Miami Children’s Health System (MCHS) has once again been named to Training magazine’s list of the Top 125 training organizations in North America. For the last 11 years, MCHS has been included in the listing, which highlights companies that demonstrate excellence in employer-sponsored training and development programs.
“We are honored to be recognized as an organization that finds value in investing in our employee training and development,” said Michael Kushner, Senior Vice President and Chief Talent Officer at Miami Children’s Health System. “It is a testament to our commitment to the patients and families in our care.”
Miami Children’s Health System, the parent organization for Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, has a longstanding commitment to offering development and continuing education programs. Through the health system’s internal learning management system, My Learning Space (MYLES), employees have access to an array of virtual learning tools and educational modules. Other programs include an internal culture-shaping program known as MCHS Way, the MCHS buddy program for employee onboarding, brand awareness workshops, continuing education certifications, and much more.
Now in its 17th 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, and measurement; workplace surveys; hours of training per employee annually; and detailed formal programs. The ranking is determined through an assessment 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.
Training magazine is the leading business publication for Learning and Development professionals.
