Brandon Hall Group recognizes Sigma Chi’s “Preparation for Brotherhood” pledge education program developed by eLearning Brothers
American Fork, Utah - September 24, 2019 - eLearning Brothers, a leader in developing innovative, immersive custom eLearning, won a coveted Brandon Hall Group Gold award for excellence in the Talent Acquisition category.
The winning project, developed for Sigma Chi Fraternity, focused on pledge education and retention. eLearning Brothers developed a series of interactive, engaging online learning modules called Preparation for Brotherhood (P4B). Guided by custom designed avatars representing fictional fraternity brothers, potential new members learned about Sigma Chi’s history, values, ideals, and programs.
Since the implementation of Preparation for Brotherhood, Sigma Chi reports higher pledge retention rates each year, an overall increase in pledge-class GPA each year, and an increase in leadership development and involvement among members.
“Sigma Chi came to us asking for courses that were more ‘lit,’ as their members were saying, and our Custom Solutions team delivered,” said Andrew Scivally, eLearning Brothers CEO. “Learner feedback was extremely positive, and the recognition by Brandon Hall Group is another sign that we accomplished our goal for this project.”
“Our online programs were just a lot of PowerPoint slides with some videos. They were really, really painfully boring. When we worked with eLearning Brothers, what we got back was absolutely amazing,” said Brian Wilson, Sigma Chi Director of Education & Leadership Programs.
“Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards Program has recognized leading organizations for the past twenty-plus years for the latest trends in Human Capital Management,” said Rachel Cooke, Brandon Hall Group COO and leader of the HCM Excellence Awards Program. “The initiatives that were honored are not only innovative but fit the unique needs of the business and create truly remarkable success stories.”
Award entries were evaluated by a panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group analysts and executives based upon the following criteria: fit the need, design of the program, functionality, innovation and overall measurable benefits.
“Working with Sigma Chi on this project, and the others we’ve created for them, has given us so many opportunities to create eLearning content that is visually impressive, thought provoking, effective, and incredibly meaningful,” said Rich Vass, Director of Customer Success. “The focus of these Preparation for Brotherhood courses is not just how to become a member, but how to live out the Sigma Chi values in college and beyond.”
