LearnX Award Gold 2021

Melbourne, November 18, 2021

Among others, the awareness game "Cyber Crime Time" was awarded Gold in the category "Best Game E-Learning Design". In the freely available IT security training, learners become hackers themselves and try to damage a fictitious company. Along the way, they learn first-hand about the most common cyber attacks and can better recognize security risks in the future.

 

The highest possible award, the Platinum Award, imc received in the "Future Learning" category. The award went to the customised learning model that imc created together with the Green Climate Fund. The project originated in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

Another Gold Award went to imc, in partnership with the Victorian Department of Health, for enhancing the Learning Management System (LMS) to accelerate knowledge transfer to the Covid-19 Task Force, in the category of "Best Pandemic Response: compliance training."

Also going to Victoria is the Gold Award in the "E-learning widespread adopter initiative" category for imc and the Department of Education and Training. Here, a pathway was created to train teachers in dealing with students who have difficulty with numeracy and mathematics.

Another Gold Award was received by imc and the authorities in Victoria in the "Employee Experience Strategy" category.

The fifth Gold Award was in the Best Performance Support category for the implementation of a performance-based management system at the New South Wales Department of Public and Justice.

"The new image of imc accompanies the strategic realignment of the company. With the new brand identity, we express the digital transformation and the targeted globalization of our company. The beginning of the year is the right time for us to make the new approach of imc and the brand visible to the world," explains imc's board member Sven R. Becker. "Our goal was to create a globally uniform 360° brand experience that is more modern and authentic," adds Kerstin Steffen, Head of Global Marketing and Communications.

 

Strategy

 

Where the company has already taken on the role of the market leader in the DACH region, imc now aims the development and position itself in further markets. "We would like to develop the future of imc, a clear long-term corporate strategy based on our corporate purpose, vision, mission and values," says Becker. "These guidelines were specifically reviewed, revised and scrutinized in the course of the new brand identity. It was important for us to bring these principles into a contemporary and future-oriented version".

 

Logo

 

imc is part of the Scheer Group, a group of companies with more than 1,000 employees in over 15 countries and a group turnover of over 100 million euros. The expert network for digital business models and transformation projects has the mission to promote and strengthen the cooperation of the participating companies.

Rewrite the way we learn

 

"imc aims to empower people and organizations around the world to reach their full potential in a constantly evolving world. We want to make learning better by redefining the way we learn," says Becker, describing the new corporate vision.

The slogan "Rewrite the way we learn" is intended to underscore this endeavor. In the future, experts from all areas of the company will be working hand in hand to offer customers holistic and customized strategies, solutions, products and content.

 

Corporate Design

 

The main element and trademark of the new design is the "digital underscore". It visualizes the digital approach, but also stands for imc's individual and customized training concepts, solutions and training content.

The element can be used flexibly and has a very good recognition value across all media and communications. The new brand language has also become more modern, bold and fresh - without losing its high-quality standards.

"In designing the brand, we paid particular attention to a high degree of flexibility and applicability in digital media," says Steffen. "The underscore in combination with the new imc orange visuals will give our brand its new characteristic look ".
