December 07, 2017

Dallas, TX – December 7, 2017 – Associa, the industry’s largest community management company, brings home the Learning Technology Award from the Association for Talent Development (ATD) 2017 AXIS Gala. The Learning Technology Award is presented to companies that are at the top of their field in applying new technology or using technology in an innovative way to address specific learning needs.

The AXIS Gala is an annual event celebrating community leaders who pave the way in talent development. AXIS recognizes the excellent work being done in organizations across the Dallas–Fort Worth area and the professionals who are committed to developing an organization’s most important resource – its people.

In 2012, Associa launched a transformation initiative to develop and implement a standardized operational model across the organization.  Associa’s Talent Development team was tasked with building a culture of learning that would support this transformation. Associa designed a comprehensive approach that included multiple learning methodologies such as micro-learning modules which replaced traditional instructor-led courses and utilized Degreed, Associa’s online learning platform, for employees to access both internal and external learning tools.

“This work has played an important role in helping achieve some critical milestones and recognitions, including a significant increase in financial performance and client retention in 2016 as well as earning a Great Place to Work designation for 2017,” stated Chelle O’Keefe, Associa executive vice president and chief human resources officer. “It is an honor to receive this award and we are excited to see the continued development and accomplishments of our employees.”
