Haskell leaps to No. 3 in Training Top 100

Also, for the third consecutive year, Haskell received one of only five Best Practice Awards presented by Training magazine.


Haskell has been named a 2021 Training Top 100 company by Training Magazine for its commitment to comprehensive and strategically aligned training and workforce development. Ranked No. 3, this marks the ninth consecutive year Haskell has been recognized, its third straight year in the Top 20 and its first Top 5 ranking.

Additionally, for the third straight year, Haskell received one of five Best Practice Awards, as its SafeMatters Jobsite Safety Orientation was recognized for its innovation and ability to deliver measurable results across multiple learning platforms.

"We salute these best-in-class organizations for their steadfast dedication to continuous employee learning and development; their agility and innovation in transforming their training delivery in response to the pandemic; and their passionate commitment to the current and future success of their people," Training magazine Editor-in-Chief Lorri Freifeld said.

The Training Top 100 Award honors companies across the globe from all areas of business and industry, recognizing the world’s most successful learning and development programs, which faced many new challenges in 2020. The competitive ranking process incorporates extensive benchmarking statistics linked to training effectiveness and measurable results.

“We are proud of being honored by Training Magazine for the ninth year,” said David Thaeler, Haskell’s Chief Human Resources Officer. “This prestigious award affirms the value we place on creating the Best Jobs of our Team Members’ Lives. Providing ‘next-in-class‘ learning and professional development opportunities is key to that commitment. Even as we faced unprecedented COVID-related challenges in 2020, our commitment to learning and development and our team never changed.”

Haskell improved from #11 in 2020, which Brooke Jones-Chinetti, Director of Learning, Development & Engagement, attributes in part to LD&E’s ongoing efforts to further align learning and development programming with Haskell 2025, the company’s strategic plan for purposeful growth.

In addition to optimizing team members’ work experiences, LD&E focused on supporting goals of Driving Operational Excellence and Optimizing Intellectual Capital, Technology and Innovation.

“LD&E worked diligently with our senior leaders to set training priorities and strategy to ensure our offerings are nested within Haskell’s vision,” Jones-Chinetti said. “Learning and Development is no longer a ‘nice to have’ but an economic imperative. Haskell’s investment in the success of every team member is inspiring, and our commitment to training and professional development is a differentiator not only in our industry but on a global stage.”

The Top 100 represents organizations spanning a wide range of multinational businesses and industries, many of which are household names. Financial services company United Wholesale Mortgage ranked No. 1 for the first time, followed by MasTec Utility Services. Other notable recipients included Visa (No. 15), Edward Jones (No. 19), AAA (No. 26), Gilbane Building Company (No. 30), CVS Health (No. 40), Dish Network (No. 44), Sundt Construction (No. 63) and Mastercard (No. 64).

The rankings are determined by assessing a range of qualitative and quantitative factors, including financial investment in team member development, the scope of development programs, how closely such development efforts are linked to business goals and objectives, and their effectiveness in terms of business impact.
