02 Dec 2015

MYOB is delighted to win the Marshall Goldsmith Award for Talent Development at the 2015 Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI) Awards, announced in Sydney last night. Please see link here.

The prestigious accolade recognises excellence and innovation in talent development programs and initiatives. MYOB received the award for its successful creation and implementation of ‘Learning Lab’, delivering world class learning to MYOB’s 1200 employees.

Commenting on the win, Alla Keogh, Head of People and Performance, MYOB said: “We are delighted to win this award for Learning Lab. Learning Lab is a market leading, innovative program, and aligns with our goal of being a digital employer of choice, with the most engaged, productive and innovative employees in the technology industry across the region.”

Introduced in 2015, Learning Lab makes MYOB’s learning and development landscape accessible through a single e-portal. Learning Lab offers a host of online learning and development programs, allowing MYOB team members to experiment, learn and grow. It offers face to face workshops and experiences, thousands of online resources and expert coaches to enable MYOB employees to reach their full potential, inside and outside of work.

The program has received a 90 percent satisfaction score from MYOB’s staff members.

“Year on year, we’ve seen engagement lift across the board,” said Alla Keogh. “As we up-skill our leaders they have especially lifted the capability levels of the whole employee population. This has made a significant and positive difference to the culture within MYOB,” said Ms. Keogh. “It has also made a difference to the small training and development companies we partner with to deliver our programs. With a very small in-house team responsible for strategy, design and execution of learning, we leverage our partnerships with niche players in the learning and facilitation space to ensure our people receive the best and most up to date development possible”.

“Receiving this award from the AHRI means a lot to us, and recognises MYOB as the premier developer of talent in our market. I would like to thank the MYOB team for working tirelessly to ensure Learning Lab’s success.,” said Ms. Keogh.

The AHRI brings together industry leaders to celebrate excellence in the HR profession, recognising individuals, teams and companies for their outstanding achievements in people management. Other finalists in the Talent Development category were PWC, Lendlease, Downer Group, Telstra and Westpac.
