JACKSONVILLE, FL – Haskell has been ranked number 30 in Training magazine's Training Top 125 rankings for 2016. The rankings were unveiled February 15th during an awards gala at the Training 2016 Conference & Expo held in Orlando, Florida.
This marks the fourth consecutive year that Haskell has been recognized in the annual "Training Top 125" rankings, which highlight organizations for providing extraordinary employer-sponsored workforce training and development offerings. Training magazine’s award winners are the organizations with the most successful learning and development programs in the world—and the Top 125 has been the premier learning industry awards program for 15 years.
“We are very pleased to be recognized for being among the top national training programs of all industries. Setting us apart from many companies is the consistent support throughout the organization to seek excellence through training,” said Dave Balz, Vice President of Organizational Development. “From our C-suite to line managers, we have a leadership culture of investing in our people to grow their technical expertise and collaboration skills. This consistency between our values and vision helps us create and deliver a wide array of training topics, sessions and formats. Training keeps our colleagues engaged in their work and prepared for the future.”
Haskell continues to leverage the Kirkpatrick Model to specifically measure behavior, knowledge and results of learning activities. The model helps trainers measure the effectiveness of training and how it can be improved for the future.
“Haskell’s culture is people-centric and we realize our most vital resource is the employees. Giving talented people the opportunity to learn and grow allows them to thrive both professionally and personally. We constantly evaluate our learning programs and seek feedback from managers and participants regarding outcomes,” states David Thaeler, Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer. “Delivering advanced design, engineering and construction services for clients requires deep technical knowledge, thus our approach to providing complex and innovative learning continues to evolve. Receiving this award for the fourth year is an honor and a testament to the commitment and hard work of our team members."
Now in its 16th year, the Training Top 125 ranking is based on benchmarking statistics such as total training budget; percentage of payroll; number of training hours per employee program; goals, evaluation, measurement, and workplace surveys; hours of training per employee annually; and detailed formal programs. The ranking is determined by assessing a range 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.
