TORONTO, Oct. 29, 2012 /CNW/ - BizLibrary, a leading employee training and development solutions provider for small and mid-sized companies, recently named Just Energy's employee training program as the 2012 Program of the Year. The award recognizes the successful development and implementation of Just Energy's integrated learning program.
A partner with BizLibrary since 2007, Just Energy ranked tops among 500+ clients for its strong collaboration to leverage technology and significantly alter the way the company delivers information and training to its staff. This included the migration of 85% of its training material to an online platform resulting in significant financial and environmental savings; convenient, remote access to courses, and the development of more customized content. Since 2007, employees across the Just Energy Group of companies have completed over 24,196 learning modules.
"We are thrilled to be the first employer in the province to be recognized by the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities to allow certification for a Customer Service Apprenticeship program," said Richard Early, Just Energy's Vice President of Human Resources." "It is a program made available through our BizLibrary-enabled LMS (Learning Management System). With BizLibrary, we have added a depth and breadth of learning enablement that fulfills an important core value for us as an organization. We are committed to providing an empowering and supportive workplace that facilitates personal growth and development for every one of our employees."
"We are extremely pleased to recognize Just Energy for successfully implementing its integrated learning program," said Shannon Kluczny, Vice President of Client Services at BizLibrary. "While all three of our finalists deserved recognition for their achievements, we felt that Just Energy's outstanding success was a true demonstration of the rewards received when BizLibrary's training programs have been successfully implemented."
"Just Energy's success is a remarkable example of what BizLibrary's training can do for a company when implemented by hardworking individuals like Just Energy's employees," said Dean Pichee, BizLibrary President and CEO. "We have been incredibly lucky to work with Just Energy's training staff, and we are proud to share their stories of success."
