London, 14th December 2022: Hive Learning is proud to announce it has won the Gold Award for ‘Best Advance in Diversity and Inclusion Innovation’ at the 2022 Brandon Hall Excellence in Technology Awards


This award follows the success of Hive Learning’s partnership with UKG to roll out its award-winning Inclusion Works program to all 15,000 UKG employees globally, offering practical learning designed to help every employee build daily habits of inclusion. 


The phased rollout of the digital learning program by UKG –– branded ‘Unified Foundational Learning’ internally –– is a critical initiative that supports part of the company’s core diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEI&B) strategy, aligns to its core values and behaviors, and furthers its mission to advance DEI&B at work.


“One of the fundamental elements of our strategy is to deeply understand complex topics associated with DEI&B and to regularly model inclusive behaviors that are core to building a culture where all employees feel uniquely valued. Foundational learning through our Unified program is taking our people on this journey from awareness to advocacy and action. Our Unified cohorts learn about unconscious bias, micro-aggressions, intersectionality, and other critical DEI&B-related topics that help form a common understanding and invite more open and honest conversations, so together we can champion a culture of trust, equity, and belonging for all.”  Brian K.Reaves, EVP and Chief Belonging, Diversity and Equity officer, UKG

Following the initial rollout of Hive Learning’s flagship inclusion program to UKG employees:

  • 86% of UKG employees who participated took action to develop a more inclusive culture;
  • 96% of executives participated in active discussions about DEI&B; and
  • 85% of learners discussed identity and difference with colleagues.


Hive Learning specializes in deploying programs in DEI&B and leadership development across enterprise organizations and its solution offers a unique way to embed behavior change at scale. The company couples its cohort-based, nudge-driven, programmatic learning platform with off-the-shelf learning programs and campaign packages, plus an experienced team of learning designers, marketers, and data scientists to support deployment.  


Earlier this year, Hive Learning was accepted into the UKG Diversity Accelerator Program, where it joined one of the world’s largest and most collaborative partner networks wholly focused on the HCM industry and receives targeted support from UKG to further amplify the impact of its programs. More than 70,000 UKG customers worldwide now have access to Hive Learning through the UKG Marketplace, including access to an exclusive integration between the two vendors which enables the automation of large-scale cohort management.


Hive Learning CEO Julia Tierney commented on the partnership:

“We’ve loved working with the innovative DEI&B team at UKG. They are one of the most responsive inclusion teams we have had the privilege of working with, constantly responding to changing learner needs in line with the wider social context and putting learners at the center of everything they do. 


“UKG says their purpose is people, and I have been able to witness how deeply that commitment runs over the past year. What I admire the most is their drive to take their internal learnings and use them to educate their customers on the latest and most innovative solutions shaping their world. I look forward to our continued work together in paving the way for what great DEI&B solutions look like in the corporate world.”
