North Highland is proud to announce that it is a 2020 winner of the Association for Talent Development’s (ATD) BEST Award. North Highland is among 66 organizations from Australia, Canada, India, Kenya, Macao, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and the United States to receive the award this year. Companies were recognized during a virtual awards recognition celebration on June 30.

North Highland is committed to unleashing, empowering and developing individuals, teams and the organization through business-aligned strategic talent practices that grow and advance the firm and our people.

“We are thrilled to be honored by ATD as a leader in talent development,” said Michelle Resnick, Director of Employee Experience and Talent Development at North Highland. “This award highlights our dedication to providing North Highlanders with great content and learning opportunities through our Learning Lab and our commitment to enabling firm members to grow through their choices and make their mark on their careers.”

The ATD BEST Awards are the talent development industry’s most rigorous and coveted recognition. The BEST Awards recognize organizations that demonstrate enterprise-wide success through talent development. “Creating innovative, vibrant learning cultures and developing talent in ways that clearly contribute to strategic business goals, are hallmarks of ATD BEST winners,” says Tony Bingham, ATD President and CEO. “They get it. Leaders in these organizations value the impact that talent development achieves, because they know that having a knowledgeable and skilled workforce drives success.”

North Highland competed against 185 organizations that submitted quantitative and qualitative information about their talent development practices and programs. Applications were assessed in a blind review by members of the ATD BEST Awards advisory committee, a select group of experts in the field.

This is the eighteenth year of the BEST Awards. More information about the 2020 ATD BEST Award winners may be found in the special July 2020 issue of TD magazine.
