Elearning! Recognizes Oracle for Leadership in Learning and Talent Management

Oracle Learn Cloud Service Achieves an Award of Excellence for Talent Management and Oracle Named in the Learning100! Awards

Redwood Shores, Calif. – September 19, 2013

News Summary

Talent is the key differentiator that allows businesses to prosper and succeed, yet effectively uniting a workforce around core competencies, goals and values can be difficult, particularly when talent is divided by geography, language and culture. To secure a competitive edge, savvy businesses are using innovative technologies to streamline talent management and learning across their global operations. As evidence of Oracle’s leadership in HR technology and its own internal use of learning best practices, Elearning! honored Oracle with prestigious awards in its annual Learning100! and Best of Elearning! 2013 Awards. This marked the first time one organization was a finalist for both awards in the same year.
