NEW YORK, March 24, 2016 – LRN has won two awards for videos in the non-broadcast production category of the 37th Annual Telly Awards. The company, which helps organizations around the world meet their compliance obligations, shape ethical behavior and foster internal cultures inspired by values and purpose, secured a silver award – the highest honor – for its “Walk a Mile: A Discrimination and Harassment Vignette,” as well as a bronze award for “Monster at Work: A Workplace Bullying Vignette.” These wins, chosen from nearly 12,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, mark LRN’s sixth and seventh Telly Award accolades.
For over 20 years, LRN has been a champion of ethical culture as a hallmark of the most effective compliance programs, and has a long history of innovation in ethics and compliance education. Each of the award-winning vignettes illustrates an ethical principle or compliance challenge through brief, engaging snapshots that increase recall and learning effectiveness for viewers while emphasizing values-based and principled decision making. “Walk a Mile” tackles discrimination and harassment, while “Monster at Work” explores the issue of bullying at the office.
“LRN is honored to be the recipient of two Telly Award wins this year,” said Jean-Marc Levy, President of LRN. “These awards are a reflection of our ongoing commitment to develop innovative solutions for our partner community. We’re proud that the creativity and dedication of our production and educational design teams has once again been recognized by the prestigious Telly Award community.”
