Cerner News Release:

Cerner Corp. Recognized as a LearningElite Organization

MARCH 29, 2013
Chief Learning Officer magazine’s LearningElite and Editor’s Choice Awards Presented at Gala
KANSAS CITY, Mo. and AUSTIN, Texas — March 28, 2013 — Cerner Corp. was presented with a 2013 LearningElite award from Chief Learning Officer magazine at a gala dinner held on at the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort & Spa in Austin, Texas. Cerner Corp. was ranked No. 13 in the competition from a field of more than 200 companies.
“We’re thrilled to be recognized as a LearningElite organization. We view our people as a competitive advantage and key differentiator in the market, so ensuring they are the best they can be is a very high priority for Cerner.  We believe we have created a learning and development capability at Cerner that is innovative, agile, and highly effective.  As a result, our associates have the knowledge and skills to make a difference in improving healthcare every day,” said Rob Campbell, vice president and Chief Learning Officer with Cerner.
Developed under the guidance of chief learning officers and senior workforce development practitioners, the CLO LearningElite is the only peer-based benchmarking initiative in the industry. This pioneering program utilizes best practices in evaluation to objectively assess both the scope and the value of the learning and development services that companies provide. It recognizes excellence in five key L&D performance indicators: learning strategy, learning impact, leadership commitment, learning execution and business performance results.
“In our third year of benchmarking workforce learning and development practices, competition was intense. The organizations that achieved LearningElite status stood out as true innovators in enterprise education — noteworthy for their unswerving commitment to deploying elite L&D practices that deliver measurable business value,” said Sarah Kimmel, director of research and advisory services for the Human Capital Media Advisory Group, a component of the magazine’s publisher, MediaTec Publishing. “The LearningElite’s incisive analysis yields solid data that validates the impact these organizations’ learning initiatives have on productivity, engagement, innovation and, ultimately, business results.”
“Chief Learning Officer is proud to recognize organizations such as Cerner Corp. that make learning and development a key part of their business strategy as well as their culture,“ said Norm Kamikow, president and editor in chief of MediaTec and its Human Capital Media Group. “This level of commitment is what enables enterprises to build and maintain high-performing workforces with the competencies, capabilities and leadership skills to carry out the company’s mission and achieve its goals.”
Cerner moved up 16 spots from its previous ranking in 2012. For more information about the LearningElite, visit
