HYDERABAD: Satyam, the global consulting and information technology services company, has announced that it ranked 15th in the American Society for Training and Development’s Fourth Annual BEST Awards program, which recognizes organizational commitment to employee learning.


Ramalinga Raju, founder and chairman, Satyam, said, “This recognition from ASTD reinforces the fact that our learning programs have moved beyond the theory stage, and are bearing fruit. Through state-of-the-art learning interventions and world-class training courses, we will continue to boost our organization’s intellectual capital, and deliver value to our stakeholders.”

Satyam is among 39 organizations from India, South Africa, and United States to receive the ASTD BEST Award. In its online survey, ASTD reviewed applications from 78 organizations in seven countries. Participants submitted quantitative and qualitative information about their learning and development practices and programs. The BEST awards advisory committee reviewed the applications, a Satyam statement said.

Satyam learning initiatives are driven by two entities: The Satyam School of Leadership (SSL) and the Satyam Learning Center (SLC). The SSL offers courses to create entrepreneurial leaders. Early next year, it will also feature a research and development facility.

The ASTD BEST awards recognize organizations that demonstrate enterprise-wide success through employee learning and development. “The winners set the standard of excellence for exceptional learning practices, and demonstrate that a skilled workforce is vital to achieving results,” said Tony Bingham, ASTD’s president and CEO.
