And that’s exactly what Training Magazine recently said the Quicken Loans Training team is – among the 125 best in America, to be exact.
Training Magazine just released its list of “2011 Training Top 125″ – and we’re on it. Here’s a little from their website:
“Top companies realize how vital training is to their success and continue to invest in it, even in trying times. First-time No. 1 winner Farmers Insurance puts such a premium on learning that its new national advertising campaign showcases learning taking place at the University of Farmers. The 2011 Top 125 companies collectively dedicated an average 6.7 percent of their payroll to the training budget—and they have the business results to show for it. Some 27 newcomers earned a spot on the list this year, the 11th in a row Training has ranked the top companies of employer-sponsored workforce training and development.
As usual, each Top 125 company was measured on quantitative (75 percent of total score) and qualitative (25 percent of total score) data. Factors influencing the rankings include: Training tied to business objectives • Demonstrable results • Number of trainers • Employee turnover and retention • Leadership development • Tuition assistance • Training technology and infrastructure • Certification • Training budget and percentage of payroll. And much, much more. An outside research and statistical data company, under the guidance of Training magazine, scored companies on this data supplied by applicants. Then, our editors and the Training Top 10 Hall of Famers qualitatively reviewed the applications.”
