GENEVA, Switzerland—Alcon, a global leader in eyecare, announced that its interactive compliance training video experience, The Lens, has been named Best Special Workforce Initiative: Health in the 2nd Annual Anthem Awards. Launched in 2021 by The Webby Awards, The Anthem Award winners are selected by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences. The interactive compliance experience was developed by Alcon’s legal and compliance team along with Labyrinth Training—an innovative company that combines first rate storytelling with award-winning interactive design to bring corporate policies to life.

“We are honored to be recognized by The Anthem Awards for our company-wide compliance training program, The Lens,” said Royce Bedward, senior vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary for Alcon.

The Lens is comprised of five interactive episodes, during which Alcon’s users across the world are called on to make decisions that would impact the narrative experience of Martin and Andrea, two Alcon salespeople, as they navigate hypothetical situations with health care professionals. Covering policy topics from anti-bribery to antitrust concerns, the training was successfully launched globally in 17 languages and completed by 81 percent of Alcon associates within just the first 60 days.

“We’re incredibly proud of The Lens series, and being honored by The Anthem Awards is a testament to its impact. Partnering with the Alcon team was a wonderful experience, and we appreciate the creative spark they brought to the project,” said Labyrinth training co-founder Peter Grossman.

This year, The Anthem Awards received nearly 2,000 entries from 43 countries worldwide. The Anthem Award winners are selected by the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences, a 3,000-person organization of intellectually diverse leaders across various industries. Winners for the 2nd Annual Anthem Awards were celebrated at the Winners Celebration held on February 27 in New York City.
