Bridgepoint Education Awarded Best in Compliance Training at the 2013 Brandon Hall Excellence Awards


Bridgepoint Education, Inc. (NYSE: BPI) has received the Best in Compliance Training Award from the Brandon Hall Group. As a 2013 Brandon Hall Excellence Award winner, Bridgepoint Education was recognized for developing and deploying successful learning programs specifically designed to address compliance-driven learning objectives.

“Bridgepoint Education is honored to be recognized by the Brandon Hall Group,” said John Higgins, Bridgepoint Education’s vice president of talent management. “In the higher education industry, regulations tend to change frequently. It is imperative to provide updates to our staff in the most effective way so that they continue to perform their jobs, while staying in compliance with state and federal regulations.”

Bridgepoint Education’s compliance awareness campaigns serve as a tool to mitigate risk and align the organization with Department of Education and state regulations within the higher education industry. The campaigns consist of a monthly, interactive electronic newsletter with corresponding resources that are designed and developed specifically for student-facing employees. Topics and content for each month are selected by representatives from the organization’s admissions, compliance, legal, and learning and development departments.

“Rather than treat compliance as a program or one-off event, we strive to weave compliance into our culture of student service,” said Higgins. “The approach recognized by Brandon Hall is an example of our culture-based approach to compliance.”

The Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards Program is a prestigious awards program in the learning, talent management, and sales and marketing industries. Since 1995, the program has recognized the best companies from around the globe that have successfully developed and deployed programs, strategies, modalities, processes, systems, and tools that have helped companies achieve measurable results.
