LTEN has released a new, digital issue of its LTEN Focus on Training magazine, spotlighting the winners and finalists of the 3rd Annual LTEN Excellence Awards. The magazine is available at www.L-TEN.org/Focus, featuring articles that detail the award-winning and award-nominated learning initiatives at organizations including Bayer, AstraZeneca, Biogen, Teva, Ferring, Siemens, Astellas, Grifols, Genentech, Janssen and Shire.
The special digital issue of LTEN Focus on Training introduces the award-winners and finalists in six categories, as well as the four winners in the LTEN Members of the Year categories. The awards were handed out on June 14, 2017, as part of the 46th LTEN Annual Conference in Nashville, TN. Categories for the awards spotlight both primary market companies and industry partner companies, including All-Star Teams, Emerging Leaders, Innovation (practitioner and provider), Industry Partnerships and Learning Content.
In addition to the winners and finalists in those categories, the issue also outlines the volunteer efforts of four LTEN Members of the Year. Those special honorees are Alison Quinn of Bristol-Myers Squibb and David Brin of Abbott winning the primary market awards and Derek Lundsten of Scrimmage and Shaun McMahon of Illuminate winning the provider awards.
Also included in the special issue is a column on “The Power of Recognition” from LTEN Board President Mary Myers and photo spreads that highlight the 46th LTEN Annual Conference, the Excellence Awards ceremony and a special poster session that further details the learning initiatives from some winners and finalists. The posters displayed at the annual conference can be viewed online at www.L-TEN.org/2017posters.
“Speaking on behalf of the LTEN leadership and staff, it’s our honor, for the third consecutive year now, to recognize the creativity, innovation and hard work that life sciences trainers and provider partners bring to their organizations and clients. Ultimately, the great work produced by LTEN members like this year’s honorees serves the patients and families who rely on innovations and expertise in all sectors of healthcare to improve their quality of life,” said Dawn Brehm, executive director of LTEN. “Whether it’s recognizing the partnerships that power training, the innovation and content that makes those efforts successful or the people who design, deliver and manage workforce development, the annual Excellence Awards issue of LTEN Focus on Training magazine is a great way to find inspiration for your own learning initiatives.”
Nominations for the 4th LTEN Excellence Awards – to be presented on June 13, 2018, at the 47th LTEN Annual Conference in Phoenix, AZ – will open soon at www.L-TEN.org.
