Inclusion in the Training Top 125 is based on many factors, including financial commitment, programs offered, methods of evaluation, workplace surveys, and HR data such as turnover and new employee referrals.
Others that have been named to the list include such giants of industry as Ritz-Carlton, Wachovia and Verizon Wireless.
