Training Magazine's Top 125

We are honored to be recognized for the fourth year in a row and to be in the same category with nationally known organizations.

CareSource, a public-sector managed care company, was recognized for a fourth year in a row as one of Training magazine's Top 125 companies that excel at staff development and training.

CareSource, listed at #15 on the Top 125 list, joins the ranks of some of the nation’s largest and most successful organizations including Jiffy Lube International, Farmers Insurance and Edward Jones. CareSource University (CSU) was honored at the awards gala held February 18 at the Training 2013 Conference & Expo in Orlando, Florida. The past three years, CareSource has ranked in the top 15.

"We are deeply committed to developing our employees with break-through approaches in our training and development programs through CSU,” said Pamela Morris, President and CEO. “Attracting and retaining a highly engaged and talented workforce is critical to supporting our strategic initiatives.”

With choices from more than 500 curriculum offerings, CareSource University provides a full-service career planning and development resource to all employees, including clinical licensure programs, new employee training, leadership and career development and coaching.

"We are honored to be recognized for the fourth year in a row and to be in the same category with nationally known organizations,” Jaclyn Smith, Vice President of CareSource University, stated. “In 2012, we increased employment by 55%. To support this rapid and projected growth, we need a strong foundation of leaders.”

An employee expressed the importance of ongoing training and development.

“The leadership program was exceptional. I realized my potential and the importance to grow professionally,” Christopher Sanford, Information Technology, explained. “CSU’s development programs are relevant, accessible and extremely rewarding.”

Training magazine selects 125 global and national organizations annually that exhibit best training practices, evaluation methods and outstanding training initiatives. Honorees range in size from Fortune 500 companies to smaller organizations of 100 plus employees. Judging is based upon elements such as scope of development programs, financial investment in employee development, and how closely training efforts are linked to business goals and objectives.

“We look forward to continuing to train our employees in a way that is innovative, personalized and immediately applicable to our organizational objectives,” Smith added.
