Instructure's Director of Talent Management Wins HR Achievement Award for His Innovative Approach to Workforce Training

SALT LAKE CITY, May 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Instructure, Inc. (NYSE: INST), a leading software-as-a-service (SaaS) technology company in education, learning and performance management, announced today that its Director of Talent Management, Troy Anderson, won an HR Achievement Award from Utah Business Magazine. Anderson's use of the company's learning and performance management platform, Bridge, coupled with his hands-on approach to organizational development, set him apart as a leader in human resources.


"Troy sees the potential of people and uses teaching and technology to help everyone — from executives to our newest interns — develop and grow in their careers," said Jeff Weber, SVP of people and places at Instructure. "We are fortunate to have Troy on the team and appreciate all that he does to build and grow the talent at Instructure."

Instructure's HR philosophy to recruit, engage and develop employees includes a strong emphasis on helping employees progress in their careers. To help the company move toward this goal, Troy led an initiative, partnering with other internal experts from HR and Enterprise Systems, to create a framework that identifies core skills and competencies for every role in the organization. Those competencies were then mapped to learning objectives in Bridge, the company's corporate learning and talent management system. This allows employees to see clear paths to new roles, as well as the skills and knowledge required for career progression.

Another of Troy's key roles is centered on the retention and transmission of internal knowledge. By utilizing the Bridge platform, Troy enables subject matter experts in the company to contribute their expertise, creating courses and deploying content throughout the organization. Bridge is built on the idea that people who are trained properly and given the support they need will drive company-wide success and Troy works toward that vision every day.

"HR leaders are usually more accustomed to giving out kudos than receiving them," said Heather Stewart, managing editor of Utah Business Magazine. "That's why we're delighted to turn the tables and give some stellar HR professionals the recognition they deserve."
