ERM, in partnership with sales training experts Imparta, has received Gold level recognition from the Learning and Performance Institute’s Learning Awards for our Client Development Program (CDP) - the third consecutive year in which we have been awarded gold by an external organization.

The award in the Learning Impact category recognizes the implementation and evidenced success of our multi-award-winning CDP. Designed to enhance ERM's client-centric approach, it provides a suite of ready-to-use tools and methods that ERMers apply to help clients achieve their long-term sustainability goals. In place since 2018, the program has evolved to meet changing markets, business, client and talent needs. Our CDP previously received gold awards from the Brandon Hall Awards in both 2021 and 2022. ​​​​​​​

“It is very much an honor to be recognized with our Imparta partners by the Learning and Performance Institute for the impact we have created using the Client Development Program. ERM’s purpose is to shape a sustainable future with the world’s leading organizations. Through our partnership with Imparta and by deployment of the CDP we are accelerating client relationships that will allow ERM to impact our client’s business and society at large.” Tim Strawn, Regional CEO for EMEA.

Richard Barkey, Founder and CEO of Imparta, said “The continued success that the CDP has at industry awards within extremely competitive categories evidences its best-in-class learner experience, coaching integration, and impact on commercial, customer and employee metrics. We are excited to continue our partnership with ERM and look forward to more success as the program grows to meet new needs and audiences in the future.”

Imparta now recommend our methodology and practice for the program - having deliberate and purposeful customization, utilizing internal roles for CDP Coaches and Logistics Leads, and continued support of these roles and the individual cohorts - to their other clients as the best-in-class and award-winning approach to take towards their own programs.  ​​​​​​​
