NIGP: The Institute for Public Procurement has been named a 2019 Training Top 125 Winner by Training magazine, the leading business publication for professional learning and development. NIGP, a non-profit association that develops, supports and promotes the public procurement profession shares this noteworthy honor with worldwide brands and Fortune 500 companies.
The annual Training Top 125 ranks companies’ excellence in employer-sponsored training and development programs. “The 2019 Training Top 125 winners…are on the leading edge as they effectively deliver employee training that pushes the needle forward to meet organizational goals while developing an engaged, creative, and committed workforce. Congratulations to these standout organizations for their stellar dedication to learning and employee growth said Training magazine Editor-in-Chief Lorri Freifeld.”
Now in its 19th year, the Training Top 125 ranking is based on a variety of benchmarking statistics including: total training budget, number of training hours per employee program, hours of training per employee annually and learning goals among others. The ranking is determined by assessing a range of qualitative and quantitative factors, including financial investment in employee development, the scope of development programs, how closely such development efforts are linked to business goals and objectives, and the results they achieve.
