The ALLIANCE Business Centers NETWORK (ABCN), the largest global organization of business center operators, announces the establishment of ALLIANCE Academy to provide training to the business center industry and, additionally, to the commercial office broker industry, property ownership and management industry, as well as corporate users of serviced offers and business office services.
As the business center industry and the overall office building industry have grown significantly over the past two decades, many center owners have focused on operational and marketing-related issues of new development and expansion, leaving little time or resource for comprehensive training of new management and staff to support clients. Concurrently, many smaller, local business center owners have been unable to establish the training resource or dedicate staff time away from clients and on to personnel training and development.
Through its extensive curriculum and combination of on-site and distance learning programs, Academy training provides full certification and ranking for business centers worldwide. The establishment of the ALLIANCE Academy is a monumental step forward for the business center industry at large because for the first time, a greater transparency has been created for business center clients and everyone involved in the officing industry. The ALLIANCE Academy is led by senior industry and management training experts with an average of over 15 years of experience.
