SALT LAKE CITY (January 11, 2010) — The OMNI Awards recognize outstanding media productions that engage, empower and enlighten in the fields of film, television, video, interactive, animation and Web. Allen created BDS:eApprentice by condensing years of learning and expertise from USANA’s most flourishing leaders into several hours of fun, yet educational, e-learning to provide just-in-time or on-the-job sales training for new and less experienced associates. One unique aspect of BDS:eApprentice is the ability for associates to create an IRS-ready business plan.
With the course in place, new associates are fully trained to start their businesses within hours of signing up with USANA. As a result, associates have the confidence and knowledge to become successful faster, start earning commissions sooner and consequently, have an incentive to stay with USANA longer.
“These awards are a testament to the hard work and dedication of a team committed to providing the best learning tools for our Associates,” said Roy Truett, USANA Chief Information Officer. “We are honored to be recognized with these awards and believe Associates will take full advantage of the benefits of this new and innovative training program.”
“Being able to filter through USANA’s best sales practices, whittle them into an instructionally creative course, then couple it with the latest training technology gave USANA a unique perspective to share their stories and encourage participation,” said Ron Zamir, CEO of Allen Communication Learning Services. “The recognition of the OMNI awards just validates the importance of this just-in-time custom training.”
