London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 18, 2013 -- For the 5th year running, Afiniti is delighted to have been recognised as one of the top Learning Companies at the Learning Awards, hosted by the Learning and Performance Institute on 7th February at The Dorcester.
Afiniti was awarded Bronze Learning Company 2013 by the LPI which is the industry body for the Learning industry, in the midst of increased industry competition and participation in the Awards. This year, there were 143 entrants for the Learning Company of the Year Award 2013, another unprecedented rise.
Corrina Jorgensen managing director, paid tribute to the team at Afiniti, saying: "It's fantastic to be recognised as one of the top three learning companies for the 5th year running.
"The LPI has seen a huge rise in entrants and we're making sure that Afiniti continually innovates to support businesses to make change stick and remains one of the top learning companies, setting high industry standards."
The LPI spoke of Afiniti's ongoing commitment to the highest standards in change management and learning and its continued recognition as one of the top companies in the face of increased competition. LPI, Chief Executive, Colin Steed said: " The standard of this year's entries was again exceptional. The number of submissions surpassed our expectations with hundreds of entries received from across the globe, so to be a Finalist is a real achievement."
Afiniti was also shortlisted in the Project of the Year category for ORBIS a project with National Rail which saw Afiniti support the rolling out of iPhones and iPads to maintenance staff. Afiniti's innovative approach in delivering technology driven change was reflected in its sponsorship of the Innovation in Learning Award which was won by SpeakingPal for its use of technology to support learning English.
Afiniti also continues to support the LPI's nominated charity Dreamflight which takes seriously ill children on a holiday of a lifetime. Lorna Gibbons ran a half marathon late last year, and Afiniti plans more fundraising activities this year. The LPI is projected to raise over Â£70,000 for Dreamflight thanks to the Awards night.
