London, UK – 18 November 2010: MyWorkSearch and Commelius Solutions have been awarded Gold for the Most Innovative New Product or Tool at the 2010 e-learning Awards. Commelius Solutions‘s leading e-learning content has helped the pioneering MyWorkSearch solution revolutionise the outplacement industry and is assisting 30,000 people in finding employment.
MyWorkSearch, the specialist online re-employment assistance, has transformed an industry traditionally based on a high cost face-to-face contact model. Its powerful online jobseekers toolkit guides users through three fundamental steps to securing work - finding a job, having the best job application and giving the best interview. Its innovative online technologies can be tailored to individual requirements and assist in the managing and tracking of the large numbers of applications needed to secure employment in today’s market.
Working in partnership with Commelius Solutions, the MyWorkSearch solution has evolved from an online knowledge management tool to an integrated learning technology solution with e-learning at the heart of its success.
The e-learning Awards category was heavily contested with over 40 entries. The judges liked the integration of e-learning so that individual job suggestions and careers advice are based on user actions and results. Because the entire assistance an individual requires is now online, the service is scalable and can instantly meet demand irrespective of numbers. It is also highly affordable, and unlike face to face outplacement, provision is 24/7 and all you can eat.
Commelius worked with MyWorkSearch to create a range of relevant and useful e-learning content that helps job seekers manage their activity and get back to work. The e-learning is uniquely designed to meet the needs of a wide range of backgrounds, seniority, experience and ages to reflect the diversity of the MyWorkSearch community.
Collecting the award on behalf of MyWorkSearch, CEO Richard Alberg said, I am absolutely delighted to have the innovative aspect of our solution recognised. When we introduced the e-learning, it was a major advance for our business and it had an immediate impact on our users. Commelius has helped us to crystallise our communications issues, enabled us to offer content that looks great and last but not least, we have improved the quality of the user's experience with over 30,000 people now using our e-learning content.
Bob Woodland, CEO and Chairman of Commelius comments, We are very proud to be working in partnership with MyWorkSearch. It is incredibly rewarding to contribute a solution that helps so many jobseekers, particularly in today’s tough economic climate. This award really demonstrates the effectiveness of e-learning in real-world situations and we look forward to assisting even more jobseekers in the years to come.
