symbolize the power and impact that Human Capital Management (HCM) practices can have on a business or on any organization,” said Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program. “Many organizations can have great HCM initiatives, but the standard of excellence only applies for organizations whose HCM practices truly benefit the business.”
