Franklin Covey Co. Named a Winner of Prestigious 2020 Training Magazine Network Choice Award

Training Magazine’s Community Votes to Recognize FranklinCovey for Outstanding Leadership Development Solutions, Products and Training

SALT LAKE CITY--()--Franklin Covey Co. (NYSE:FC), a global firm specializing in organizational performance improvement, has been named by Training magazine as a winner of a prestigious 2020 Training Magazine Network Choice Award for its outstanding leadership development solutions, products and training. Members of Training magazine’s community cast votes to recognize FranklinCovey in the leadership development category for providing the most effective tools and solutions for their work, as part of Training’s crowd-sourced vendor awards program.

Training Magazine Network (TMN) is a free Training and Learning and Development (L&D) member community, giving members 24/7 access to free training tools, webinars, and other valuable resources. TMN has always been a highly engaged and vocal community. To tap into this highly experienced community’s expertise and share “what works” with all of Training’s audiences—particularly during the pandemic as organizations have been forced to pivot to virtual and mobile training—Training invited TMN’s 172,000-plus-member community to cast their votes for the vendor partners they find to provide the most effective tools and solutions for their work, in six categories:

  • Authoring Tools
  • Customer Content/Program Development
  • Gamification
  • Leadership Development
  • Learning Portal/Learning Management System (LMS)
  • Measurement, Testing, and Assessment

Some 6,441 votes were cast by 2,946 unique respondents for 459 companies. Participants could submit a survey ballot in as many of the six categories as were applicable to them, but only one ballot per voter per category was permitted; multiple employees from the same company were permitted to vote. Winners were determined by a combination of the total number of votes received and an average weighted score based on effectiveness.

Paul Walker, FranklinCovey President and Chief Operating Officer, said, “We are delighted that our leadership development solutions, products and training are so exceptionally well-received by members of the Training magazine community, many of whom are clients, who cast their votes on our behalf. We are also pleased to be recognized with such a prestigious award by an industry influencer such as Training. We are committed to ensuring that all of the solutions we offer address our client’s most pressing business needs, especially in these uncertain times. And we are honored to partner with thousands of organizations that find great value in having unprecedented access to this comprehensive collection of world-class solutions through our All Access Pass®.”

“With this being only the second year for the Training Magazine Network Choice Awards, we were thrilled that we doubled the number of votes and unique respondents,” said Training magazine Publisher Lori Gardner. “This was such an important year to let the training and learning community share with one another about the products and tools that help them accomplish their work. And, in turn, to create a positive way to appreciate vendors, such as FranklinCovey, who so quickly adapted to meet new needs and demands.”
