BorgWarner has won a coveted Brandon Hall Group gold award in the category of Excellence in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and a silver award in the Excellence in Learning category. BorgWarner’s wins were announced on Aug. 19 during a live webinar hosted by Brandon Hall Group.
The company’s gold award for Excellence in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion honors the success of BorgWarner’s Women in Leadership development program aimed at accelerating the pace of development of talent, building the talent pool for key roles within the company and advancing company culture as it relates to inclusion.
BorgWarner’s silver award for Excellence in Learning recognizes the company’s ‘One BorgWarner – The Employee Experience’ training program where more than 7,500 new employees who joined BorgWarner after its acquisition of Delphi Technologies in 2020 were trained virtually in the midst of the pandemic.
Brandon Hall Group operates the largest and longest running awards program in Human Capital Management. As an independent HCM research and analyst firm they conduct studies in Learning and Development, Talent Management, Leadership Development, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, Talent Acquisition and HR/Workforce Management.
“I’m incredibly proud of what our team has been able to accomplish over the past year – a year that has undoubtedly presented more personal and professional challenges than most of us have experienced in our lifetime,” said Felecia Pryor, executive vice president and chief human resources officer, BorgWarner Inc. “Our team not only survived but they thrived, they worked to integrate with new team members, nearly doubling the size of our organization and they managed to put in place programs that will grow the talents of many of our colleagues, benefitting us today as well as in the future. We appreciate Brandon Hall Group for their recognition of our team’s persistence and dedication to success.”
“Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards in 2021 provide much-needed and well-deserved recognition to organizations that went above and beyond to support their stakeholders during the unprecedented disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Brandon Hall Group COO and leader of the HCM Excellence Awards Program Rachel Cooke. “The awards provide validation of best practices in all areas of HCM at a time when they have never been more important to employers, employees and customers.”
Entries were evaluated by a panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group analysts and executives based upon these criteria: fit the need, design of the program, functionality, innovation and overall measurable benefits.
Excellence Award winners are scheduled to be honored at Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Excellence Conference, Feb. 1-3, 2022, at the Hilton West Palm Beach, Florida. Select winners also will serve as presenters in breakout sessions, sharing their leading practices during the conference.
“We added several awards categories this year to specifically address critical needs, including how organizations addressed the new dynamics of work and embedded the principles of diversity, equity and inclusion in their HCM practices,” Brandon Hall Group CEO Mike Cooke said. “Winning organizations in all categories demonstrated a people-centric approach while driving superior business results under challenging and unprecedented conditions. Demonstrating HCM’s impact on the business is what sets our awards apart.
