Dextro, LLC, Wins Bersin & Associates Award

Bersin & Associates recognized Dextro as a leader in human resources, learning, and talent by bestowing on the company its Learning Leader award in the category of Vendor Innovation in Learning and Talent Management: Business Solutions and Content. Specifically, Bersin & Associates highlighted Dextro’s work on a large scale training initiative sponsored by the Mexican government to foster economic development. Under the guidance of CEO Nadja Giuffrida, the company furnished long-term sustainability training for thousands of Mexican micro-enterprises. Dextro manages projects and furnishes consultative services for institutions in the public and private spheres. 

The Bersin & Associates Learning Leader program identifies and rewards best practices across the organizational spectrum. The firm utilizes selection criteria compiled from years of study in the talent management, human resources, and learning fields. As its fundamental criterion, the firm asks for proof of a positive impact on business from companies applying for its awards. Applicants must tie the required proof to some recently implemented initiative or program or to an improvement in a process.

Dextro Honored for Latin American Training and Education Initiatives

In the summer of 2012, Computerworld magazine recognized Dextro, LLC, at its Laureate Honors Awards ceremony, a celebration of leaders who employ technological solutions to effect positive societal change. Dextro was named a Computerworld Laureate for its large-scale training and education projects that have touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of people throughout Mexico. These initiatives created employment and increased sustainability and productivity for Mexican enterprises ranging in size from small to medium. 

Dextro chief executive officer Nadja Giuffrida declared that several projects had achieved their immediate goals of measurably improving social and market conditions inside an economic zone with myriad challenges but that more remained to be done. An information technology firm operating out of Lansdowne, Virginia, and Mexico City, Dextro partners with governments and industries based in Latin America. The company successfully leverages its cultural expertise and expansive network of contacts to implement private as well as public sector projects. 

On its website, www.dextro.com, the company provides information about its unique services and its management team.

Nadja Giuffrida, CEO of Dextro: About the Computerworld Honors Program

Founded in 1999, Dextro exists to facilitate the economic development of communities across Latin America through specialized training and educational opportunities. In the 14 years since its founding, the company has affected social change in the areas of illiteracy and unemployment, receiving accolades such as 2012 Computerworld Honors Laureate recognition.

The Computerworld Honors program recognizes companies that use technology to drive social change. Criteria include developing a new technology, repurposing existing technology to meet a need, and solving or lessening a pressing social issue.

In addition, a company’s technology must fit into at least one of 10 awards categories. Those categories range from innovation and training/education—encompassing technology that creates or improves educational programs—to health, environment, and economic development. Another category, digital access, is defined as bringing Internet access to communities previously unable to draw from the vast well of digital information.

In 2012, Ms. Giuffrida’s company received Computerworld Laureate status in recognition of its Dextro Electronic Learning Platform, or DeLP, which provides over 500,000 people in Latin America with access to educational content such as business training.

Dextro, Thinkers, and LaPlaza.net

The CEO of Dextro, LLC, Nadja Giuffrida, has a long history of leading organizations. Today, she complements her work improving communities and lives in Latin America at Dextro by helming two nonprofit initiatives: Thinkers and LaPlaza.net.

Unlike Dextro, which has performed most of its work in Latin America, Thinkers and LaPlaza.net focus on improving the circumstances of minority populations that are disadvantaged in the United States. Working in partnership with the U.S. government, LaPlaza.net spreads Hispanic success stories, offers a point of access for the Hispanic community into the U.S. federal government, and links to other resources across the Web.

While Dextro, which can be reached on the Internet at www.dextro.com, remains operationally separate from Thinkers and LaPlaza.net, the company has reached out to help the organizations. It is currently subsidizing the price of a comprehensive American English learning platform through LaPlaza.net, and it provides the site with technical assistance as well.
