These awards recognize Quantum Workplace’s employee engagement technology, AI advances, and succession planning product. 

OMAHA, Neb. — Quantum Workplace, a leading employee success platform, as well as the employee engagement partner for the nationally recognized Best Places to Work Programs, won a Gold Award and two Silver Awards in the Brandon Hall Group Excellence in Technology Awards. 

The honors include a Gold Award for Best Advance in Employee Engagement Technology for its Narrative Insights feature, a Silver Award for Best Advance in AI for Business Impact for its Smart Summary tool, and a Silver Award for Best Advance in Succession Management Technology and Tools for its Succession Planning product. 

“Once again, the Brandon Hall Group has recognized us for our innovative employee success technology,” Quantum Workplace CEO Greg Harris said. “HR needs reliable software that can help them quickly uncover meaning in their data and easily take action to improve the employee experience, inspire impact, and create a magnetic culture that employees want to be a part of.” 

Quantum Workplace’s Narrative Insights, which received a Gold Award, is a real-time text analytics tool that provides qualitative data to the quantitative survey. It helps HR read between the lines and analyze comments to clearly identify sentiment and themes in engagement, pulse, and lifecycle surveys, helping HR make smarter business decisions. 

Smart Summary, which received a Silver Award, is powered with generative AI to accelerate and enhance survey comment analysis so organizations can get a sense of what their employees are saying before reading a single comment. The tool provides HR leaders with a summary in minutes – with the added flexibility to edit or regenerate the text. 

Succession Planning, which received a Silver Award, simplifies an often cumbersome process completed in a spreadsheet, to create a people-first approach connected to employee career growth with performance data already in the system. Organizations can identify successors for critical roles, rate successor readiness, develop future leaders, and guide employees who are ripe for new roles. This product makes it easy for organizations to plan for unexpected employee departures and proactively identify talent gaps that can be linked with development plans. 

"Our awards program is distinguished by the thorough evaluation process led by industry experts. Judges meticulously score each entry, and our executive leadership team at Brandon Hall Group reviews and validates the judging and scoring. The level of the award is solely determined by the number of points, ensuring a fair and unbiased recognition of excellence in technology," said Brandon Hall Group Chief Executive Officer Mike Cooke. 

Entries were evaluated by a panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group analysts, and executives based upon these criteria: fit the need, program design, functionality, innovation, and overall measurable benefits.
