Minneapolis, MN (September 6, 2023)—Training magazine unveiled the winners of the 2023 Training Magazine Network Choice Awards—a crowd-sourced vendor awards program that recognizes outstanding training products and solutions.

Training Magazine Network (TMN) is a free Training and Learning and Development (L&D) member community, giving members 24/7 access to free training tools, Webinars, and other valuable resources. TMN has always been a highly engaged and vocal community, as evidenced by the chat conversations and peer learning happening before, during, and after TMN Webinars. In an effort to tap into this highly experienced community’s expertise and “share what works” with all of Training’s audiences, each year, Training invites TMN’s 56,000-plus engaged member community to cast their votes for the vendor partners they find to provide the most effective tools and solutions for their work, in six categories:

  • Authoring Tools
  • Custom Content/Program Development
  • Gamification
  • Leadership Development
  • Learning Portal/Learning Management System (LMS)
  • Measurement, Testing & Assessment

An alphabetical list in each of the six categories was compiled based on Training magazine and Training Magazine Network’s own industry data and research and included vendor companies that both have and have not done business or partnered with Training magazine and its affiliates. Voters also had the opportunity to enter a preferred vendor product or solution if the tool they wished to rank was not listed.

The voting was held online March 15-June 15, 2023. Some 4,734 votes were cast by 1,886 unique respondents for 473 companies. Participants could submit a survey ballot in as many of the six categories as were applicable to them, but only one ballot per voter per category was permitted; multiple employees from the same company were permitted to vote. Winners were determined by a combination of the total number of votes received and an average weighted score based on effectiveness. Because of this determination, there is not a set number of winners per category.

“Many thanks to all of the Training Magazine Network members who voted for sharing your valuable knowledge and experience around an array of training products, tools, services, and solutions—we couldn’t do this without you!” says Training magazine Editor and Publisher Lorri Freifeld. “Kudos to the 2023 Training Magazine Network winners! Your best-in-class solutions and innovation help the L&D industry deliver and measure vital learning effectively every day.”

“With thousands of new members joining Training Magazine Network every month, we’re glad to see them participating in our Choice Awards program and sharing their expertise,” adds Training Magazine Network VP of Communities Gary Van Antwerp. “The whole community benefits when they share their experience in using a variety of vendor solutions.”

In tandem with the Choice Awards, TMN compiles an online directory, which highlights the Training Magazine Network Choice Award winners and is updated with new honorees each year. Visit:
