All throughout the forum, we were very keen to share good practices with renowned corporate universities from different cultural backgrounds and varied industries, as well as to identify opportun ities for improving our programs and corporate education actions. Needless to say, being elected the best overall corporate university was an extraordinary achievement that represents a landmark in our efforts to promote and deliver quality education."

"This is a great honor and privilege for us to receive this reputable GlobalCCU Award. With corporate universities being a growing trend world-wide, the role of GlobalCCU in sharing and highlighting the best practices is very important now. The international recognition of Sberbank Corporate University’s achievements is the result of intensive and proactive work by the whole Sberbank team in developing the culture of learning organization and the world-class Corporate university to support Sberbank's vision of its human capital as key source of its sustainable competitive advantage. This year the other GlobalCCU prize-winners were also very prominent, and for us its is quite a responcibility to be the first representative of Russian business to be awarded by GlobalCCU and we will make all efforts that this high-caliber international professional community will continue to recognize developments and innovations at Sberbank CU on our way forward."

"Regarding participation in the Advisory and Judging Committee in Awards process: I valued the awards process very much as I was able to meet and interact with highly experienced peers in our profession from around the world , learn about new and interesting practices from among our applicants, and take time out from day to day execution of my own work to reflect and consider new approaches with fresh insights . Additionally, the Awards event was very enjoyable, in a lovely venue with a good mix of pageantry and ceremony with friendly humor and warmth. The benchmarking sessions brought together award winners and thought leaders from Corporate Universities from a round the world to discuss and reflect on new ideas, challenging common issues, and how they are building on established best practices to address the needs of new business goals and new learning styles of our employees. I was impressed by how the award winners have ta ken very fresh approaches to long-standing challenges with great results, and will be taking these learnings back to my own team to discuss."
