Wilmington, N.C. — May 1, 2019 —Proficient Learning, LLC has been named a finalist in Industry Partnership in LTEN Excellence Awards, honoring best-in-class learning and development initiatives within the life sciences. LTEN will name the 2019 award winners at the 48th LTEN Annual Conference (www.LTENconference.com), the largest gathering of life science trainers and educators in the United States taking place in Grapevine, Texas on Wednesday, June 5.

The Industry Partnership category recognizes suppliers for their work, either via whole or partially outsourced services, content development, and delivery or training, in support of an organization’s learning and development function in the past year. The project Proficient Learning submitted that gained the finalist nomination was to develop and implement a tailored coaching system and Field Coaching Report system within the pharmaceutical division of a global healthcare company. After conducting an in-depth analysis, the teams worked together to roll out a customized version of the Proficient Learning COACH™ model, including COACH Excellence Training, and the mCoach® mobile coaching platform (for convenient in-field use). The implementation has positively transformed the way the pharmaceutical sales team collaborates to enhance sales performance, resulting in increased field coaching and engagement, well-defined field expectations, and consistent coaching among managers. This project received complete top-down buy-in throughout the organization.

The LTEN Excellence Awards is the premier awards program in the United States recognizing innovation and leadership within the life sciences training and development community. Through the LTEN Excellence Awards competition, practitioners and suppliers enter learning initiatives and training content in various categories for recognition of excellence. Finalists are selected by a diverse group of experienced judges and, from that group of finalists, one winner from each category is awarded.

“We’re so excited to be acknowledged for our partnership with customers,” says Marcy Lantzy, Proficient Learning VP, Innovation and Marketing. “Developing long-term strategic partnerships with our customers  is our top priority resulting in the best solutions based on their evolving needs,” she adds.

The LTEN Excellence Awards was designed and developed in partnership with the LTEN Advisory Council. The judging panel was comprised of experienced professionals working in the life sciences education and training field.
