Mursion, the industry-leading human-powered AI platform for practicing and developing essential workplace skills, was awarded five medals at the 2021 Brandon Hall Excellence in Technology Awards, including two Gold medals for Best Advance in Leadership Simulation Tools and Best Advance in Online Coaching Tools. 

Mursion was also recognized with one Silver medal (for Best Advance in Emerging Learning Technology), as well as two Bronze medals (Best Advance in Diversity and Inclusion Innovation and Best Advance in Augmented and Virtual Reality). These awards reflect Mursion’s commitment to empowering individuals through the power of virtual practice so they can perform with more competence and confidence in the real world.

The awards were judged by an international panel of industry experts based on the value to the business, technological innovation, unique differentiators, technical functionality, and measurable results of each company’s initiatives.

“Technology has never been more critical for success in human capital management than it is today. We were thrilled to see many new innovations in all areas, but especially related to the future of work,” said Brandon Hall Group Chief Operating Officer and awards program head Rachel Cooke. “Thanks to the many innovations from our Excellence in Technology winners, organizations have many compelling options as they make important decisions on how to leverage technology to drive their people’s strategies.”

“HCM solution providers must be experts and visionaries in technology, but they also must have the ability to anticipate the diverse needs of employers as they work to adapt to ongoing change,” Brandon Hall Group CEO Mike Cooke said. “This requires a blend of curiosity, empathy and agility that is difficult to achieve.
