Monterey, Calif. (November 17, 2020) – For the second consecutive year Berkley Design Professional (BDP), a division of Berkley Alliance Managers, a Berkley Company, has won a Brandon Hall Group Excellence Award for Learning for its BDP Risk® Learning Management System. The 2020 Silver Award for “Best Advance in Custom Content” recognizes Berkley Design Professional’s successful efforts to increase client retention and to help design professionals improve their business practices and decrease claim frequency.

“This year we had a remarkable increase in the number of BDP Risk® users and tripled our course participation,” said Diane P. Mika, vice president and director of risk management education at Berkley Design Professional. “But perhaps the strongest indicator of success is our confirmation of the relationship between risk management education participation and a decrease in claims.”

When at least one person in a firm completed a BDP Risk® education program, the likelihood of a claim decreased by more than 12% as compared to firms that had zero participation. In addition, when usage increased to more than one course per registered user, claim frequency decreased by more than 22%. Furthermore, when firms participated in an instructor-led training session, the likelihood of a claim decreased by 26%.

The BDP Risk® award entry was sponsored by LMS software provider, Docebo, which also shares the honor. Now in its 26th year, the Brandon Hall Group Excellence Award is among the most prestigious awards offered within the human capital and corporate/institutional learning industry.
