And The Winners Are...

Training magazine reveals the winners of its inaugural crowd-sourced vendor awards program: the 2019 Training Magazine Network Choice Awards.

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for… drum roll, please! Training magazine is proud to announce the winners of the 2019 Training Magazine Network Choice Awards—Training’s inaugural crowd-sourced vendor awards program.

Training Magazine Network (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, we invited TMN’s 147,000-plus-member community to cast their votes for the vendor partners they find to provide the most effective tools and solutions for their work, in five categories:

• Authoring Tools

• Custom Content/Program Development

• Gamification

• Learning Portal/Learning Management System (LMS)

• Measurement, Testing, and Assessment

An alphabetical list in each of the five 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 August 22-October 31, 2019. Nearly 3,400 votes were cast by 1,253 unique respondents for 310 companies. Participants could submit a survey ballot in as many of the five 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.

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