DURHAM — Oct. 26, 2022 — BCL, a leading learning agency headquartered in Durham, NC, today announced the launch of a unique new online learning program designed specifically to help companies rapidly establish a true feedback culture.
BCL created this program in response to market demand. With leaders from HR and Learning organizations under pressure to build strong feedback cultures—and a lack of high-quality, scalable solutions—the idea for Feedback Academy was born.
“Feedback is a skill that requires a lot of practice – so training on feedback by necessity needs to have a lot of opportunity for practice. That’s what we’ve provided with Feedback Academy” says BCL Co-Founder and Partner, Nathan Pienkowski Ph.D. “Feedback Academy is rooted in foundational concepts that set the groundwork for a growth mindset. Because it’s online and self-paced, you can quickly get thousands of people trained.”
Topics range from the basics of how to give and receive feedback to how to have serious, course-correcting conversations. Designed for the modern workforce, the Academy’s on-demand microlearning lessons can be taken at the learner’s convenience.
“The days of a once-a-year feedback session are gone. Today, companies need to teach their employees how, when, and where to give and receive feedback – effectively and consistently. It needs to be woven into the culture” says Garry O’Grady CEO of BCL. “We’re proud of building a program that can help companies get there.”
BCL, the parent company to Feedback Academy, is a learning agency that designs and delivers custom learning solutions for large organizations. BCL was founded in 2013 and is headquartered in Durham, NC. The company has a unique approach to learning-solution design that is rooted in the belief that only through real behavior change can companies drive business results. BCL is proud to serve recognized brands such as Google, Intuit, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and more. BCL has two affiliate companies including Bull City Blue, a leading life science learning agency, and Immunization Academy, a global-health learning program and now, Feedback Academy.
