Norfolk, VA (PRWEB) March 13, 2015
Times are changing and corporate training environments are no exception. Companies seek to do more while spending less. The workforce is also changing, with Baby Boomers retiring at an average rate of 10,000 per day and Millennials now making up the majority of the workforce.
It is no secret that well-trained employees drive positive business results. Studies have shown that investing in employee training increases productivity and profits, improves retention, increases customer satisfaction, enhances morale, and builds loyalty. Dominion Enterprises (DE) recognizes the opportunities that come with change and understands its impact on its employees’ training and development needs.
Training magazine, the leading business publication for learning and development professionals, recently recognized Dominion Enterprises with a 2015 Training Top 125 award for outstanding training initiatives. Training magazine annually honors 125 organizations that are committed to leadership development, innovative training solutions, and demonstrable results of training programs.
Dominion Enterprises’ commitment to employee training and development extends from the executive management team throughout the organization. This commitment is evident in the investments, programs, and metrics DE focused on over the last 12 months and continues to pursue in 2015.
“Congratulations to the 2015 Training Top 125 winners! These organizations proved their commitment to effective training and employee development tied to corporate strategic goals. The competition was impressive this year as 27 newcomers earned a place on the list,” said Lorri Freifeld, editor-in-chief of Training magazine.
Dominion Enterprises was one of those newcomers. The corporate training team partnered with the Dominion Dealer Solutions training team to complete the extensive application. “I am so proud of the work these teams do to support the learning and development needs of our employees and we are excited to be recognized on the Training Top 125 list,” said Melodi Albert, vice president of management development, training, and recruiting for DE.
Now in its fifteenth year, 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; annual hours of training per employee; 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.
