AlliedBarton Wins National Recognition
AlliedBarton Security Services has earned national recognition for its training programs for the third consecutive year on Training magazine’s Top 125 list, and for its leadership development practices with the Corporate University Xchange and ASTD Excellence in Practice Awards.
“Individually, these awards are amazing,” explained Jim Gillece, AlliedBarton chief people officer and senior vice president of human capital management. “But together, this is an outstanding and unmatched accomplishment. The recognition of these three respected organizations fully confirms, without question, that AlliedBarton has taken training and leadership development to an entirely new level. We are proud to take the lead in this arena as the importance of training and leadership development is paramount in every industry.”
“AlliedBarton was the first security services company honored on the Training Top 125 list, which includes Fortune 500 companies and leading businesses that are household names,” said Gillece. “We are honored to once again be listed among the best of the best.”
Companies are selected for the Training Top 125 based on factors such as training programs, methods of employee evaluation and measurement, and financial commitment to training. Training magazine also conducted workplace surveys and analyzed a variety of training and personnel data from each applicant prior to selection as a Training Top 125 company.
The ASTD Excellence in Practice Award recognizes AlliedBarton’s Leadership Boot Camp in the Workplace Learning and Development category. AlliedBarton also received two citations. The Excellence in Practice Awards are presented for proven practices that meet a demonstrated need, have appropriate design values, are aligned with other performance improvement initiatives, and deliver clear and measurable results.
The Corporate University Xchange Awards for Excellence and Innovation in Corporate Learning honor learning organizations whose programs improve employee and business performance.
