Detroit, MI (Vocus/PRWEB) March 01, 2011
Quicken Loans Inc., a 50-state lender of refinance and purchase mortgages, was named to Training magazine’s annual Top 125 List, and accepted the award at a black-tie gala held February 7, 2011, at the San Diego Convention Center. In addition, Quicken Loans was one of five recipients to win an Outstanding Training Initiatives Award for the “Quicken’s Got Talent” program.
The online lender’s new mortgage bankers receive eight weeks of initial training. Upon graduation, mortgage bankers have a designated full-time coach providing tips in both individual and group settings. Access to an online video library with tips from top mortgage bankers is available, as well as more than 30 on-demand training modules.
“It’s a tremendous honor to not only be recognized by such a great magazine as one of the best training teams, but to know that this team’s hard work and dedication also earned us an award for one of the best initiatives for 2010,” said Steve Marcero, Director of Training at Quicken Loans. “We view these awards as an acknowledgement of the outstanding culture, leadership and thousands of engaged team members we work with every day who have a hand in our company’s success.”
Now in its 11th year, the Training Top 125 ranks companies based on the success and creativity of their training and development programs. To be considered, companies must complete a detailed application, which is scored quantitatively by an outside data company and qualitatively by Training magazine editors and representatives. Ranking is determined by assessing the scope and financial investment of employee development, and how closely they are linked to business goals. Some of the influential factors include annual training budget, hours of training per employee, tuition assistance, technology platforms and workplace surveys.
Statistics revealed that technology supports training delivery for 96 percent of applicants, and 98 percent of the companies used personal and individual development plans.
“We view advancements in technology as tools to enhance our skills, complement each team member’s learning style and ability, and find ways to efficiently connect with our clients during each step of the loan process,” said Jennifer Butkiewicz, Executive Training Consultant at Quicken Loans.
