Judges selected the winners from over 150 submitted nominations.
This year’s winners included executives and industry-leading learning companies from across the United States, as well as international finalists from Canada, Denmark, England, France, the Netherlands and Switzerland.

The Partnership Award recognizes Scrimmage and its global pharmaceutical client, AstraZeneca. The Oncology Training & Development department partnered with Scrimmage to create a modern learning technology experience for 1,600 learners that translated into 98 percent engagement, 50 percent shorter time to sales readiness and an initial $1.35M+ in cost savings, particularly due to new mobile, administrative and back-end efficiencies.
