Cartus Corporation, a leading provider of global relocation services, has for the 15th consecutive year been ranked as one of the Top 125 companies for organizational learning and development by Training Magazine—the training industry’s premier publication.
“Training Magazine’s recognition of Cartus’ collaborative style of conducting our training over the past 15 years is extremely gratifying to us,” said Amy Meichner, Cartus senior vice president, global human resources. “The synergies between our Learning & Development staff and our business groups are what help us identify the innovative training methods that are the cornerstone of the services we provide to our clients and customers worldwide.”
Two areas of expertise at Cartus were singled out by Training Magazine staff as indicative of the company’s collaborative style: a “best practice” that provides tailored support for new hires and has resulted in increased retention rates; and a training initiative that brings employees together in a formal mentor/mentee relationship for a six-month duration that includes professional guidance and goal setting.
Training’s annual competition evaluates organizational learning programs from hundreds of applicants, who are judged on elements such as internal best practices, demonstrable results, innovation, and evaluation procedures.
The Training Top 125 ranking is based on myriad benchmarking statistics such as total training budget; percentage of payroll; number of training hours per employee program; goals, evaluation, measurement, and workplace surveys; hours of training per employee annually; and detailed formal programs. The ranking is determined by assessing a range of qualitative and quantitative factors, including financial investment in employee development, the scope of development programs, and how closely such development efforts are linked to business goals and objectives.
