Mountain America Credit Union Recognized as Bronze LearningElite Organization

WEST JORDAN, UT -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/14 -- Mountain American Credit Union was recently named a LearningElite organization for 2014 by Chief Learning Officer magazine. Singled out for creating and implementing exemplary workforce development practices that deliver measureable business value, Mountain American ranked No. 46 from a record-breaking field of more than 200 companies, participating in the prestigious annual benchmarking program.

"We are honored to be selected as a LearningElite organization," says Suzanne Oliver, senior vice president of Educational Services and Governmental Affairs for Mountain America. "To be the only financial institution recognized with this award is a significant honor. There is great value in establishing high-quality learning and development practices for our employees at Mountain America, and this award is a great barometer of the good things we are doing."

LearningElite is the only peer-reviewed ranking and benchmarking program developed in collaboration with chief learning officers and senior workforce development practitioners. It has become the industry's most valuable benchmarking tool. The program utilizes rigorous evaluation methodologies to objectively assess both the scope and value of participants' learning and development practices and to rank the organizations based upon the execution and impact of these initiatives.

"The LearningElite's incisive analysis yields solid data that prove L&D initiatives are part of an organization's value equation," says Sarah Kimmel, director of research and advisory services for the Human Capital Media Group, which publishes Chief Learning Officer. "It also validates what separates the best from the rest. A LearningElite organization has an aligned, precisely executed learning strategy that is backed by leadership commitment. It consistently delivers learning impact that fosters competitive advantage, drives business results and makes a high-performing organization sustainable."
